With any marriage, well-wishers hope the couple will be blessed with happiness and that the union will last a lifetime. But things happen – those damn irreconcilable differences get in the way. Today the divorce rate is over 40% in the US. Celebrities fight an even tougher battle due to long working hours, lots of time on location away from home, paparazzi hassles, lots of temptation…etc. When celebrities do split up, separating the assets is very difficult, but some partners walk away with a nice chunk of change. Let’s take a look at the 10 most expensive celebrity divorces.

10. Michael Douglas Divorce

Michael and Diandra Douglas married in March of 1977. The couple called it quits in 1995, possibly because Michael visited rehab in the early 90s for sex addiction. He also had some drug and alcohol problems. The couple tried to make things work, but even their marriage counselor couldn’t help. Their divorce was settled in early 2000. Diandra received $45 million when they finally split.
