While Britney Spears and Kevin Federline haven't verbally abused each other in the media, their battle over their two sons, Sean Preston and Jayden James, continues to make headlines. Amid much criticism of her parenting, Spears was ordered to relinquish custody of the two young boys to Federline as of Oct. 3. She has been granted limited, monitored visiting rights until the next custody hearing. 

Actress Liza Minnelli's fourth marriage may have been her worst. After her one-year union with concert promoter David Gest fell apart, Minnelli became a favorite target of the tabloids, with Gest alleging that she went into drunken rages and beat him during their marriage. Minnelli and Gest signed an agreement in January 2007 to end all pending lawsuits against each other and to proceed with a no-fault divorce.

Halle Berry married musician Eric Benet in 2001, but they separated in 2004 amid rumors of Benet's sex addiction. In a 2004 statement, Berry said, ""Eric and I have had marital problems for some time now and have tried to work things out together." She later told Oprah Winfrey that she will never marry again, saying, "I want love and I'll find it hopefully and have a committed relationship, but no more marriages." They officially divorced in 2005.

 

 

 




Basketball legend Michael Jordan married Juanita Vanoy in 1989, and a year later they signed a post-nup, which entitled Juanita to half of the basketball star's worth should they divorce. Always among the highest paid players during his NBA career, Jordan was -- and remains -- an endorsement cash cow, partnering with a number of A-list corporations including Nike, Gatorade and Jockey. Juanita filed for divorce in 2006, and according to London's Sunday Times, the baller is set to fork over $168 million and the couple's six-acre estate in Chicago in the coming settlement.


Harrison Ford met his ex-wife Melissa Mathison in 1977 and the two wed six years later. Harrison's acting career was on the up and up, and by 1995, he was making $20 million a film, according to Forbes Magazine. The couple divorced in 2004. Harrison is reporting that in addition to her divorce settlement, Melissa negotiated to receive part of his future earnings from films he made while they were married. The settlement came to $85 million.  


Former Beatle Paul McCartney and estranged wife Heather Mills began divorce proceedings in July 2006. At stake was the custody of their 4-year-old daughter, Beatrice, and millions of McCartney's pounds. After 19 months of battling in the courtroom and via the media, McCartney was ordered by a British court to pay Mills $48.7 million. During the acrimonious divorce proceedings, Mills did a number of television interviews trashing McCartney, alleging abuse, drug use and violent rages. Her bid for sympathy seemed to backfire, while McCartney has been seen stepping out with a number of attractive women.


Former supermodel Christie Brinkley's 10-year marriage to architect Peter Cook went kaput when the beauty discovered in 2006 that he was having an affair with his then 18-year-old assistant, Diana Bianchi.
The trial began Wednesday, July 2, when an all-star lineup of witnesses unloaded a torrent of torrid tales, including Cook's tearful admission that he enjoyed oral sex with Bianchi (whose silence he allegedly bought with a $300,000 confidentiality agreement) and his fondness for masturbating via webcam.
There were countercharges that Brinkley ransacked Cook's office and copied his hard drive; that she scratched his face out of family photos, and that she spent hundreds of thousands of dollars on private detectives to dig up dirt on Cook.


The marital assets of Hulk Hogan and Linda Hogan that need to be equitably divided in this currently ongoing divorce come out to be in the neighborhood of 50 million and include the nearly 17,000-square-foot mansion in Belleair where the family lived and a 3,474-square-foot home on Clearwater Beach.

Pinellas County records place the market value of the Belleair mansion at more than $7.2 million and the Clearwater house at more than $2.2 million. The Bolleas also have a condominium under construction in Las Vegas. In addition the court has issued a 40k per month temporary support order for Linda. The marriage broke up when Hulk was found to be having an affair with one of daughter, Brooke's, friends. Hulk stated Linda was one of his toughest opponents and admitted he regrets they are not still together.

Lionel and Diane Richie's divorce settlement was approximately $20 million, according to Forbes Magazine. When Lionel met Diane, then an 18-year-old backup dancer, he divorced his first wife. He married Diane in 1996. She filed for divorce in 2004 and detailed their luxurious lifestyle in an alimony petition. Among her claims: a monthly clothing allowance; $50,000 a month for manicures and other personal services; and a plastic surgery budget of $20,000 a year. 

Actors Kim Basinger and Alec Baldwin officially separated in 2000, and in 2004, the couple agreed to share custody of their daughter, Ireland Eliesse. They managed to stay out of the public eye for years, but in April 2007, an angry voice mail Baldwin left for his daughter was leaked to celebrity news service TMZ.com. In the message, Baldwin calls Ireland a "thoughtless little pig" for not picking up his phone call. The voice mail prompted Baldwin to accuse Basinger of leaking the tape to the press, which she denied. He eventually apologized and said on daytime talk show "The View" that he's writing a book about his messy divorce.
