WEST PALM BEACH — The divorce of one of South Florida’s power couples is about to be finalized.
Palm Beach County State Attorney Dave Aronberg and former Miami Dolphins cheerleader Lynn Aronberg signed a divorce settlement during an intimate afternoon drink earlier this week at The Breakers in Palm Beach.
In all, according to a source familiar with the negotiations, the former Lynn Lewis, who parlayed her old Dolphins gig into a successful PR firm, is getting about $100,000 worth of goodies in exchange for her signature on the dotted line.
The deal calls for Aronberg, 46, to pay for half of Lynn’s rent in a luxury Boca Raton condo until next summer. She’s also getting a brand new BMW and $40,000 cash.
Aronberg is a Democratic powerhouse who served in the state senate for nearly 10 years. He is eyeing a run for the U.S. Congress in a district that includes Palm Beach, Martin and St. Lucie counties.
Until he was first elected to the county’s top law enforcement job in 2012, he worked for Florida Attorney General Pam Bondi as her statewide prosecutor in charges of prescription drug scams.
The divorce seemed to be stalling last month when Lynn started interviewing nationally famous divorce lawyers. A couple weeks later, the torn lovebirds had a deal.
Lynn released a statement on behalf of both herself and the state attorney: “After much consideration over the past few months, we’ve decided to respectfully and amicably part ways and end our marriage. We are, however, dedicated to remaining close friends. We kindly ask for your support in preserving our privacy as we start to navigate this new chapter of our lives.”
Aronberg is exploring a challenge to rookie U.S. CongressmanBrian Mast in next year’s mid-term election.
He and Lynn were married in May 2015 in a sunset ceremony on St. Pete Beach.
They have no children, which was a problem for Lynn: She said when she first filed that she wanted children while Aronberg was in no hurry.
A staunch Republican and supporter of President Donald Trump, Lynn also said she felt increasingly isolated in the marriage.
