She got that BILLION dollar…

Russian Businessman Loses Billions In Biggest Divorce Settlement Ever

The phrase “it’s cheaper to keep her” has likely never been truer. Via ABCNews:

A Russian billionaire is separating from his wife — and $4.5 billion of his assets.

Among Dmitry Rybolovlev’s holdings, through various ownership structures, are reportedly a $95 million Palm Beach mansion (which once belonged to Donald Trump), an $88 million New York apartment and islands in Greece and Hawaii.

The self-made fertilizer mogul, who is worth an estimated $8.8 billion, according to Forbes, was ordered by a Swiss court on Monday to pay his ex-wife, Elena Rybolovleva, approximately half of his net worth in what could be the largest divorce settlement in history.

The couple was married in 1987.

Marc Bonnant, the lawyer for Elena Rybolovleva, said he was pleased with the ruling because it was “exactly what she asked for.”

Yeah…we bet that’s exactly what she asked for! But wait…that’s not even all she’s getting.

The court granted her just over 4 billion Swiss francs, or just over $4.5 billion, although Bonnant believed it could end up being even more. She was also granted custody over their young daughter plus 115,000 Swiss francs, or just under $129,000, per month to help raise her.

Damn…$4.5 billion, multimillion dollar properties, private islands AND $130,000 a month in child support?!? Now, that’s some pricey poon!

Ladies take note…he’s still got half his fortune and he’s newly single. Who wants to be the next ex Mrs. Rybolovlev??
