Most Expensive Divorce

One of the richest men in the world, Rupert Murdoch developed his worldwide media empire when he inherited his father’s Australian newspaper in 1952. He married Anna Murdoch in the ’60s and they remained together for 32 years, springing off three children.  They split amicably in 1998 but soon Rupert forced Anna off the board of News Corp and the gloves came off.

The divorce was finalized in June 1999 when Rupert agreed to let his ex-wife leave with $1.7 billion worth of his assets, $110 million of it in cash. Seventeen days later, Rupert married Wendi Deng, one of his employees.
