How will Anthony Scaramucci's net worth get divided after his divorce? The financier and former White House adviser has millions of dollars at stake following his split from wife Deidre Ball.
After he took his job in the White House, Scaramucci filled out a financial disclosure form with the Office of Government Ethics. According to Politico, Scaramucci claimed on the form that he had $85 million of assets. Much of his net worth came from his 43.8 percent ownership stake in the investment firm SkyBridge Capital. From January 2016 to June 2017 alone, he made around $4.9 million as an owner and another $5 million in salary.
Scaramucci earned his millions from other places, as well. He owns multiple single-family rental homes on Long Island. He is also a minority owner of the New York Mets, and he is an investor in the Juice Press restaurant chain. Per TMZ, Scaramucci additionally made $25,000-$50,000 per speaking engagement, and that number could go up following his tumultuous White House stint.

Deidre Ball filed for divorce from Anthony Scaramucci last month after three years of marriage. At the time, reports said Ball was upset about Scaramucci's desire to get close to President Donald Trump. House. But her lawyer said that was not the case.
"I don’t know where that came from, but it is not accurate," Jill Stone told People. "It is a false fact."
But if Ball really was upset about her husband's political aspirations, she may take out her anger during the divorce negotiations and go after more of Scaramucci's money. The net worth battle could also get tense if the cheating allegations against the former White House Communications Director are true.
There have been unconfirmed reports that Scaramucci had an affair with Fox News host Kimberly Guilfoyle. The speculation intensified when another source claimed the duo went apartment hunting together back in June. But insiders say they are just friends, and that the apartment hunt was nothing scandalous.

“Kimberly and Anthony have long been friends because he’s a regular Fox contributor," a source told People. "They share the same real estate agent in New York and she lives in The Beresford and he was looking in the Beresford. He asked her if she could look with him because she knows the building so well, just to get her thoughts. She lives in the building and he said, 'Is this a good deal? Is this a good unit? What do you think?' and it was that simple."
Of course, there may not be a need for potentially contentious divorce negotiations if the couple signed a prenup. Either way, it doesn't seem like Ball is too concerned about her financial situation following her split from Scaramucci.
After all, she has two young kids, including a baby boy she gave birth to just weeks after filing for divorce. She and Scaramucci also share a 3-year-old son, Nicholas. So she will probably get a lot of child support from her ex. She also likely wouldn't have filed for divorce while nine months pregnant if she was worried about how a split would affect her finances.
