It’s all fun and games during the dating stage, and the marriage part is supposed to be the best bit. But sometimes it’s not a happy ending, and just like the rest of us, divorces can get messy.
For ‘normal’ people, divorces are relatively straightforward. The worst part is deciding who gets the dog and the comfy sofa, but it’s a whole different ball game for the rich and famous.
Check out the most expensive divorces in Hollywood history – it’s enough to put you off marriage for life!
Kelsey Grammer vs Camile Grammer
To be fair, he kind of deserved this as he did have an affair with then mistress Kayte Walsh. His infidelity cost him his marriage and $30 million. But we guess it wasn’t all bad for him, as he did go on to marry Kayte, around the time his divorce was finalised. They’ve since become parents .
Charlie Sheen vs Denise Richards
Nothing was particularly good about their time together and it certainly didn’t change after they split. Their divorce was messy and Sheen went as far as to evict Richards and their children from the family home. She was awarded $40 million and he was ordered to pay $10 million in child support for the first 15 years after their divorce.
Michael Douglas vs Diandra Luker
These two split after 18 years of marriage and Luker got to walk away with $45 million – half of the actors worth at the time. She also got to share the rights to some of his works produced during their marriage. In an interview long after their split, he admitted that his only regret was that his first marriage didn’t end sooner (as he’s now married to the stunning Catherine Zeta Jones).
