Dmitry and Elena Rybolovlev: $604 Million
How could you ever be happy that you owe $604 million to your ex in a divorce? Well, you’d be grateful if the courts had previously ruled you owed her $4.5 billion. This is essentially what happened with the split of Russian billionaire Dmitry Rybolovlev and his ex-wife Elena. Court battles dragged on from 2008 through 2015, with a 2014 Swiss court ruling awarding her $4.5 billion. After an appeal, though, he “only” had to pay $604 million—but she got to keep two Swiss chalets in the settlement.
