Unlike normal couples, when two celebrities come together in marriage, things can get haywire and escalate very quickly if their commitment doesn’t end with a happily ever after ending. Not to mention dealing with major assets like houses, planes, and children can sometimes get hostile and can cost a hefty price tag.
May this list of most expensive divorce, always serve as a strong reminder to make sure you get a prenup!
Amber Heard and Johnny Depp
Divorce Settlement: $7 million
Oof where do we even begin with these two! The former couple first met on the set of Rum Diary in 2011, and four years later tied the knot in a private event. The once co-stars announced their split after only 15 months of marriage, citing irreconcilable differences. Not after a string of drama that followed along, for instance, defecating on the bed and domestic abuse!
Princess Diana and Prince Charles
Divorce Settlement: £17 million
To say the least women all around the world wanted the fairy tale story Princess Diana had, but as well know, things were very much different behind close doors. Both were unfaithful throughout the marriage, and separated in 1992. Things have been rocky for the both and went south when Diana’s famed Panorama interview in 1995 was released. The royals officially divorced in 1996, just one year before the Princess’s unfortunate death.
Adele and Simon Konecki
Reportedly Divorce Settlement: $90 million
The singer began dating Konecki in 2011, and they married in a secret ceremony five years later. Unfortunately nearly a year later it was announced they were splitting in April 2019 and were in the final stages of completing their divorce. The Sun reported the couple didn’t sign a prenup, so there is a high possibility Konecki may have received up to half of Adele’s fortune.
Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt
Divorce Settlement: $100 million
The long time partners broke a lot of fans hearts with the announcement of their separation. Pitt reportedly offered her a $100 million settlement, but nothing has been finalized.
Jeff Bezos and MacKenzie Bezos
Divorce Settlement: $36 Billion
It came as no surprise to people that this divorce was going to cost a bomb! Amazon founder and CEO Jeff Bezos was named the world’s richest man in June 2018, his 2019 divorce from his wife of 25 years was to say the least, expensive. However the couple did have an amicable separation, as they worked out terms privately, finalizing their divorce, with Mackenzie walking away with around $36 billion, making her one of the richest women in the world.
