Kara and Stephen married in 2003 and have two children each from previous marriages - Kara had daughters Jennifer and Kimberly, and Stephen had Avery and Drew.

They announced in a joint statement to Page Six in April that they were planning to get a divorce.

'We have deep love and respect for each other,' they said at the time. 'We will continue to be a part of each other's lives and support what is best for the health and happiness of our family.'

Unnamed sources told Page Six that the separation was amicable and the couple had a prenuptial agreement, which stipulates that Kara, a jewelry designer to stars like Michelle Obama, Oprah Winfrey and Anne Hathaway, will not get any of Stephen's business holdings.

[I want to] be with my mother [and] my family, to be in the place I have called home since I was a year old.

Still, a legal expert not involved in the proceedings speculated Kara could get up to $300 million 'making this one of the most expensive divorces in New York.'

Both mansions include a private pool and sit in front of the water.

The Rosses also shared a massive 8,274-square-foot penthouse condominium at Related's Time Warner Center overlooking Central Park.

It features a 42-foot-wide living room, a 22-foot-wide dining room, a professional chef's kitchen and a breakfast nook with views of the Hudson River.

Is this the best version of Warriors star Stephen Curry we've ever seen?

  Is this the best version of Warriors star Stephen Curry we've ever seen? Stephen Curry has been phenomenal to start the 2021-22 NBA season, but how does this season stack up against 2015-16 when he was the unanimous MVP?If there was an MVP handed out for the first quarter of the season, the trophy would definitely have Curry's name etched onto it.

Throughout the five-bedroom, six-and-a-half bath penthouse, there are marble floors, floor-to-ceiling windows offering a panoramic view of the city, with dual fireplaces and doors and flooring made of Bubinga wood, and beams and moldings made of Padouk wood, according to StreetEasy.

The penthouse also featured a powder room with LED lights that can change colors, a handblown chandelier and sculptures throughout the expansive home.

Kara told Architectural Digest in 2015 that nothing could beat the views.

'Living above Central Park like this feels like you're actually living in the park,' she said at the time. 'It's as if you're in a painting that's always changing from green to yellow to red to gray and slowly back to green again.

'It has a kind of power that most art can only dream about.'

They listed the condominium in 2019 for $75 million, CityRealty reported at the time, as the couple said they wanted to move into a new place overlooking Stephen's development at the Hudson Yards.

It finally sold in July for just $49.9 million, according to StreetEasy.

Stephen is now being represented in the divorce proceedings by William D. Zabel from Schulte Roth and Zabel, whose clients have included George Soros, golfer Greg Norman and Howard Stern, while Kara is being represented by Judith Poller at Pryor Cashman, who has previously handled cases for Drew Barrymore and Scarlett Johansson.
