Expensive Celeb Divorce: Although when people get married, they vow to stand by one another’s side in good times and bad, in sickness and in health, that’s not always the case.
Unfortunately, divorce is a reality that some marriages go through. When divorce occurs, one of the things couples have to deal with is “settlement”.
However, when you are a mega-wealthy celebrity, these settlements tend to get quite hefty.
The Most Breathtakingly Expensive Celeb Divorce Settlements
Here are the most expensive or should I say insanely expensive divorce settlements ever:
Reba McEntire and Narvel Blackstock – $47.5 Million
In 2015, Reba McEntire and Narvel Blackstock announced their divorce, leaving their fans completely shocked. Although they are separated, the two remain on good terms and supportive of one another. Their assets are divided evenly.
Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt – $400 Million
Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie are one of the most talked-about celebrity divorces of all time. They share custody of their children and in 2019, the two were officially divorced. Their settlement is estimated to be $400 million in total.
Kevin Costner and Cindy Silva – $80 Million
After 16 years of marriage, Kevin Costner and Cindy Silva decided to officially separate. They share two children.
There were rumors that Kevin was not faithful, and he was forced to pay about $80 million to Silva. However, he later admitted that he had fathered a child with socialite Bridget Rooney.
Alec and Jocelyn Wildenstein – $2.5 Billion
This is one of the most expensive celeb divorce. Alec Wildenstein (a French businessman and billionaire), was forced to pay his former wife Jocelyn about $2.5 billion when they divorced.
Michael and Diandra Douglas – $45 Million
Michael Douglas and Diandra got married in 1977, and the two had a son together. But 18 years later, Diandra filed for divorce, and she ended up receiving half of Michael’s net worth at the time. This came out to about $45 million.
Robert and Sheila Johnson – $400 million
Robert Johnson (Co-founder of TV channel BET) separated from his wife of 33 years in 2002. In the divorce settlement, his wife received about $400 million, and Robert sold BET to Viacom, earning him $3 billion.
Bernie and Slavica Ecclestone – $1 Billion
Bernie and Slavica separated and she received about $1 billion in the divorce settlement. Slavica wisely made some investments with the money and has since been able to turn that billion into $1.6 billion.
Rupert Murdoch and Anna Maria Torv – $1.2 Billion
Rupert and Anna were married for 32 years before they decided to divorce in 1999. Rupert’s net worth at the time was about $8 billion, and Anna wound up with about $1.2 billion as a settlement.
