Man wants kidney back from his wife as part of the divorce settlement...
$1.5 million or his kidney back-
That's the strange ultimatum a New York surgeon has given his estranged wife.
Dr Richard Batista donated his kidney to his wife Dawnell in 2001. His attorney claims that she began having an extramarital affair a couple of years after the transplant. She filed for divorce in 2005.
Dr. Batista decided to go public after four years of divorce negotations. He wants the donated kidney back, but will accept $1.5 million in compensation.
Mrs Batista and her attorney had no comment on the suit.
The couple has three children, ages, 8, 11 and 14.
