The 25 Most Expensive Hollywood Divorces Oct 26, 2016 by Sarah (Day Styles)

While some of these marriages didn’t last very long, they all cost a whole lot of money when husband and wife had to divide their assets - or fight it out in court! Here are 25 of the most expensive celebrity divorces in history.

Michael Douglas and Diandra Luker

Michael and Diandra Douglas divorced after twenty-three years in 2000. Douglas now admits that they probably should have ended the marriage about ten years earlier and that the marriage was rocky from the start. No wonder, as Douglas (who was then 32) married Diandra Luker, the daughter of an Austrian diplomat, when she was just nineteen in 1978. They separated in 1999 and Diandra filed for divorce.

Michael had to pay his wife an estimated $45 million dollars. But the unfortunate divorce didn’t stop him from falling for and eventually marrying Catherine Zeta-Jones in 2000. At first, it looked like he was headed for a second divorce when they separated in 2013, but they later reconciled. Good luck, Douglas.
