    Sometimes, $975 million really is enough.


    Sue Ann Arnall, the ex-wife of oil tycoon Harold Hamm, has cashed her huge divorce check after claiming earlier this week that the settlement was unfair.


    Hamm built Continental Resources (CLR) from the ground up before leading the development of North Dakota's Bakken oil field. He agreed to pay nearly $1 billion back in November to settle the divorce.

    But Arnall, an economist and lawyer who held executive positions in the company, said she was entitled to more. She filed an appeal, claiming that the fortune was due to both her work and his.

    Hamm's attorney, Craig L. Box, confirmed to CNN that the check has been deposited.

    Damn, maybe we could start a kickstarter for her. I hate seeing women get mistreated like this.

    She was right to say she was entitled to more. Her shithead husband gave her a mere 5% of his fortune after 26 years and no prenup.

    She was also right to take the check and shut up. No one wants to hear a spouse whine about $1B not being enough money. She'll never have to check prices on anything she buys for the rest of her life. If she invests conservatively at 5%, she'll make $50M a year. That's over $4M/month without touching her $1B. Imagine having money work for you to the tune of $4M/month.

    It doesn't say the appeal was dismissed

    Fun Fact - If she invests that $1 billion and gets a conservative 3% yearly return on it that is $30 million a year without having to do anything.

    Still makes me wonder why Stern continues to work, if he has truly grossed about a Billion during his whole career then he should be making millions in interest/dividends every year without even touching his banked money, why bother working any more?

    When there are billionaires that can write a $975 million and bitches that can refuse it as not enough, you don't have to look far to know the game is rigged.

    :jj: I didn't mean to post that here. I was on my phone browsing this place and my daughter texted me about going somewhere with a friend. I meant to reply to her text and instead posted here. I was mad that she didn't reply. What an asshole I am. :facepalm:
