News Corp CEO Rupert Murdoch filed for divorce from Wendi Deng on Thursday.

There’s no word on what the split could cost Murdoch, but the media mogul already has a history of costly divorce settlements.

Murdoch separated from former wife Anna Torv in 1999, paying a reported $1.7 billion (including $110 million in cash), making it the most expensive divorce of all time.

The pair had been married for 32 years. Murdoch married 30-year-old Deng just 17 days later.

Murdoch, now 82 years old, is worth $11.2 billion, according to Forbes.
