The divorce settlement between these two former couples is known to be the biggest settlement in the history of that time. Vanoy eventually received a sum of $168 million in 2006. Not only did she receive the huge sum of money, she was provided with legal custody of their children as well as the luxurious seven-acre manor in Chicago.
Moreover, right after their marriage, they both signed a prenuptial agreement which stated that Vanoy would be given half of his wealth and riches in case of their divorce. Post-divorce, 57-year-old Juanita went on to be supposedly involved with a banker younger than her age.
