Oil tycoon Harold Hamm’s former wife Sue Ann Hamm will receive close to a $1 billion settlement from a divorce judgment, an article on Reuters stated November 10.
In a court ruling, the 68-year-old Continental Resources founder and CEO will shell out a total of $995.5 million to Sue Ann Hamm, 58. Harold will have to pay Sue a third of the money upfront and then monthly installments of $7 million to fulfill the bulk of the settlement. In Oklahoma each partner is entitled to an equal share of the “enhancement of wealth” during the duration of the couple’s marriage. When Harold and Sue got married in the late ’80s they did not establish a prenuptial agreement. The Hamm’s divorce is considered to be one of the biggest recorded divorce settlements.
