In papers delivered to the parties Monday, May 19, 2014, the Geneva Tribunal of First Instance said the 47-year-old Rybolovlev, a co-owner of the French soccer club AS Monaco, must pay 4,020,555,987.80 Swiss francs ($4,509,375,184.80) to ex-wife Elena Rybolovleva, also 47, of Geneva. The judgment shows that his wife also won two pieces of real estate in the ultra-wealthy area of Geneva known as Cologny, where the couple once lived together, and confirmed her custody of their 13-year-old daughter Anna. They also have an older daughter, Ekaterina, after meeting as university students in Perm, Russia, and marrying there in 1987. The divorce case began in 2008, when Forbes estimated his worth at $12.8 billion. AP
