Gold diggerWhenever we see a relationship, there’s a pretty good chance that one side of the relationship just exists because of the money flow. That relationship could stumble any time as the money stops or they find someone better. These are called gold digger relationships. Or say the person with this mentality a gold digger. Playing with someone’s feelings for their money would be the smallest definition of it. Not only normal men/women do this, of course, celebrities aren’t any different from any of us. There have been so many relationships and even marriages that were based on money and were talked about a lot. You could call them Jackpot Relationships if you want.
Below are some of the gold digger celebrities:
1. Oksana Grigorieva (Mel Gibson) – $750,000.
Mel Gibson was married before he was nothing in Hollywood in 1980. After a while when he warned all the fame and money, his wife filed a divorce making a $400 Million payday – the highest in Hollywood history.
2. Kevin Federline (Britney Spears) – $1 million
Kevin Federline was one of those men who managed to catfish Britney Spears. He had pregnant fiancee actress Shar Jackson whom he left for Britney and got married within 9 months and had kids with her.
Then started the custody battle which settled at $1 million and a child support of $20,000 per month. Britney could never move on from that. In 2007 she was taken from her home on a stretcher and hospitalized. Now she’s fine but not looking for love anymore.
3. Sarah Ferguson (Prince Andrew) – $3 million
This was one of the biggest scandals of the 90’s. Sarah Ferguson, also known as the Duchess of York, was willing to go to exploit her marriage to Prince Andrew (the third child of Queen Elizabeth II). By, 1991, the Prince was away for royal duties while the Duchess was busy getting her bed filled with different men. That was caught on media and ended up in a divorce worth $3 million.
The real scandal she did was asking a bribe of £500,000 ($643,000) for giving direct access to Prince Andrew. She was caught doing that and then later, her invite to the latest Royal wedding was suspended.
4. Cris Judd (Jennifer Lopez) – $10 million
Jennifer Lopez met her choreographer husband Cris Judd who could never even be close the $300 million wealth of her. Cris Judd starred in some of Jennifer’s videos and that was the time when she fell for her.
They married in 2001 and this was another failed gold digger marriage where Cris got $20 million for a failed marriage which he planned or whatever the circumstances might be.
5. Ivana Trump (Donald Trump) – $25 million
Ivana Zelníčková moved from Czechoslovakia to Canada in 1973. She claimed to be a former Olympian but was later discovered that she wasn’t one, not even close to a sportsperson. She got to meet Donald Trump with the help of that lie.
They were later married in a lavish ceremony and had three kids named Donald Jr, Ivanka, and Eric Trump. A news came in 1990 that stated Donald Trump wanted 5 kids and for every kid, he gave Ivana $250,000 “bonus.” Their marriage lasted 14 years even after these things.
Ivana received a reported $14 million cash settlement, an apartment at Trump Plaza, the family’s 45-room Connecticut estate, and access to Mar-a-Lago, the family home in Palm Beach, Florida, that also serves as a private club for the Palm Beach elite so she could continue her royal lifestyle. This could be one of the worst decisions taken by Trump, the first being running for President and winning along.
