Ford, Costner And Spielberg Make Forbes' Top 10 Divorce List
Movie stars HARRISON FORD, KEVIN COSTNER and director STEVEN SPIELBERG have been named in US magazine Forbes' top 10 most costly divorce settlements in Hollywood.
Spielberg, who divorced first wife Amy Irving in 1989 at a cost of $100 million (GBP51.3 million), was only beaten to the top of the poll by basketball legend Michael Jordan and singer Neil Diamond, at numbers one and two respectively.
Forbes speculates Jordan's pending divorce from his wife of 18 years, Juanita Vanoy, will set the former NBA star back by more than $150 million (GBP76.9 million) - the cost of Diamond's failed 1969 marriage to Marcia Murphey.
Ford ranks at number four after having paid an estimated $85 million (GBP43.6 million) to first wife Melissa Mathison, while Costner's settlement with wife of 16 years, Cindy Silva in 1994, earned him fifth place.
Other stars whose love splits have made it into the top 10 include: former Beatles singer Sir Paul MCCartney and his impending divorce from Heather Mills; rocker Sir Mick Jagger and Jerry Hall; and Michael Douglas and first wife Diandra.
