These Celebs Walked Away Way Richer!

Hollywood is a dangerous place, and being famous has many downsides. For every celebrity, there are dozens of gold diggers, sharks, and charlatans plotting to steal millions. Some stars are happy to be sugar mamas or sugar daddies, while others are seduced and manipulated into losing their fortunes. So, join us as we check out actors, musicians, athletes, and entrepreneurs’ divorce settlements and parasitic relationships of today and yesteryear.

Amber Heard and Johnny Depp

Johnny Depp married actress Amber Heard in 2015, but 15 months later, Heard filed for divorce and obtained a restraining order against Johnny, alleging his abusive behavior. During divorce proceedings, Amber requested $50,000 a month to “support her lifestyle.”

Amber Heard and Johnny Depp

Depp paid a divorce settlement of seven million dollars, which Heard pledged to donate to charity. *Narrator’s voice* – She didn’t. Johnny was all but cleared of allegations of bad behavior in a 2022 Depp vs. Heard defamation case that backfired on Amber spectacularly when the world got to see her true colors.

Kris Humphries and Kim Kardashian

Long before Kim Kardashian and Kanye West’s $2.7 billion divorce, NBA player Kris Humphries was married to Kim… for 72 days! They met in 2010 and tied the knot in 2011 with the E! Network broadcasting the wedding preparations and ceremony.

Humphries soon wised up and wanted the marriage annulled, alleging it was a sham staged for Kim’s reality TV show, Keeping Up With the Kardashians. Kris regretfully rejected a $10 million settlement, and the couple divorced after an 18-month court battle.

Amber Rose and Kanye West/Wiz Khalifa

Many believe Kanye West’s “Gold Digger” is about Amber Rose, but the song was released three years before they started dating in 2008. When they split, the voluptuous model and rapper started dating Wiz Khalifa in 2011.

Amber Rose and Kanye West/Wiz Khalifa

They married in 2013 and seemed happy together until she filed for divorce and custody of their son in 2014. She came out of the proceedings with a cool million bucks. Next up were brief flings with Machine Gun Kelly and rapper 21 Savage before Amber had another son with Def Jam record exec Alexander Edwards. Amber now says she’s decided to stay single!

Russell Brand and Katy Perry

Katy met Russell when they had to make out for a scene in Get Him to the Greek. Next, she wooed him by throwing a bottle of water at his head during the 2009 VMA Awards. They married the following year in a Hindu ceremony in India. Their marriage ran hot but then cold, but they divorced after 14 months.

Russell Brand and Katy Perry

Russell didn’t need to marry for money because he was already a successful comedian, actor, author, and TV personality in his own right. That said, he’s rumored to have walked away with $20 million tucked in the back pocket of his skinny black jeans.

Elin Nordegren and Tiger Woods

Tiger Woods met stunning Swedish au pair Elin Nordegren in 2001. They married in 2004 and had two children together. But behind the scenes, squeaky-clean Tiger was actually having several affairs. Elin divorced him and received between $100 million and $110 million in the divorce settlement.

Elin Nordegren and Tiger Woods

The golfer also had to pay $20,000 in monthly child support. Rumors whirled suggesting Elin was prepared to reconcile with Tiger if the money was right… she’d receive $350 million if he never strayed from the green again!

Eric Johnson and Jessica Simpson

Unlike most of our entries, this couple is still together and very much in love. Former NFL player Eric Johnson married singer, actress, entrepreneur, and philanthropist Jessica Simpson in 2014. The San Francisco 49ers and New Orleans Saints tight end only played a handful of seasons — meaning his wife Jessica is the breadwinner for their three kids.

Eric Johnson and Jessica Simpson

Jessica is thought to be worth $200 million, and the pair live in an $11.5 million Californian mansion formerly owned by Ozzy and Sharon Osbourne.

Peggy Hopkins Joyce and Various Millionaires

Who wants to be a millionaire? Peggy Hopkins, that’s for sure! The actress and socialite married not one but six millionaires and had numerous affairs with other wealthy men. In 1908, she ran away with a vaudevillian bicyclist aged 15 and married millionaire Everett Archer Jr. when she was 17. The marriage was annulled when Archer discovered her real age.

Peggy Hopkins Joyce and Various Millionaires

Next, Peggy married lawyer Sherburne Hopkins, millionaire lumberman J. Stanley Joyce, Swedish Count Gösta Mörner, engineer Anthony Easton, and retired banker Andrew C. Meyer. She certainly struck gold!

Courtney Love and Kurt Cobain

Even Courtney Love admits to being a gold digger, proudly stating she’s only interested in rich guys. The Hole singer started dating doomed Nirvana frontman and tortured soul Kurt Cobain in 1991. They married on Waikiki Beach in Honolulu, Hawaii — and their daughter, Frances Bean, was born in August 1992.

Courtney Love and Kurt Cobain

Sadly, Kurt took his own life in April 1994, and various conspiracy theories abounded that Courtney was allegedly responsible for his passing. Love inherited an estimated $50 million. At least Kurt married for Love!

Rick Salomon and Pamela Anderson

After marrying and divorcing voice actress Elizabeth Daily, professional poker player Rick Salomon married Beverly Hills 90210 star Shannen Doherty. But after nine months, Shannen had the marriage annulled, citing Rick as an absent husband because of his excessive partying.

Rick Salomon and Pamela Anderson

His next business venture saw a private video featuring himself and Paris Hilton leak online, and he acquired the rights to make money. Finally, he married and divorced Pamela Anderson twice (she cited fraud the first time), and now they want to get married for a third time. Some people never learn!

Anna Nicole Smith and J. Howard Marshall

This is one of the most controversial marriages on this list. In 1994, when she was 26, Anna Nicole Smith married 89-year-old billionaire business tycoon J. Howard Marshall. Their marriage lasted 14 months until he passed away.

Anna Nicole Smith and J. Howard Marshall

But, Anna didn’t get her paws on his money as he did not include Anna Nicole in his will. A bitter legal fight began between Anna Nicole and Marshall’s children, but she was awarded $474 million, later reduced to $88 million. Sadly, the former Playboy model took her own life in 2007.

Matt Rutler and Christina Aguilera

In 2010, Christina Aguilera left her husband and the father of her son, Jordan Bratman, to get together with Matt Rutler. Xtina and Matt got engaged in 2014 but are yet to get married. They have a daughter together named Summer Rain.

Matt Rutler and Christina Aguilera

While Christina has been a world-famous singer for quite a few years now, Matt has worked as a production assistant and occasional actor — plus he plays guitar for the band Nate Mott. While some labeled Matt a gold digger, who wouldn’t want to be with a pop star worth $160 million?

Rachel Hunter and Rod Stewart

In 1990, Scottish musician Rod Stewart met stunning New Zealand model Rachel Hunter in a Los Angeles club. Three months later, they were married. This was despite numerous warnings from friends and family that the 21-year-old was after his millions.

Rachel Hunter and Rod Stewart

Since Rachel was a successful model in her own right, Stewart convinced himself her heart was pure. After nine years and two children, Rachel filed for divorce and won a $65 million settlement.

MacKenzie Scott and Jeff Bezos

When Amazon founder Jeff Bezos’ wife, MacKenzie Scott, left him, he was the world’s richest man. When the divorce was finalized in 2019, MacKenzie walked away with a staggering $38.3 billion in Amazon shares. The breakup was amicable, and they even exchanged jovial messages on Twitter.

MacKenzie Scott and Jeff Bezos

But before you call MacKenzie a gold digger, she’s seemingly determined to give all her money to charity. So far, she’s donated over $14 billion to 1,600 charitable foundations and non-profits. Way to go, girl!

Heather Mills and Paul McCartney

Paul McCartney and Heather Mills first came together in 1999. Beatles fans asked if Sir Paul was born “Yesterday”, but he married her in 2002. A year later, the happy couple welcomed Beatrice Milly McCartney. Fast forward three years and a bitter divorce saw Heather claim she was Paul’s business partner as she tried to extort money from him.

Heather Mills and Paul McCartney

The judge called Mills “volatile and explosive” but awarded her $48.6 million anyway. Hearing the judgment, Heather poured a jug of water over McCartney’s lawyer in the courtroom!

Guy Ritchie and Madonna

Madonna and British film director Guy Ritchie married in a fairytale wedding at a Scottish Castle in 2000. They lived like tweed-clad English lords in their English country estate, had a son Rocco, and adopted David from Malawi but split in 2008.

Guy Ritchie and Madonna

Guy snatched between $76 million and $92 million in the divorce settlement plus the couple’s $30 million Wiltshire estate and their London pub. Gossip columnist Perez Hilton once wrote that Ritchie never spent a penny while married to the Queen of Pop and totally lived off her money.

Marion Davies and William Randolph Hearst

Marion Davies was the original gold digger, while William Randolph Hearst was the newspaper magnate who inspired the greatest film ever made — Orson Welles’ Citizen Kane. Just like Charles Foster Kane, Hearst was America’s wealthiest man who fell for a talentless teenage Ziegfeld Follies chorus girl and did everything he could to promote her career.

Marion Davies and William Randolph Hearst

However, Davies was a shameless social climber and was rumored to be having an affair with Charlie Chaplin. Though they never married, when Hearst died in 1951, he left his long-term mistress 200,000 shares in Hearst Corporation stock.

Sarah Ferguson and Prince Andrew

Sarah Ferguson married Prince Andrew in 1986 to become Sarah, Duchess of York. They had two daughters, Princess Beatrice and Princess Eugenie. She claimed they only spent 40 days per year together and filed for divorce after a decade. Sarah claimed she received only $18,000 a year as a divorce settlement.

Sarah Ferguson and Prince Andrew

However, The Sunday Telegraph revealed the royal redhead had received $435,000 in cash — plus $622,00 to buy a new house for her and the children, and millions via a monthly allowance.

Blac Chyna and Rob Kardashian

Model, socialite, and former erotic dancer Angela Renée White, aka Blac Chyna, dated rapper Tyga and they had a son together in 2012. They split when Tyga began dating Kylie Jenner, which led to many social media spats between Chyna and Jenner.

Blac Chyna and Rob Kardashian

But Chyna got her revenge when she started dating Jenner’s half-brother, Rob Kardashian, in 2016. Chyna and Rob became engaged and had a daughter. However, six months after Dream was born, they had a nasty breakup. She took Rob to court for $20,000 monthly child support.

Chris Judd and Jennifer Lopez

Jennifer Lopez has a thing about marrying her backup dancers. Her second husband was dancer and choreographer Chris Judd. Their marriage lasted 16 months before they sought a divorce. The settlement hit J.Lo hard, and she was ordered to pay Judd $14 million. That works out at nearly a million dollars per month.

Chris Judd and Jennifer Lopez

Not a bad investment! It certainly beats the national minimum wage, right? After divorcing Chris Judd, Jenny from the Block dated Ben Affleck. She should have stayed as Bennifer, because…

Casper Smart and Jennifer Lopez

After being married to singer Marc Antony for 10 years, J.Lo met another backup dancer, Casper Smart. They dated on and off for five years but finally split in 2016.

Casper Smart and Jennifer Lopez

Casper was 18 years younger than Jen, and there was a rumor she got so bored with paying for him all the time that she gave him a $10,000-a-week stipend. Next, J.Lo married New York Yankee player Alex Rodriguez before marrying Ben Affleck.

Raffaello Follieri and Anne Hathaway

Interstellar actress Anne Hathaway started dating Raffaello Follieri in 2004. The Italian real estate developer showered her with gifts like diamond earrings, an 18-carat emerald, a pearl Cartier necklace, and European holidays on yachts — but where was he getting his money from?

Raffaello Follieri and Anne Hathaway

Well, in 2008, Follieri was arrested for fraud, conspiracy, and money laundering for his part in the Vati-Con Scandal, which misappropriated a $50 million investment from Bill Clinton. He served four years in jail and was deported back to Italy, where he set up a global oil and energy company.

Gabriel Aubry and Halle Berry

In Halle Berry’s second most catastrophic mistake after Catwoman, she married French-Canadian model Gabriel Aubry. They had a daughter Nahla in 2008, but the relationship soon soured, and a bitter custody battle ensued. They were both awarded joint custody of Nahla, however…

Gabriel Aubry and Halle Berry

As Halle was worth more, a Superior Court ruling made her pay Aubry $16,000 child support a month — even though he only looks after his daughter half the time — plus a $115,000 retroactive payment and $300,000 for Aubry’s attorney fees.

Kevin Federline and Britney Spears

Britney Spears’ 2004 marriage to Kevin Federline’s raised some eyebrows because somehow a “talentless backup dancer” had managed to get with the biggest pop star on the planet. He was labeled a gold digger as he left his pregnant wife to get with Britney.

Kevin Federline and Britney Spears

They had two sons together, but Britney filed for divorce. Federline won sole physical custody of his children, and after a long and acrimonious court battle, K-Fed secured contracts and $20 thousand per month in child support.

Yoko Ono and John Lennon

While one sound engineer says The Beatles split because of an argument over Englishmen’s best friends — Digestive biscuits — some fans say Yoko Ono was behind their downfall. John Lennon certainly did change after meeting the Japanese artist and photographer.

Yoko Ono and John Lennon

Many fans believed she had ulterior motives, and The Beatles broke up within a year of their marriage. Mark Chapman took John Lennon’s life in December 1980, and Yoko inherited most of her husband’s estate. Over the decades, John’s legacy is considered to be worth $700 million.

Tameka Raymond and Usher

When R&B singer Usher got together with his stylist, Tameka Raymond, the world and his wife said she ain’t nothing but a gold digger. Including Usher’s mom, who sabotaged their first wedding attempt and missed their second!

Tameka Raymond and Usher

They were married for two years, while Usher paid for her lavish lifestyle. But, he kicked her out for squatting in his Georgia mansion for years. Paraphrasing Jane Eyre, Tameka insisted, “The truth is, I really, really loved my husband […] It wasn’t gold-digging. I took a pay cut when I married him.”

Amy Irving and Steven Spielberg

Academy Award winner Amy Irving almost played Marion Ravenwood in Raiders of the Lost Ark but lost the role after splitting up with her boyfriend, Steven Spielberg. But just like Marion and Indy, the two rekindled their love and eventually tied the knot in 1985.

Amy Irving and Steven Spielberg

The marriage lasted just four years before she went after the lion’s share of his money. After a long and arduous dispute, a California judge ignored the couple’s prenuptial agreement, which had been scribbled on a napkin, and awarded Amy Irving $100 million.

Meghan Markle and Prince Harry

Meghan Markle gave up her $50,000 per episode role on the American TV legal drama Suits to marry into the British Royal Family. In 2018, she married Prince Harry to become Meghan, Duchess of Sussex. But, while Meghan now has royal blue blood and more money than she’d make in a dozen lifetimes as an actress, it’s not been smooth sailing…

Meghan Markle and Prince Harry

Meghan and Harry half walked away — half been pushed away from the Royal Family, and their relationship has divided half the world. They’re still together and very much in love… for now.

Oksana Grigorieva and Mel Gibson

Russian beauty Oksana Grigorieva had a thing for sugar daddies. In 1989, she married Russian lawyer Igor Baranov for three months. After marrying British artist Nicholas Rowland, she dated James Bond actor Timothy Dalton for eight years. Then she dated Mel Gibson, who should have known better after his ex-wife Robyn Moore Gibson held him to Ransom for $425 million.

Oksana Grigorieva and Mel Gibson

Together, they had a daughter, Lucia, but Oksana got a restraining order after claiming Gibson had struck her. After they split, Grigorieva turned down a $15 million settlement and ended up with just $750,000 and a house.

Holly Madison and Hugh Hefner

Facing massive debts and on the verge of homelessness, Holly Madison moved into the Playboy Mansion in August 2001. She became one of Hef’s girlfriends for the next seven years and — enticed by his millions — hoped to marry the aging publishing mogul.

Holly Madison and Hugh Hefner

But it didn’t work out that way, as Hefner coercively controlled Holly, enforcing a curfew, controlling her finances, and refusing to marry her. She said their relationship was like having Stockholm Syndrome and later added, “I’m never dating anybody again. I don’t need a man.” Who can blame her? Hefner passed away in 2017.

Andrew Robinson Stoney and Mary Eleanor Bowes

Countess of Strathmore and Kinghorne, Mary Eleanor Bowes, was an 18th Century British reporter, ancestor of the late Queen Elizabeth II, and heiress to unimaginable wealth. After her first husband passed away, a charming adventurer and charlatan named Andrew Robinson Stoney seduced her.

Andrew Robinson Stoney and Mary Eleanor Bowes

After pretending to be mortally wounded in a duel while defending her honor (over an article he wrote!), Stoney manipulated her into marrying him and was led down the aisle on a stretcher. He went on to terribly mistreat Mary and steal most of her money.

Dean McDermott and Tori Spelling

Tori Spelling is an actress from American TV royalty. Her dad produced some of the most successful shows in history — including Charlie’s Angels, Dynasty, and Beverly Hills, 90210. In 2005, Tori got together with struggling actor Dean McDermott despite the fact they’d both been married for 10 years.

Dean McDermott and Tori Spelling

Tori married Dean in May 2006, and a month later, her dad passed away, leaving $500 million in his will. They had five children together, and Dean famously cheated on Tori in 2013.

David Furnish and Elton John

Legendary English rocker Elton John and Canadian filmmaker and advertising exec David Furnish met at a mutual friend’s dinner party in 1993. After dating for 12 years, they entered a civil partnership and had two sons, Zachary and Elijah, via a surrogate.

David Furnish and Elton John

In 2014, they officially tied the knot. While David didn’t marry for money, he’s certainly lived a charmed life as Elton’s husband. Sir Elton gives most of his money to the Elton John AIDS Foundation, which has raised $600 million.

Kimora Lee Simmons and Russell Simmons

Def-Jam record label owner Russell Simmons married Kimora Lee Simmons ​​in 1989. They had two children, and the model is said to have lived a lavish lifestyle during the marriage. They divorced after a decade, but Kimora has still lived a life of luxury thanks to the mega divorce settlement.

Kimora Lee Simmons and Russell Simmons

She received $40,000 monthly, and Russell had to buy her a new car every three years. If that wasn’t bad enough, he also had to transfer the reins of his clothing line Phat Farm to his former wife.

Bill and Melinda Gates

Bill Gates became one of the richest men in the world through his company Microsoft. So, when his wife, Melinda, left him over his friendship with Jeffrey Epstein, Bill lost a hefty chunk of his estimated $150 billion. While their divorce settlement terms were not publicly disclosed, some sources say they split the fortune.

Bill and Melinda Gates

Others say Melinda walked away with two billion dollars in one of the largest divorce settlements in history. The ex-Microsoft multimedia product developer is now one of the world’s most generous philanthropists.

Antony Armstrong-Jones and Princess Margaret

Charming but struggling Welsh photographer Antony Armstrong-Jones turned Queen Elizabeth II’s sister Princess Margaret into a right royal rebel. They’d dance the night away and ride motorbikes before marrying in 1960 — the first time a British royal wed a commoner in four centuries.

Antony Armstrong-Jones and Princess Margaret

As seen in Netflix’s The Crown, Antony, Lord Snowdon conducted extramarital affairs and fathered an illegitimate daughter shortly before marrying Princess Margaret. The couple eventually divorced in 1978. It’s not sure if he received a divorce settlement, but he lived in luxury until he passed away in 2017.

Diane Alexander and Lionel Richie

Successful fashion designer Diane Richie is best known for her relationship with former Commodore and 1980s pop artist Lionel Richie. They first said “Hello” when Diane Alexander was his backup dancer while still married to his first wife, Brenda Harvey. Following a bitter divorce, Richie married Diane in 1995.

Diane Alexander and Lionel Richie

Their 2004 divorce wasn’t “Easy” for Lionel, as it cost him a cool $20 million. Lionel made it once, twice, three times a lady when he got together with Swiss model Lisa Parigi, who’s almost 40 years his junior.

David Gest and Liza Minnelli

Would you believe it was matchmaker Michael Jackson who first introduced Liza Minnelli and David Gest? All went well initially, and the odd couple married in 2002. However, their marriage lasted just 16 months, followed by one of the most insane and cruel divorce cases in Hollywood history.

David Gest and Liza Minnelli

During the three-and-a-half-year case, Gest said Minnelli was dependent on ​​adult beverages, accused her of trying to take his life, and sued her for $10 million. The judge threw his suit out of the courtroom as none of it was provable.

Alma Mahler Werfel and Her Many Husbands

Born in 1879, Alma Mahler was an Austrian composer and socialite who always sought her muse in the form of a rich sugar daddy. Obsessed with fame and fortune, she shared her first kiss with Austrian artist Gustav Klimt and became Austrian composer Alexander von Zemlinsky’s lover.

Alma Mahler Werfel and Her Many Husbands

Alma married fellow composer Gustav Mahler, who was 20 years her senior. Next up was the founder of the Bauhaus art school, Walter Gropius. Finally, she married writer Franz Werfel but had affairs — including with artist Oskar Kokoschka, who creepily made a life-sized Alma doll!

V. Stiviano and Donald Sterling

When American businessman and LA Clippers team owner Donald Sterling Stiviano took V. Stiviano — aka Maria Vanessa Perez — as a mistress, he had no idea what he’d signed up for. He showered her with luxurious gifts, including a $2.6 million home, a Ferrari, two Bentleys, a Range Rover, and stacks of cash.

V. Stiviano and Donald Sterling

However, she was forced to return it all when Sterling’s wife took the matter to court after Stiviano released recordings of Sterling making derogatory remarks about Magic Johnson.

Orianne Cevey and Phil Collins

In 1999, ex-Genesis singer, drummer, and megastar Phil Collins married his 21-year-old Swiss translator, Orianne Cevey. But it wasn’t just another day in paradise for the singer when they split seven years later after having two sons.

Orianne Cevey and Phil Collins

Collins paid $31 million to Cevey in the most expensive British celebrity divorce settlement at the time. In more recent years, a judge threw out Cevey’s case when she sued Collins, saying he promised her a further $20 million from the sale of their home.

Arlene Silver and Dick Van Dyke

In 2012, at the age of 86, actor, singer, comedian, dancer, writer, and all-around legend Dick Van Dyke married Arlene Silver. Their relationship was the talk of the town because she was a makeup artist and 46 years his junior.

Arlene Silver and Dick Van Dyke

Some say Arlene was after Dick’s estimated $50 million fortune, but they seem very much in love. At the time of writing, Dick is approaching his centenary and, despite some health issues, is still going strong, singing and dancing.

René Elizondo Jr. and Janet Jackson

Dancer, songwriter, and director René Elizondo Jr. met Janet Jackson while working as a backup dancer for La Toya Jackson in 1986. They dated and eventually married in 1991. After nine years, they divorced, whereupon Rene received $10 million in the divorce settlement.

René Elizondo Jr. and Janet Jackson

But Janet later took a leaf out of René’s book, becoming the wife of Qatari billionaire businessman Wissam Al Mana between 2014 and 2017. Still, with an estimated net worth of $180 million, no one can ever accuse Janet Jackson of being a gold digger!

Helg Sgarbi and Suzanne Klatten

Beware of charming, confident people who sweep you off your feet because they’re probably narcissists. Helg Sgarbi was one such vampire. A notorious blackmailer, the Swiss national amassed his fortune by dating and blackmailing high-profile European women.

Helg Sgarbi and Suzanne Klatten

His most famous victim was Germany’s richest woman, heiress Suzanne Klatten who’s said to be worth a whopping $23.4 billion. In 2007, Helg Sgarbi and an accomplice threatened to release intimate videos of Klatten filmed with hidden cameras. He and his accomplice were caught and sent to jail!

Lamar “Hot Sauce” McDow and Marie Holmes

It’s everyone’s dream to win the lottery, right? Well, in February 2015, an American woman named Marie Holmes won $188 million in the Powerball Lottery. So, how do you think she spends her money? Jet-setting around the world and lounging on luxury yachts?

Lamar “Hot Sauce” McDow and Marie Holmes

Nope, Marie seems to spend most of her money bailing her loser boyfriend Lamar “Hot Sauce” McDow out of jail. Lamar has been arrested multiple times for serious offenses, and Marie has spent a mind-boggling $21 million bailing him out!

The Most Beautiful And Inspiring Interracial Couples In Hollywood

In today’s society, we have come a long way in accepting and respecting interracial marriages and pairings, resulting in the breakdown of racial barriers, making everyone appear as equals.

Prince Harry & Meghan Markle

In 2016, Prince Harry made headlines by dating stunning ‘Suits’ actress Meghan Markle. The two were reported to have met at private members club Soho House in London and have been a tabloid favorite ever since.

Riker’s demands did not end there as she wanted to revert to her maiden name, have spousal support and have Jackson pay her attorney’s fees.
