Love hurts: The most expensive celebrity divorces

Madonna and Guy Ritchie
Estimated settlement: between £50-60 million

The Material Girl gave away between £50-60 million of her £500 million fortune when she parted ways with Guy Ritchie, though the exact figure was never revealed.

In fact, just after Madonna's spokesperson suggested the above figures, the couple released a joint statement saying the original statement had been inaccurate.

"I enjoyed my first marriage. It's definitely not something I regret. The experience was ultimately very positive," says Guy, who has two children – adopted David Banda and Rocco - with the pop star.

But he adds: "I stepped into a soap opera, and I lived in it for quite a long period of my life."
