These famous couples faced sensationally HUGE payouts during the end of their marriages
The couple – who married in 2009 just one month after they first met – signed papers to officially end their marriage this week after much speculation about a possible reconciliation.
Khloé, 31, reportedly first filed for divorce over a year and a half ago but there was no progress made with the documents on basketball player Lamar’s part – until now.
Both have put pen to paper and their split will be made official when a judge signs the papers.
It’s not yet known what sort of settlement Khloé and Lamar will reach. Could it be a costly affair?
One thing’s for sure – it’s unlikely to be as pricey as these cases! Here’s some of Hollywood’s most expensive divorces EVER…
Ted Danson and Casey Coates – £19 million
American actor Ted paid the price for having an affair with Whoopi Goldberg during his second marriage to producer Casey. The couple – who had a girl, Kate, together and adopted a second daughter called Alexis – ended things in 1993 after 16 years and it reportedly cost Ted £19 million.
Paul McCartney and Heather Mills – £24.3 million
Who could possibly forget the acrimonious split between Paul and Heather? The Beatles singer officially separated from second wife Heather – with whom he had a daughter, Beatrice – in 2008 and the former model was awarded £24.3 million in the divorce settlement, despite apparently seeking £125 million.
Madonna and Guy Ritchie – £50 million
They were a superstar couple the world over following their wedding in 2000 but things turned sour for Madonna and Guy Ritchie. Their break-up was announced in late 2008 and they were soon divorced, with Madge paying out between £50 and £60 million to the British film director.
At the time Madonna’s spokeswoman said: ‘I’d assume it’s one of the largest payouts ever in a divorce.’ There have been even costlier splits though…
Neil Diamond and Marcia Murphey – £98 million
Back in 1996 crooner Neil was reported to have handed over half of his fortune to second wife Marcia in their divorce case, with the figure said to be a whopping £98 million. Neil has since denied that it was that large though, having said in 2012: ‘I told my former wife, “Honey, I wish it were true. I’d love to give that to you.” But musicians don’t make that kind of money.’
Mel Gibson and Robyn Moore Gibson – £250 million
Mel’s split from wife Robyn – the mother of seven of his children – in 2011 was said to be Hollywood’s most expensive divorce ever. The break-up apparently cost movie star Mel at least £250 million – WOAH. They never had a pre-nuptial agreement so Robyn was entitled to more than half of her man’s earnings.
