Revealed: The Most Expensive Celebrity & Athlete Divorce Settlements

Paul McCartney & Heather Mills – $48.6 Million

When Sir Paul McCartney and Heather Mills celebrated their marriage with a lavish $3.2 million wedding in Ireland, he probably wasn’t thinking that he’d be spending a whole lot more than that dissolving it. In the end, McCartney’s investment in Mills didn’t turn out too well for the former Beatle, as he had to pay her $48.6 million as a divorce settlement. The model turned activist was also awarded $15 million in real estate, including an English seaside condo in Angel’s Rest, and a countryside home in Pean’s Wood.
