If you think the $100 million Elin Nordegren received as part of her divorce settlement was a lot of money, you won't believe how much some of these other celebrity divorces cost.
It’s been great to see Elin Nordegren has finally been moving on since her 2010 split with golf pro Tiger Woods. Nordegren has recently been dating coal magnate Chris Cline, although we know that it’s not for his money. Nordegren received around $100 million following her split from Tiger Woods, one of the most expensive divorce settlements of all time.

It may sound like a lot of money, but compared to some of these celebrity divorces, Nordegren was ripped off.

Jordan will become a father for the fourth time following the announcement and he isn't alone in the aged father game
Michael Jordan is looking forward to becoming a dad for what will be the fourth time, with his much-younger wife Yvette Prieto, it was reported earlier this week. First reported by www.terezowens.com, the pregnancy comes some months after the pair tied the knot in April this year, after five years of dating,and whilst Jordan might be in his 50's now, this could very well be the founding of another family for the NBA legend.
Michael and Yvette might not be finished in the baby-making-department yet
Jordan isn't alone becoming a father well into middle age, as the celebrity world is full of older fathers. Some, like Jordan, have gone on to start new families in their advanced years following a divorce or loss of partner (or maybe even a scandal of some sort), whilst others like to leave it late before finally settling down and having offspring. Here, we look at five older gentlemen who waited until after their 50th birthday before having children.
At 50, Michael Jordan has announced that he is to be a dad for the fourth time!
While Michael Jordan’s sports career is behind him, he is entering a whole new stage of life, as the baller and his wife Yvette Prieto have announced that they are expecting their first child. This is according to People, which got the low down straight from Jordan’s reps. 50-year-old Jordan and Prieto, a Cuban American model met in 2008 in Miami, but only tied the knot this year at a Palm Beach ceremony, attended by 500 of Jordan and Prieto’s closest friends and relatives – you know, an intimate affair.
Hundreds attended Jordan and Prieto's wedding ceremony.
But the reception was even more impressive, with 1,500 guests pouring into a nearby golf couse community in Jupiter, where Jordan owns a 38,000-square-foot home. Among the attendees were celebrities like Usher and the now infamous Robin Thicke. They’ve been planning for months and months,” a source told PEOPLE of the couple’s all-out wedding. “He wanted to give Yvette everything she’s ever wanted.”

Michael Jordan has applied for a marriage license to wed his girlfriend of over 5 years, Yvette Prieto.
For a man who had to fork out over $150m in a divorce settlement just 7 years ago, the choice to get married again must be one Michael Jordan really, really, really committed to. And it appears that's precisely his plan as a clerk at Palm Beach County Court House confirmed after he came into the office to buy a marriage license.
His fiancee is the beautiful Cuban-American model, 33 year old Yvette Prieto who has modelled for Alexander Wang among others. She and Jordan have been dating since 2008 and moved in together in 2009. They have been engaged since 2011 but now that they have a marriage license it appears that the wedding really is going to go ahead.
While congratulations are in order for the happy couple it isn't all rainbows and sunshine for the ex-professional basketballer who now owns the Charlotte Bobcats. He's also recently been involved in a court proceeding about the paternity of the 16 year old son of a woman named Pamela Y. Smith. As the Daily Mail report he has requested the court to dismiss the case due to it being a "shameless, bad faith attempt to abuse the legal system." His spokesperson added "Public records show that the paternity of the child was established in a prior case in this same court many years ago and that Michael Jordan is not the father."
But 16 year-old insists he's the NBA legend's son
Michael Jordan has moved as swiftly as he ever did on the basketball court to ask a Georgia court to dismiss a lawsuit against him that claims he’s the father of 48 year-old Pamela Y. Smith’s son.
The case has emerged in the last couple of days, that Smith is claiming Jordan is the father of her 16 year-old child following an apparent affair back in the 90’s – Jordan’s playing pomp. In more than one way, clearly. However, Jordan has written to the Fulton County court to claim that he is not the child’s father, and has in fact filed a counterclaim against Smith for what he believes are false claims made against him, according to Fox News. In the claim, Jordan says that the identity of the child’s father has already been established thanks to divorce proceedings between Smith and her ex-husband, he has also added that the claim is "shameless, bad faith attempt to abuse the legal system."

With Super Bowl 47 taking place this weekend, not all eyes are going to be on the action that's taking place on the field. As we all know by now, advertising departments Statewide often use the prime time television slots during the commercial breaks to air some of their funniest, most innovative stuff. The highly sought after slots go for millions, such is the guaranteed size of the audience who'll be tuning in to the game, which means that the companies need to give it everything they've got in order to lure in the customers. Here at Contactmusic, we thought we'd have a look over the history of the Super Bowl ad, and pick out ten of favorites of all time...
10. Monster.com – When I Grow Up (1999)
A slightly sad commercial that sees children telling us their dreams for when they grow up, except those dreams turn out to be dead-end jobs and positions of employment that they don’t want to do. Why? Because they didn’t go through Monster.com and potentially get the job they always DID want of course.
Michael Jordan’s got himself into a spot of bother. It’s not exactly up there on the biggest sporting scandals of all time but he’s managed to get himself banned from a golf course on Miami Beach. ‘What for!?’ We hear you cry… Outlandish behaviour? Being under the influence? Er… not quite, unfortunately. He was wearing… wait for it… the… drum roll, please… wrong shorts! He was wearing the wrong kind of shorts! Okay, so that wasn’t enough, alone, to get him banned. But he refused to change them. Oh yeah. He refused to change his shorts. And he got banned from the golf course.
Sorry folks, it’s hardly the equivalent of Sam Hurd getting nailed by the feds for possession of 10kg of drugs but it’s the best we’ve got here, okay? According to The Hollywood Gossip, Jordan was playing with a member at La Gorce Country Club on Miami Beach, when he defied the dress code by wearing cargo pants (i.e. pants with multiple pockets). Now, he might be Michael Jordan, one of the greatest basketball players of all time, whose iconic image has become synonymous with tales of sporting success and overpriced Nike footwear but that, it would seem, is not enough to make him exempt from a simple golfing dress code. No, sir.
Jordan refused to obey the strict code and found himself banned. That’s right, Michael Jordan. You shall never darken the door of the La Gorce Country Club again. Let that be a lesson to you.
That being said, I am probably not the most impartial person to watch Space Jam, the 1996 outing in which Jordan helps the beloved Looney Tunes gang compete in an interplanetary basketball game. However, any die-hard Bulls fan can agree with any Knicks fan on this one fact: Jordan is a terrible actor
