Legendary “Seinfeld” co-creator Larry David and his wife Laurie seemed to be one of Hollywood’s happiest couples.
But after 14 years of marriage, the two have split – and it could become one of the most expensive divorces in history.
Though the breakup is being called “completely amicable,” Larry’s fortune is estimated at a whopping $600 million – and that could make a divorce settlement very interesting!
He has made an estimated $242 million on the syndication rights from “Seinfeld” alone.
Larry, the creator of “Curb Your Enthusiasm,” and Laurie, an eco-activist who was one of the producers of Al Gore’s “An Inconvenient Truth,” have two children, Cazzie, 12, and Romy, 10.
Their rep said, “They are both really sad but they are great friends and they are still spending a lot of time together at their LA home with their kids.”
Although Laurie, 49, is passionate about spreading awareness about the earth, Larry, 59, has longed joked about her environmental work.
In 2005, he told People, “I think you probably read where I said I thought I married a narcissistic, materialistic kind of princess from Long Island, and it turns out that she completely misrepresented herself.”
He went on to joke, “I hardly ever see her except when she's telling me she's giving my car away or I have to appear somewhere on behalf of a Prius."
He once told “Extra” that “everything she touches turns to gold, except me.”
All kidding aside, Larry said about his wife, “There is nothing selfish about her motives in any way.”
Meanwhile, Laurie has praised Larry as a parent, telling People in 2005, "He was a performer who was a comedian. What do they know about being fathers? But he's the best father in the whole world. I never expected that. I knew I wanted to be a good mother and thought that could cover for both of us, but it was a nice gift to find out he was a good dad."
