THE MOST EXPENSIVE DIVORCE
The most expensive divorce in the world is worth $4,36 billion…

Marc Bonnant, Ms Rybolovleva’s clearly enchanted lawyer, said the figure represented an ‘amicable settlement’ after six years of harsh negotiations. Dmitry and Elena are both 47 years old. Their marriage lasted 24 years. His wife is also touched on some real estate jewel, over custody of the couple’s youngest daughter, Anna, who is only 13 years old. With the amount of money she will get, Dmitry’s ex-wife could become the richest woman on the planet.
When talking about the list of the thousand wealthy subjects, the leading is Slavica Ecclestone – Bernie Ecclestone’s ex-wife. The owner of Formula 1 had to splash out the imposing figure of £740 million ($1,24 billion).
Irina Malandina is not doing badly either, she finished as the runner-up with £155 million ($261 million) as settlement obtained by Russian tycoon Roman Abramovich, whose personal fortune is worth £10 billion ($17 billion).
Also on the list is Diana Jenkins, the recipient of a severance pay of £150 million ($252 million) after her divorce from wealthy banker Roger Jenkins. In fourth place, with £100 million ($168 million), is Galina Besharova, a former Russian oligarch Boris Berezovsky’s wife. Although she certainly cannot complain.
