Settlement Amount: $1 Billion-$1.2 Billion
The 2009 divorce between billionaire Bernie Ecclestone and wife Slavica was at the time thought to be the most expensive in history—in the range of $4 billion. However, the final settlement is estimated by various reports to be in the range of $1 billion to $1.2 billion. The settlement has not been made public, but experts from across the globe believe the latter number is more realistic.
Since the settlement, Slavica, a former Armani model who stands nearly a foot taller than her ex-husband, has been buying some new toys with her wealth, now estimated to be £743 million ($1.16 billion) by The Times of London. Part of her recent shopping spree is a new $60 million private plane.
