Hedge fund billionaire files for divorce

Crack Split

Kenneth C. Griffin, the billionaire founder of hedge-fund firm Citadel, filed for divorce from his wife of 11 years citing 'irreconcilable differences'.

Bloomberg News reports that Griffin, 45, said an 'irretrievable breakdown' of his marriage to Anne Dias Griffin, 43, triggered his request for a divorce, according to a four-page filing yesterday in Chicago state court.

The couple has been separated for more than a year, he said. Griffin asked for an order of joint custody of their three children, who are all under six years of age.

'Kenneth and Anne signed a premarital agreement dated July 18, 2003, which governs all issues resulting from the parties’ marriage, including but not limited to maintenance and the division of marital and non-marital property', Griffin’s lawyers said in the filing.

The divorce won’t affect the finances of $20bn Citadel, according to a person with knowledge of the matter.
