(CREDIT - THE WRESTLING OBSERVER) - Nancy Benoit filed for divorce in May, 2003, saying that her three-year marriage to Chris Benoit was irrevocably broken and alleging cruel treatment. She dropped the complaint in August of the same year, as well as a request for a restraining order in which she charged that Benoit had threatened her and had broken furniture in their home. In the divorce filing, she said that Benoit made more than $500,000 per year as a professional wrestler and asked for permanent custody of Daniel and child support. In response, Benoit sought joint custody. The Fayette County Tax Assessors Office lists the value of the house, situated on more than three acres, at nearly $900,000.
