OKLAHOMA CITY, Oklahoma -- If you're Oklahoma's richest man, then love will cost you a pretty penny.

Harold Hamm, an oil mogul from Oklahoma City  and CEO of Continental Resources, was ordered by a judge to pay his ex-wife a whopping $995.5 million bucks in a divorce settlement.

That's a whole lot of oil.

Hamm is expected to pay $322.7 million of that by the end of the year, and he'll pay the rest in installments of about $7 million a month.

Guess that's the price you pay for a love gone wrong.
