Madonna and Guy Ritchie: $76 million

The Material Girl spent much of 2008 denying that something was amiss with her husband, filmmaker Guy Ritchie, a rumor that reached a fever pitch amid reports she was having an affair with New York Yankee Alex Rodriguez. But by October 2008, the couple confirmed their marriage was over and the rumor mills churned out stories about how bitter and ugly their union had become. In February 2009, The Sun reported that Ritchie had taken to referring to his famous ex as "It," as in "'Oh, It's in a bad mood today.'" In response, Madonna's press rep, Liz Rosenberg, told Page Six, "It hasn't been in a bad mood since the divorce was finalized." And presumably, neither had the former Mr. Madonna, who reportedly earned anywhere from a whopping $76 million to $92 million in the settlement, since the singer was rumored not to have signed a pre-nup. "I'd assume it's one of the largest payouts ever in a divorce settlement," Rosenberg told the AP. (AP Photo/Evan Agostini)
