Neil Diamond

#3 Neil Diamond and Marcia Murphey
Iconic singer Neil Diamond has broken records when it comes to concert attendance over the years, but he broke a different kind of record in 1994 when he divorced second wife Marcia Murphey after 25 years of marriage, citing "irreconcilable differences." Murphey, who had two sons with Diamond, was awarded a $150-million settlement after petitioning for half of her estranged husband’s fortune. Despite rumors of Diamond’s infidelities, the case remained surprisingly unhostile and Diamond was quoted as saying his ex was “worth every penny.” Diamond, 71, recently took another chance on marriage, and wed his manager, 42-year-old Katie McNeil, over the weekend.
