Melbourne, July 11 (ANI): Golfing legend Greg Norman’’s divorce from his wife of 26 years came with a hefty price tag of 103 million dollars.

In court documents made public today, Laura Andrassy will walk away from her 25 year marriage with 103million dollars in cash and assets, including a 50 million dollars one-off payment, 500,000 dollars in jewellery, a Range Rover and personal items including four paintings of dogs and Christmas decorations.

The divorce deal also guarantees the couples children, Morgan-Leigh, 24, and Gregory, 20, will receive Normans prized gold trophies and 103 million dollars in cash when he dies, reported.

The agreement brings an end to what had become one of the most ugly celebrity divorce battles in recent years, with Norman already moving on.

He married 1980s US tennis glamour girl Chris Evert in a high-security beach resort wedding in The Bahamas last month.

The details of the divorce settlement were contained in a three-page document signed today by Floridas Martin County Circuit Judge Elizabeth Metzger.

Under the deal, Andrassy will receive a 50 million dollars payment along with 30.2 million dollars to be paid over the next 15 years.

The former flight attendant will also pocket 17.5 million dollars from the sale of the couples beloved Jupiter Island mansion in Florida, named Tranquillity.

The house was a sore point in the divorce fight.

Norman has amassed what has been estimated at a 500 million dollars empire from not only his golf earnings and sponsorships, but also investments in his wine, real estate and golf design businesses.

The divorce became bitter and personal last year when Normans lawyers came out swinging, particularly in one petition filed in court which dismissed Andrassys input into his success on the golf course. (ANI)
