Ted Turner’s Divorce Settlement
Over $100 million in liquid assets (cash and stock), including shares in Ted’s company before it merged with AOL, was purportedly paid to Jane. In addition, she inherited a 2,500-acre ranch and other important real estate holdings, such as a farm. And while that may sound like a big deal, Ted Turner owns far more than just a 2,500-acre ranch. When it comes to personal and ranch land ownership in the United States, Ted is second only to Warren Buffett, who owns more than 2.2 million acres. He has so much land that he could ride a horse from Canada to Mexico entirely on his own property.
Fonda worked on an average of roughly two films a year in her early career in the 1960s. “Tall Story,” “Walk on the Wild Side,” “Cat Ballou,” “The Chase,” and “Barbarella” are a few examples from the 1960s (1968).
