20 Most Expensive Celebrity Divorces

8. Andre Agassi and Brooke Shields – $130 million 

One of the most high-profile marriages in Hollywood was between this couple. They’re famous for having one of the highest payouts per month, married at almost $8.5 million monthly. The amount Brooke received is staggering, given that they were only married for two years.

9. Kelsey and Camilla Grammer – $30 million

These two made the mistake of not having a prenup in place when they married in 1997, and it worked out to Camille’’s advantage. Splitting in February 2011 after 14 years, Camille walked away with a sweet deal of $30 million and a deal on the “Real Housewives of Beverly Hills.”

10. Gwyneth Paltrow and Christ Martin – $100 million

Though this amount seems high, it was done as an act of “conscious uncoupling” without any drama, and since the couple both have similar net worths, they each got the same amount and shared custody of the kids.

11. Katie Holmes and Tom Cruise – $9.8 million



The tabloids covered this divorce extensively, especially since Tom was heavily involved in Scientology. Katie’s time with her action star ex earned her $4.8 million in child support and $5 million for herself, though she probably deserved more given what we know about Tom.

12. Kim Kardashian and Kanye West – $1.4 billion

Kim K signed a prenup, but since her net worth is $780 million, we’d say she’s doing okay. In the end, the divorce was well worth it since Kanye is the kind of guy who harasses his wife’s new boyfriend due to petty jealousy. West agreed to pay $200,000 monthly in child support.

13. Jeff Bezos and MacKenzie Bezos – $66 billion

Since MacKenzie spent much of her life supporting her ex, and he founded Amazon after they were married, MacKenzie walked away with a gigantic settlement—half of Jeff’s earnings, to be precise. Looks like divorcing the world’s richest man is just as good as marrying him!

14. Bill Gates and Melinda Gates – $80 billion

Just like MacKenzie, Melinda married a billionaire and walked away with billions when she left him. Though their marriage lasted 27 years, they apparently felt as though they couldn’t “grow together” anymore, and the settlement cost around $80 billion.
