Next >

Not having a prenuptial agreement can really come back to bite you if you’re rich. Over the years, rich people have had millions taken away from them when a spouse wanted out of a marriage. There have been songs and movies written about gold diggers, but they don’t even begin to scratch the surface on how much money is really involved.

It doesn’t quite seem fair, but hey, what can you do?

So which notable names have been taken for the highest amount when their spouse decided to call it quits? Here are the 16 most expensive divorces settlements ever.
