To be honest, celebrity marriages are short lived, well most of them are. In addition, we are bound to hear the news of their separation, sooner or later. Often the sudden rise to fame of a spouse or the infidelity rumors shrouding a marriage, prove to be the reason of the split. However while some marriages are headed for divorce right from the beginning (Kim Kardashian anyone?), the others are cut short due to some reason or the other. The very recent couple to head to splitsville is Hrithik Roshan and Suzaane Roshan.
However whatâ€™s more shocking than their divorce is the amount of money that is being rumored to have been asked by Suzanne as alimony, it has been said that an amount of 400crore has to be paid by the suave actor to his wife of seventeen years. This huge amount of money has made many people talk about the marriage and Suzanne in particular, though the reports have not been confirmed yet and no one knows if actually that is the amount asked by Suzanne, the fact remains that celebrity divorces are an expensive affair. Here are five most expensive divorces in the celebrity world:
1. Mel Gibson and Robyn Denis Moore
The couple was married in Australia long before Mel Gibson rose to fame and became a famous Hollyood actor. Thirty one years later, the wife files for divorce and was awarded with a heavy amount of $425 million as alimony. Now thatâ€™s something.
2. Arnold Schwarzenegger and Maria Shriver
The ‘Terminator’ and former Governor of California was rumored to have an affair with her housekeeper and thus followed the divorce with wife Maria Shiver. The settlement is yet to be finalized, but Maria is reported to receive $200 million.
3. Neil Diamond and Marcia Murphey
In 1969, aspiring singer Neil Diamond married television production assistant Marcia Murphey. In 1994, Murphy filed for divorce after 25 years of marriage, due to irreconcilable differences. She received almost half of Neil’s money as alimony.
4. Harrison Ford and Melissa Mathison
After 17 years of marriage, the couple got divorced in 2001 and in the absence of a prenuptial agreement, Melissa ended up with $118million of the actor’s hard-earned money.
5. Steven Spielberg and Amy Irving
After four years of marriage, the couple parted ways where Irving received $100 million, half of what Spielberg was worth at that time. Today Spielberg is worth $3 billion, if only she had waited a few more years!
