Rupert and Anna Murdoch: $1.7 billion

Yowza, Elin Nordegren is not quite the queen of divorce settlements: Anna Murdoch Mann, newspaper mogul Rupert Murdoch's ex-wife, received $1.7 billion—$110 million in cash—from the couple's infamous 1999 split, in what is called the "most expensive" divorce settlement in history. Although at first they broke up amicably after 30 years together, Mann (who has since remarried) was determined to give Murdoch's older children, three of whom were hers, the right to approve any change in the family trust that controls News Corp., ensuring that they could not be pushed aside for any new children. Murdoch remarried company employee Wendi Deng just 17 days after the divorce was finalized and has since had two more children. Mann said her ex-husband "behaved badly" in the divorce, and two years after it was finalized, she said she felt as though she was "coming out of a state of mental illness."
