CASHING OUT (Clockwise from left) Abramovich, Zhukova, Malandina
Though we may never know the exact financial details of her mega-divorce, Irina Malandina may now be one of the wealthiest women in the world, and certainly the wealthiest former flight attendant.
Thanks to her break from Russian oligarch Roman Abramovich, Irina now lays claim to a large stake of his fortune. And though it was reportedly an amicable split, her choice of lawyers (the aptly named Raymond "Jaws" Tooth and Nicholas "Mr. Payout" Mostyn) might suggest otherwise. Malandina, enraged at her husband's "close friendship" with 25-year-old Russian socialite Dasha Zhukova, was also tired of what she called the zolotaya kletka—or golden cage—the pair lived in.
