The world’s highest divorce payout in the making as Russian oligarch’s wife demands $5.77 billion

Move over Tiger Woods! Here is the highest divorce payout to date! The 10th richest Russian, 43-year old Dmitry Rybolovlev, is all set to get a break away from his wife of 23 years and two daughters. What is at stake for the mining magnate apart from that? His art collection, which includes paintings by Picasso, Van Gogh, Gauguin, and Monet. A $109.39million motor yacht called “The MY Anna” and a $94.14 million mansion in Palm Beach, Florida, originally owned by Donald Trump. Mrs. Rybolovlev’s claim will be close to $5.77 billion, or half the wealth her husband earned since their marriage in 1987.

Although she believes that he owns much more, he says that she signed papers in 2005 limiting any divorce settlement to just over $91 million. It won’t be a record if he proves it in the end, would it?
