Nine-Figure Divorces

Pharma billionaire stewart rahr styles himself “The Number One King of All Fun”. His ex-wife, Carol, might disagree. This winter she filed for divorce, and in May Rahr was forced to pay her a reported $250 million settlement. Now worth $1.3 billion, Rahr, it seems, will hang on to his spot on the Forbes 400 (barely). Here are other divorcés who weren’t so lucky.
