Christina Milian and The Dream
After a whirlwind romance and getting divorced just ten months after getting married, these two dealt with some drama during their split. The Dream filed divorce papers just nine days before daughter Violet was born and he was rumored to pay Christina an estimated $4 million divorce settlement along with $5k a month in child support. They also came into conflict over Justin Bieber’s single “Baby” because Dream supposedly promised Christina 10 percent of it.
Marrying each other just eleven months after dating, this union may have been doomed from that start. Givens has said that she “lived in fear” of the fighter while Tyson accused Robin of using him for his money. Tyson also claimed he caught Brad Pitt in bed with his wife and that’s what ended their union. The end result? A 10 million divorce settlement after only a few months of marriage.
Eddie and Nicole Murphy
After dating for a year and a half, these two had five children and a 13 year marriage. After divorcing in 2006, Nicole was estimated to received a cool one time payment of $15 million.
This power couple was bound to break up sooner or later.. there can only be one diva per household! After meeting when she was only 17 and he was 35, their marriage lasted eight years and produced two children. Russell and Kimora Lee Simmons had quite the amicable split. Wondering just how much it cost him? He was ordered to pay out $40k per month in child support ($20,000 for each child) until they turn 19 years of age. Russell does want to get something clear, though.
After getting married in July 2003 after two years of dating, Kelis and Nas had one epic ugly divorce battle. Kelis filed for divorce in May 2009 while seven months pregnant. Nas was reported to pay an estimated $40k per month in spousal and child support (which was later reduced to $25k). The irony? Kelis gave birth to her son a day after the child support and spousal support ruling.
Michael and Juanita Jordan
This was one marriage we thought just might make it. After being married for 18 years, the couple called it quits in 2006. Their split ended up costing the basketball legend an estimated $168 million. Talk about hoop dreams!
After what was known as possibly the biggest payout in celebrity divorce history, Tiger Woods and Elin Nordegren take the cake on this one. After being married for five years, no one can forget the way these two split. In the divorce settlement in which Tiger quite literally paid for her silence, he was estimated to pay a rumored $750 million in exchange for her to never be able to speak on his infidelity. Fair trade?!
