Thu 22-05-2014

The owner of Monaco football club has been ordered to pay a world record divorce settlement of more than £2.6 billion to his ex-wife. ($3362800.00)

Judges in Switzerland said Dmitry Rybolovlev, has to give Elena Rybolovleva, who was with him for 24 years, a very precise 4,020,555,987 Swiss francs and 20 centimes. ($4,499,437,108.56) an estimate of half the Russian oligarch’s entire fortune.

Dmitri Rybolovlev, who made his billions through a successful fertiliser business, must make the payment following a six-year court battle.

It follow a six year legal saga in which Mr Rybolovlev, who made his billions through a successful fertiliser business, bitterly contested Mrs Rybolovleva’s claims to two of the most expensive properties in the USA and a £100million Greek island.

Now Mr Rybolovlev must sign a cheque for the incredible sum in the Swiss city of Geneva, where Mrs Rybolovleva lives in a lakeside mansion.
