Retired Basketball superstar Michael Jordan reached the top spot again, this time it is not in the play but in the Divorce settlement which is said to be the highest amount ever paid.

According to a US Website Jordan's split last December from his wife of 17 years, Juanita, is one of "The 10 Most Expensive Celebrity Divorces."

Juanita Jordan could possibly "get more than USD 150 million in a settlement, making the Jordan divorce the most expensive in entertainment history," Website mentions.

Neil Diamond, whose 1995 divorce from Marcia Murphey cost him an estimated USD 150 million, holds second place.

Steven Spielberg comes in third for paying his ex-wife Amy Irving an estimated USD 100 million, which was then half his fortune, when they divorced in 1989.

The Oscar-winning director is now worth USD 3 billion.

Also making the list are estimated settlements between Harrison Ford and Melissa Mathison USD 85 million; Kevin Costner and Cindy Silva USD 80 million; Paul McCartney and Heather Mills, whose divorce could cost him more than USD 60 million; James Cameron and Linda Hamilton USD 50 million; Michael and Diandra Douglas USD 45 million, and two homes; Lionel and Diane Richie USD 20 million; and Mick Jagger and Jerry Hall USD 15-25 million.

The Website mentioned that they researched divorces of the last 25 years in compiling the list. - DDNews India

I know a few black couples who have 50+ years together. They aren't celebrities but I respect them to the fullest. The limelight is not the best place to look for Role Models.
