Sean Penn’s Divorce Costs Him $61 Million

Celebrity divorces are expensive, just ask Sean Penn. According to the actor’s recent interviews, while doing charity work in earthquake-ravaged Haiti, he spoke about losing half of his $123 million fortune to divorce his actress wife Robin Wright. Wright taking half means Penn split $61.5 million in their divorce settlement.

Penn took a shot at his ex-wife, stating he had to work as he split one-half of everything he owned. This is a common scene for couples trying to divorce in California, as no pre-nup means all belongings and finances are 50/50 joint property. Wright and Penn divorced last year, after trying to reconcile three different times before finally agreeing to go their separate ways. The couple has been married for 14 years, even though their relationship showed as stormy in the press.

Besides being so truthful about his divorce proceedings, Penn told the media that he plans to make Haiti his home for “the rest of his life.” Penn has dedicated himself to the area and trying to rebuild. He has invested personal time and money, and built a team of volunteers and professionals.

Penn and Wright share child custody of their 17-year-old son, Hopper Jack, and they have a 19-year-old daughter, Dylan.
