Donald Trump’s $95 million Palm Beach mansion sits at the middle of a divorce case, but the Donald is nowhere in sight.

He sold the 33,000-square foot oceanfront mansion to Dmitri Rybolovlev, a Russian billionaire who made his money in fertilizer.

Now his wife, Elena Rybolovlev, says her husband has been unfaithful and she wants 50 percent of the couple’s marital assets, a number she puts between $6 billion and $12 billion.

One of the items at issue will be the 33,000-square-foot property.

Dmitri Rybolovlev Russian billionaire

Trump had bought the mansion for $41.35 million in 2004 and restored it, asking at one point, for $125 million for the home.

However, the Palm Beach Post reports that in July 2008, through County Road Property, Rybolovlev paid $95 million cash for the home.

The deal was considered the nation’s most expensive sale of a U.S. single-family home.

And soon it could turn into the most expensive U.S. house to be fought over in divorce court!
