Cha-ching! That's the sound of a massive check hitting Sue Ann Arnall's bank account.
She has just cashed a personal check for $974.8 million, written by one Harold Hamm, her billionaire ex-husband and chief executive of oil driller Continental Resources, Michael Burrage, Hamm's attorney, told CNBC.
"We have been advised by Morgan Stanley that Ms. Arnall deposited the check this afternoon," Burrage said.
It's unclear whether the check's cashing will end the bitter divorce proceedings, but it's likely that accepting the benefits of the settlement will end the appeal process.
Arnall's lawyers did not immediately respond to requests for comment.
Arnall's legal team had previously rejected Hamm's offer to pay the full cash value of what he owes, based on a November divorce ruling. Both Arnall, who was formerly Sue Ann Hamm and resumed using her birth name after the divorce, and Hamm had appealed the November divorce judgment.
