History's Most Costly Divorces


When people think of divorce their minds often drift to the financial implications, especially when children are not involved. There is good reason for this, as divorce can have a lifelong impact on a person's finances. 

Throughout history there have been staggeringly costly divorces that have demonstrated this. Let's take a look. 

A Billion Dollar Divorce

Bernie Ecclestone's divorce from Slavica in 2009 is estimated to have cost between $1 billion and $1.2 billion. Let's write that out: $1,200,000,000. That's a lot of digits and a lot of bills. 

Multimillion Dollar Divorces

  • Harold Hamm and Sue Ann Arnall- $974.8 million
  • Adnan Khashoggi and Soraya Khashoggi- $850 million
  • Mel Gibson and Robyn Moore Gibson- $425 million
  • Michael Jordan and Juanita Jordan- $168 million
  • Steven Spielberg and Amy Irving- $100 million


These totals are extreme examples of the financial totals involved in a divorce. Let's face it: most people are not celebrities worth hundreds of millions of dollars. However, whether you make millions annually or you find yourself solidly in the middle class, it is crucial to protect your financial wellbeing.
