Money isn’t everything — unless it’s $18 billion dollars. That’s the amount of cash the soon-to-be ex-wife of billionaire oil executive Harold Hamm expects to win in a divorce settlement.
CNBC reports that Sue Ann Arnall was awarded $974.8 million in divorce settlement by an Oklahoma County judge. Hamm, an executive for oil driller Continental Resources, hastily wrote out a check for $974.8 million and delivered it by courier to Arnell’s lawyer’s.
But Arnell returned the check because it lacked enough zeros.
According to CNBC, Arnall refused the check because she is appealing the judge’s decision on the grounds that $974 million is simply not enough cash for her champagne and caviar tastes. She expects to rake in $18 billion in an appeal. Anything less than $18 billion is apparently chump change to her.
Hamm’s lawyer, Michael Burrage, explained Arnell’s position in an emailed statement to CNBC.
“Ms. Arnall, through her counsel, stated that they were rejecting the … payment because Ms. Arnall did not want to risk the dismissal of her appeal by acceptance of the benefits,” Burrage wrote.
