Breaking up tends to be difficult, even more so if you're super wealthy.

Follow up:

2014 saw the most expensive divorce in history when Dmitry Rybolovlev and Elena Rybolovleva parted ways in May. The scale of the divorce settlement between the Russian-born Monégasque businessman and his wife? An astonishing $4.5 billion!

What about other expensive divorces down through the years? Alec Wildenstein and Jocelyn Perisse's divorce in 1999 came in at about $2.5 billion, placing it second on the list. Rupert Murdoch and Wendi Deng divorced in 2013 with a mammoth $1.8 billion settlement - the third costliest divorce in history. Interestingly, Murdoch was also involved in the fifth costliest divorce back in 1999 when Anna Maria Torv received a settlement of $1.2 billion.

This chart shows the estimated value of the ten most expensive divorces.
