The Most Expensive Divorce in the World: Rupert and Anna Murdoch Settlement of $1.7 Billion
The famous saying, “Marriages are made in heaven” sometimes does not work well in the real world. Apparently in the current scenario the sacred matrimonial bond turns particularly sour when famous celebrity couples run into difficulties in their married life and the drama is catapulted in the center of the media limelight. Such divorces therefore become even more complicated and difficult to manage. Reportedly, when there is an absence of important documents like the prenuptial agreement, differences in several international laws and situations crop up during the separation process and turn it into an even more painful experience. It ultimately results in a whopping amount being paid during the course of court proceedings. According to media reports, business magnate Rupert Murdoch's separation with his second wife Anna Murdoch is considered to be the most expensive divorce settlement in the world till date. It is estimated that the ex-Mrs. Murdoch was awarded an exorbitant sum of $ 1.7 billion as part of her divorce settlement. To top it all Anna received $ 110 million worth of cash when the former couple settled their infamous divorce agreement way back in 1999. The ex-couple who share three children between them parted their ways amicably after more than 30 years of being together. Anna was determined to give her children legal rights to enable them to approve any kind of change in the family trust which controls their ancestral business. It seems that the mother of three wanted to be certain that her children should not be left in the lurch and would be treated at par with any new children of the media tycoon. Rupert also entered into his third matrimonial arrangement with Wendi Dang, who was employed in his media firm at that time just 17 days later after the divorce proceedings with Anna was finalized. The couple later on had two more children. A few years after the split Anna revealed some personal details about her divorce settlement and the claimed that her former husband did not co-operate normally with her. Both Anna and Rupert later remarried.
