Reported as the most expensive divorce in history, Dmitry Rybolovlev and his ex-wife Elena have reached a settlement on the division of their finances. They are reported to have been together for 23 years, and have three children. The courts in Switzerland were dealing with the case. At one point Elena was awarded £2.9 billion which was reported as being over half of her ex-husband's wealth. A Swiss appeal court reduced this to £390 million.
The case was due to be heard in the Swiss Supreme Court, but the parties settled somewhere in the middle for an undisclosed amount.
It was meant to be the divorce of the century. The “most expensive in history,” according to one of the lawyers involved. The six-year legal battle that put Russian billionaire Dmitry Rybolovlev in the spotlight has quietly come to an end, after he agreed to an undisclosed settlement with his ex-wife Elena, who at one point had been awarded $4.5 billion by a Swiss court.
