Last week the contentious (and expensive) divorce battle between Matt Block and Brooke Block entered its third year. The family business, Worldwide Primates Inc., may be the largest of the couple’s assets to be divided.
Brooke has been President of the corporation since at least 1995, when Matt started serving his prison sentence for smuggling endangered wildlife. Brooke may be entitled to a large portion of the business.
We’re dying to find out how the divorce will be settled in court. Will Matt lose Worldwide Primates to his soon-to-be ex? Will Matt buy-out Brooke’s share of the business?
Family businesses do sometimes go bankrupt, or even close down over divorce issues. We can hope!
