Billionaire hedge fund manager Kenneth Griffin and his wife reach divorce settlement
Wednesday morning, a Cook County Circuit Court administrator announced that a 14-month-old divorce case has finally been settled between billionaire hedge fund manager Ken Griffin and his wife, Anne Dias Griffin. The couple was married since July 2013.
Nairee Hagopian, a clerk for the judge presiding over the case, shared that lawyers and both parties were present in the courthouse on Tuesday afternoon. Both the parties wanted to avoid a public trial that was set to begin on Monday. Therefore, both the parties started settling the matter.
In July 2014, Mr. Griffin filed for divorce petition in Cook County explaining irreconcilable differences with his wife of 11 years who is also a hedge fund manager. Things turned bit bad between the two as a war of words took place between them.
Mr. Griffin is the head of Citadel having a personal fortune of $7 billion. On the other hand, Ms. Dias Griffin has her own hedge fund, Aragon Global Management. When Mr. Griffin filed for the divorce petition then Ms. Dias Griffin said that she was not aware of the move.
To which, Mr. Griffin unveiled about the terms of their prenuptial agreement. As per which, Ms. Dias Griffin had received millions of dollars at the start of the marriage and $1 million for each year of their marriage.
But Ms. Dias Griffin has said that she has been forced to sign the prenuptial agreement. She has claimed that she is now no more allowed to enter family homes in Hawaii, Miami, Colorado and New York. Mr. Griffin and Ms. Dias Griffin will have joint custody of their three children.
