"Divorce has its price" and it costs expensive when you're a star. Michael Jordan, Neil Diamond, Steven Spielberg, and Harrison Ford are the obvious examples. A basketball star, Jordan's split from wife of 17 years, Juanita Vanoy Jordan, December last year is the most expensive according to Forbes.com's list of "The 10 Most Expensive Celebrity Divorces."

Diamond, whose 1995 divorce from Marcia Murphey cost him an estimated $150 million, holds second place. Spielberg is the third for his $100 million divorce settlement with first wife Amy Irving. Securing the 4th spot is Ford whose divorce from wife Melissa Mathison cost him an estimated $85 million.

Rounding out the Top 5 is the divorce of Kevin Costner and wife Cindy Silva with an estimated $80 million settlement. Paul McCartney and Heather Mills' pending divorce is the 6th, possibly costs more than $60 million. That of James Cameron and Linda Hamilton is ranked 7th with $50 million, ahead of Michael Douglas and Diandra Luker's which worth for $45 million at No. 8.

Elsewhere on the list is the divorce of Lionel Richie and Diane Alexander which is estimated at $20 million, ranked 9th, while Mick Jagger and Jerry Hall's divorce is the 10th most expensive, with estimated settlement $15 to $25 million.
