Reuters reports that the much publicized Harold Hamm divorce case is one of the most dramatic in U.S. history. Hamm allegedly cheated on his wife, and the court deliberated over whether to order her to hand over hidden camera footage and audio she made of her husband.
The U.S. oil tycoon’s fortune is estimated to be in excess of $11 billion. The couple does not have a prenuptial agreement, and as such, this is likely to be one of the most expensive divorce settlements in history.
Both parties tried to keep details of the divorce out of the public eye, but court documents indicate that there is no prenuptial agreement to protect Hamm’s sizeable assets. A prenup typically outlines the division of assets, but because it does not exist, Hamm’s wife is claiming a significant portion of his wealth.
At the same time, court documents reveal that the couple has previously contested custody of their children. Back in 1998, Hamm attempted to gain custody of their two children, arguing that his wife was not psychologically sound to care for them.
Experts close to the case suggest that a settlement could cost Hamm as much as $3 billion, which is more than double the previous record-setting settlement between Rupert Murdoch and his ex-wife Anna in 1999.
