When love fails it can hurt A LOT…. and in Hollywood, it can cost you big time! Unfortunately, so many Hollywood romances end in divorce, and when both parties are worth millions, things can get ugly, pretty fast.
With that being said here are the most expensive celebrity divorces ever:
Mel Gibson and Robyn Moore
The couple were married for 26 years and had seven children together, but divorced after a string of arrests and DUI charges. Mel had to pay his wife $425 million as a result. (Yes, you read that right, $425 million!)
Michael Jordan and Juanita Jordan
Michael Jordan was married for 17 years and filed for divorce in 2006. Juanita received a reported $168 million because the pair did not have a prenuptial agreement in place.
Neil Diamond and Marcia Murphey
Neil Diamond divorced Marcia Murphey in 1994 after 25 years of marriage, and Marcia got half his fortune, estimated around $150 million. Sweet Caroline, indeed!
Tiger Woods and Elin Nordegren
The well-respected golfer shocked the world when details of his many extra-marital affairs surfaced in late 2009. His wife received a $110 million dollar settlement and their divorce was finalized in August of 2010.
Steven Spielberg and Amy Irving
When the director and his wife divorced in 1989, it has been reported she walked away with $100 million, roughly half his fortune. This was even with an “unofficial” prenup.
