Most Expensive Celebrity Divorces

While last week we took a very serious look at the ramifications of divorce and the ravaging effects it has on the family unit; this week we decided to take a different spin and take a look at some of the most expensive celebrity divorces in history. Compared to the divorces we’ll discuss below; a DIY uncontested online divorce would be bargain at half the price. We can only speculate what the Demi and Ashton final tally may be and where it may rank along with some of the items below. And while we are proud that we offer inexpensive divorces online; here we present a collection of the Most Notably Expensive Divorces.

Starting the list and maybe a startling low sum given some of the later entries is Paul McCartney and Heather Mills. Mills was awarded 48.6 million dollars-a fraction of McCartney’s real worth. While the couple were married close to 6 years and do have a child between them the Judge of the case was apparently none too fond of Mill’s or perhaps simply a huge fan of McCartney. At the ruling the Justice was on record as saying “I am driven to the conclusion that much of her evidence, both written and oral, was not just inconsistent and inaccurate but also less than candid.” After getting off easy on what some speculated could have been in the $100 Million category-Maybe Hes Amazed at how easily he got off by comparison.

Next we see the divorce of Kevin Costner and Cindy Silva. Long married and having dated since their college days- the two had 3 children and a 16 year marriage before calling it quits towards their California divorce in 1994. Silva may have been the luckiest woman on the planet for the Buy Low Sell High principle- while married Costner made Field of Dreams, Dances with Wolves, & JFK; after the split he made Waterworld, The Postman, and a slew of other failures. Even in the world of high end high dollar divorce-Timing is everthing.

Coming in next on the list is Han Solo/Indiana Jones star Harrison Ford and ex Melissa Mathison. After 18 years of marriage and enough Star Wars and Indiana Jones money to buy Greece; Ford decided to seek greener, younger pastures. Mathison came out of the divorce sitting pretty having cashed out to the tune of $85 million-not to mention a share of future earnings from the movies he made while they were married. No word on whether or not her divorce lawyer has yet been contacted by professional athletes to represent them on their next contract.

$100 million dollars later all the while continuing the Indiana Jones theme… Steven Spielberg and Amy Irving. Even though they had signed a prenuptial agreement Irving was able to convince the court that she wasn’t properly represented legally for the signing. While being known as one of the all time highest grossing filmmakers its a mystery as to why Spielberg didn’t simply ring up and ask Harrison Ford’s for the number of his wife’s divorce attorney.

Add another $100 million dollars for the Tiger Woods and Elin Nordegren divorce. While most men cannot fathom the idea of needing to cheat when married to a Super Model; Woods overactive use of his putter cost him plenty. His career has yet to recover and he has yet to regain his form which made him a household name and arguably the biggest superstar and phenomena that the gold world has ever seen.

And moving right along we see our next musician to make the list with Neil Diamond and Marcia Murphy. Diamond who wrote “I’m a Believer” for the Monkees in the 60s and then struck gold on his own with too many hits to count throughout the 70s and 80s. The pair divorced and settled amicably for a paltry $150 million with Diamond on record as saying Murphy “earned every penny” and that “she’s been through thick and thin with [him] and deserves half of [his] fortune.” We’re pretty sure Spielberg and Ford were quite as complimentary to their exes.

Coming in with a slam dunk we see our first Athlete of the list with the $168 million dollar divorce of Michael Jordan and Juanita Vanoy Jordan. The couple filed for divorce in 2002 but reconciled-probably at the insistence of Jordan’s accountant. In 2006 they filed again for good with Juanita walking with the multimillion dollar 7 acre estate and $168 million-that will buy a lot of Nikes.

And trumping all in the mother of all divorce settlements comes Rupert and Anna Murdoch which saw the Gazillion dollar Aussie Mogul cough up a stunning 1.7 billion in assets for their 1999 divorce settlement. Murdoch married his much younger employee Wendi Deng only 17 days later. I can venture a guess that when Deng decides to divorce Murdoch she will use the previous 1.7 billion settlement and raise the price accordingly.
