Divorce can be an emotional and stressful time for any couple. People react in different ways; some are able to remain level-headed, others break down - and some go crazy and saw their houses in half. Here is a rundown of some of the strangest divorce stories that have received worldwide publicity over recent years... 1. Mo money, Mo marriage Acrimonious divorces can cause considerable financial strain. Media mogul Rupert Murdoch was ordered to pay one of the largest ever divorce settlements when he was told by the court to pay £1.1 billion pounds to his former wife. However, this clearly didn’t give him cold feet as he married again just 17 days later! 2. Permission to Party, your highness Even the royal family has experienced the strain of divorce. Charles and Diana’s divorce dealt with property, money and royal titles. Perhaps one of the more awkward agreements that had to be entered into was Diana having to ask the Queen’s permission if she wanted to entertain guests at St James’ palace. 3. Old flames After 60 diamond years together you’d think that you’ve found the partner you will spend your last days with. This was not the case in Germany, when 81-year-old Georg Meister found himself out of the family home and facing a divorce after being caught having an affair with a colleague. Lucky for him he didn’t have far to walk as his mistress lived two houses away from his family home. 4. Got to give it up There’s always the love song that reminds you of your ex. Marvin Gaye, however, took this to another level. W hen he couldn’t afford to pay the court fees for his divorce, Marvin assigned all the royalties from his ‘Here, my dear’ album to his ex-wife as part of the divorce settlement.
