History Making Divorce Award

Dmitry RybolovlevThe divorce of Russian billionaire Dmitry Rybolovlev and Elena Rybolovlev is one for the history books. Not only is it an expected high profile and messy divorce, but the divorce award gives Elena $4.5 billion, which is being considered the highest award in a divorce proceeding in history. The divorce proceedings have been in a Swiss court since 2009, and the award will be appealed.
