Settlement Amount: $4.8 Billion

To date, the most expensive divorce settlement was between Russian billionaire Dmitry Rybolovlev and his wife, businesswoman and socialite Elena Rybolovelva, who separated after 26 years of marriage.

The court ordered Rybolovlev to pay his ex-wife $4.5 billion, which is half of his estimated $8.8 billion fortune, as well as $146 million in property in Switzerland and $150 million in alimony payments, according to The Associated Press.

Rybolovelva ultimately received $4.8 billion from the divorce, according to the AP report.
