Nearly anyone in Texas who has watched the news lately has heard about the divorce between oil tycoon Harold Hamm and his now ex-wife. Recently, she was awarded nearly $1 billion -- $995 million -- in the divorce. However, she does not think the settlement was fair and is appealing the decision.
The settlement represents about 6 percent of the couple's fortune. The cash portion of the award is to be paid in installments over the course of years, beginning with a $323 million payment by Dec. 31. Hamm's ex-wife was also given two homes with a total value of approximately $19.7 million.
