The co-founders of the giant casino resort Wynn Resorts divorced (second time) in 2010. According to the terms of the settlement agreement, Elaine, a member of the Wynn Resorts board of directors since 2002, received 11 million shares, the value of which was then estimated at $ 795 million. Steve also sold approximately $ 114 million of shares that year - part, if not all, went to Elaine as part of the transaction. In 2012, she filed a lawsuit against Wynn Resorts, trying to sell part of her stake at 9%, and three years later she lost her seat on the board during a scandal due to a proxy vote.
Steve stepped down as CEO and chairman of Wynn Resorts in February 2018, after denial of sexual harassment. After that, he sold all his shares. Now Elaine, whose fortune is $ 2 billion, is the largest shareholder in the company.
Roy and Patricia Disney
How much did the billionaire pay his ex-wife - $ 600 million
Roy and his wife filed for divorce after 52 years of marriage in 2007. Then they were 77 and 72 years old, respectively. The fortune of Roy, the nephew of Walt Disney, at that time was about $ 1.3 billion. Until then, he was a regular member of the Forbes 400 rating. But because of the divorce, he lost almost half of his wealth and left the list. In 2008, he married screenwriter and producer Leslie DeMeuse. A year later, he died. Patricia passed away in 2012. A fund named in their honor with assets of $ 122 million (as of 2016) supports environmental and economic projects.
