Retired American astronaut Buzz Aldrin has officially divorced his third wife, Lois Driggs Cannon.

Aldrin will have to pay his ex-wife half his fortune following the divorce settlement.

According to the New York Post, some reports suggested that she would get half of a 475,000 dollars bank account plus profits from her ex husband's businesses, trademarks and stocks.

Aldrin, 82, further agreed to pay Cannon 9,500 dollars a month plus 30 percent of his annual estimated 600,000 dollars-plus income.

According to the report, Cannon even keeps a 1988 Mercedes with the license plate "MOONGAL."

Aldrin was the second man to ever step foot on the moon following Neil Armstrong, after the two men landed there in space-flight Apollo 11 on July 20, 1969. (ANI)
