“Continental Resources chief executive Harold Hamm, one of America’s wealthiest and most influential businessmen, is embroiled in a contentious divorce that …
Prenup did not even exist back when they got married in the 1960s.
It’s funny how feminists (generally) want to eradicate archaic social norms, except of course for the ones that benefit them. The concept of alimony as well as the equal division of assets (when they were earned independently) presupposes two things: firstly, that a wife is incapable of ever earning a livable wage herself; and secondly, that she must have stayed home and raised the children all of her life. Now THAT should be insulting.
They got married in the 1980’s.
Female billionaire? HAHAHAHAHAHAHA
Yes I know they exist, so chill
This is even more reason not to get married, with the way the marriage and divorce laws are in this country, no man needs to get married. I dont care if you’re worth 10 billion or 10 dollars, don’t ever get married. Its just not worth it. Work hard, travel the world, and enjoy your money. This poor guy should have listened to Tom Leykis.
Probably would. At least in a gender-equal society they would.
Then you are pretty selfish. And you do realize that these people.. the top fat cats, pay less than everyone else, now that is a communist country.
you only say that because you are poor.
I’m calling this now before the reports come in. what’s the over/under on this woman not living to collect that money? I’m not saying the husband would gun her down in the street, but what’s the odds she has a mysterious ‘accident’ before the divorce trial is over? let’s say she takes her yacht out for a little weekend vacation and just disappears?
if the settlement’s a BILLION dollars or more, someone stands a good chance of getting clipped.
I hope for her sake he still loves her.
Dem calls for higher tax rates is a loser argumemt. Instead ppl should question why income from effort (work or self empl) is taxed at higher rates than income from wealth? (interest, divs, cap gains)
who cares? screw them
The guy is literally a piggy bank!
Enough to bring clean drinking water to 550,000,000 people (1/14th of earths population) for the next 20 years.
Dwell on this for a moment.
Good for her.. get your share !!
they r evil… too bad u don’t have enough intelligence to understand that
does Cenk have prenups?
but he could do a lot more.. like all these rich bastards who get their money off the sweat of the workers
I don’t care if they get rich, just as long as they don’t put their money in Swiss bank accounts and the Cayman Islands. All we ask is they pay a fair share, of course that’s too much for some of these greedy pieces of shit.
0:36 “Prenup’s a tough thing.” Not anymore. Nowadays can order one by filling a web form and it costs next to nothing. That guy should have not married, because they didn’t have any kids. I know it is probably blasphemous to live together and not marry nor have kids, but hey — welcome to Europe. The Europeans are already there. No one dares to say bad things to you when you have billions of dollars of liquid assets to spare.
Approximately 0 shits given about this story. The real story is why there aren’t any bankers on those “Richest people” lists. Now that, is interesting.
Well, it’s just abuse to have higher taxes for people who depend on every bit of their income to survive. A billionaire with a higher tax rate probably makes that money back in less than a day.
why do you say that?
you must be a productive member of your society (sarcasm)
You think he could afford a better lawyer.
wft, are they commies?
This isn’t even a first world problem, this is a .0001% problem.
Cenk: “It’s not like you take his money. But can he pay higher taxes? (taking money) Of course!”
hehe i think being rich and having Power is like putting on the Ring from Lotr. it’s nearly impossible to not be tempted it by its powers
Oh man! If she gets the half Bill Burr is gonna FLIP OUT…
did u read any of what i wrote….. i said they should pair there fair share i believe everyone should have to pay the same amount obviously a billionaire pays more than someone on food stamps but the same percentage or what ever. how is that selfish? any talk of them having to pay more just cuz there more well off is ludicrous.
Ok. I’m disagreeing with you guys. If you acquire great wealth through your means you should keep that. I don’t mind higher taxes btw but to say. OMG I hate seeing rich people just sounds crazy.
Should the rich really pay more? now before you guys say OF COURSE. Here me out everyday our tax dollars go to education, social services and the public good. Our tax dollars also go to war, government subsidies etc. Could it possibly be for some rich people that they don’t support these actions of the US government so they find loopholes in the system to pay less. They rather use there wealth for charitable purposes to help society the way they see fit.
Please reply anyone…
He should have thought of his money before cheating I have no simpathy for him
Not really, Bill Gates does awesome things around the world.
Why do men get married is just such a bad decisions.
This is the most pathetic comment I have ever read.
Well, you humans have till 2020 to do something about it.
Because if not, my people will have intervene. And not in a good way. 🙂
and homosexuals beg to get married..
Oooops dumb ass
I…I…I don’t know if I can hold back my tears. How is gonna get by especially with his crushingly high tax rates?
Or you would do just enough good deeds and live the life of ultimate luxury like every one of us would if we were billionaires.
It could have been worse, the wife could have hired a hitman to kill him and she takes all the money
If you’re rich and you’re not running for office there really is no reason to get married.
Like the rest of the rich jews?
I have a question, what if it was the other way around, would the U.S law force a female billionaire to pay the ex-husband that much money?
Gotta get that prenuptial agreement. I don’t understand why people don’t do it.
Never get married. It’s a scam.
