Russian billionaire Farkhad Akhmedov’s multimillion dollar British divorce has been laid bare more than a year after a British judge awarded one of the largest divorce payouts in U.K. history.

He was ordered to pay Tatiana Akhmedova 453.5 million pounds ($643 million), or 41 percent of his assets, in December 2016. She hasn’t gotten anything, according to documents filed by her lawyers for an appellate hearing Wednesday.
