Court kicks YouTube rant missus into touch

Appeal against 'inhuman treatment' divorce fails

Smith was subsequently granted a divorce on the grounds of cruel and inhuman treatment, with the judge describing his ex's outburst as "a calculated and callous campaign to embarrass and humiliate [him]". She was ejected from their New York apartment with the aforementioned modest pay-off as consolation for the nightmare ordeal she'd evidently been subjected to.
