Oil tycoon Harold Hamm’s former wife Sue Ann recently did not accept the divorce check settlement amounting to $975 million, claiming she jointly built the company and therefore deserves a larger cut, PIX 11 reported on January 7.
The founder of Continental Resources last November proposed the settlement amount, however, Sue Ann appealed claiming that their wealth was a result of their partnership in growing the company. Sue Ann was an attorney, economist, and a former executive at the oil company. Harold now is also appealing the settlement claiming that his company and assets were badly affected by the sudden decrease of oil prices. The former couple, who was married for over two and a half decades, did not have a prenuptial agreement.
