His ex, a German princess (!), will receive $80 million, according to the Associated Press. The two married in 1998.
The pair has been separated venture capitalist focusing on third world poverty issues, is the head of a massive development conglomerate, known as Aga Khan Development Network. His net worth, according to Forbes estimate, is $800 million. Yep. His ex is getting 10 percent of his total net worth. Yikes.
But while Aga Khan’s settlement sets his country’s record, it doesn’t even come close to the costliest of all time: Rupert Murdoch still holds that dubious honor, after giving his ex-wife $1.7 billion during his 1999 divorce.
