Pop Poll: Lara Bingle Fighting for Michael Clarke's Millions

Lara Bingle seemed to be getting her life back on track after a series of bungles. She fired controversial celebrity manager Max Markson, returned her pricey engagement ring to cricketer Michael Clarke and then she went off to New York for a break. She insisted that she wanted to lead a “quiet” life out of the limelight and was going to work to earn back people’s respect. But today news broke that there is a battle brewing for Michael’s millions and that Lara’s mother is encouraging her daughter to fight for a big piece of the pie. Lara is reportedly aiming for a hefty seven-figure payout which would include the $230,000 Aston Martin sportscar he gave her, along with the value of her $200,000 engagement ring. Lara’s mum also wants her to receive property, cash and furniture on top of that. According to a source, her mother, "doesn't think [Michael] looked after Lara, being away as much as he was, and wants him to pay dearly." The couple were together for three years and are treated the same as a marriage under de facto laws. Michael earns more than $3 million a year and has $9 million in property. What do you think? Should Lara fight for a hefty settlement or just get on with it already?
