Harrison Ford's ex receives €72m in divorce settlement

Harrison Ford's ex-wife has received a record-breaking divorce settlement.

Harrison Ford's ex-wife has received a record-breaking divorce settlement.

Melissa Mathison will get €72m in the settlement so Ford can be free to marry Ally McBeal star Calista Flockhart - should he wish to.

According to The Mail on Sunday the deal breaks new ground, as not only does it divide assests the couple shared, but it also entitles Mathison to get back future earnings from films Ford made while there were together.

Ford, who did not have a pre-nuptial agreement with his wife, has agreed to split earnings from the royalties, videos and Dvds from films including Air Force one and two Indiana Jones films.

Mathison, 53, will also keep all earnings from her screenplay to Steven Spielberg's ET, which she wrote before she wed Ford.

The couple met on the set of Aplcalypse Now in 1976.
