British media eye Roman Abramovich’s divorce

British media eye Roman Abramovich’s divorce
The British media is speculating over the conditions of the separation of Russian billionaire Roman Abramovich. The reports on how much did Mr Abramovich’s ex-wife Irina get vary greatly.

The Daily Express quotes an insider in the billionaire's entourage as saying his ex-wife could have received as much as $US 11.5 BLN. That includes at least four of Mr Abramovich's luxury homes in Britain, a castle in France and access to the Pelorus superyacht.

But the Independent says Irina got 20 times less – a mere $US 58 MLN.

The divorce took place in Russian and under Russian law. The details of the settlement remain private.
