Top 10 Richest Divorcees in the World 2016

Financial issues are one of the leading causes for divorce and marriage difficulties. As this list of divorced billionaires proves, however, money isn’t always the issue at stake. These successful billionaires have still divorced their spouses even in spite of their incredible wealth.

The simple fact is that sometimes love doesn’t work out and sometimes people get divorced. That’s just the way it is. Ever wonder who the richest people are who have gotten divorced? If so, we’ve put a list together for you. You’ll find a list of the richest people to ever get divorced, along with their net worth.

Perhaps its a coincidence, or perhaps not, but every person on this list is an American citizen! Of course, a major reason for that might be because the United States is home to the largest number of billionaires. Then again, the United States also has one of the world’s highest divorce rates.
