Jackie ‘O’ Henderson shocked fans last month when she announced she had split with her husband of 15 years, Lee.
But it seems it might not be just the radio star’s emotions that will take a hit.
New Idea reported this week that the 43-year-old’s divorce could leave her $10million out of pocket.

The magazine claimed that Jackie, who reportedly earns $6 million a year hosting the Kyle & Jackie O Show, could be forced to shell out in a hefty divorce settlement as well as pay Lee spousal maintenance.
‘Jac is and has always been the breadwinner in the relationship, so there is no doubt Lee will struggle without her,’ a source told the publication.
‘When she fell pregnant with Kitty, the plan was always to go back to work and make the money and Lee would stay at home and look after [their seven-year-old daughter] Kitty, even though they could have easily afforded a nanny.’
The former couple also own a lavish $6.7 million home in the exclusive Sydney suburb of Vaucluse, which they bought in 2012.
Last month, Jackie confirmed she had moved out of the marital home and Lee remains living there.

Financial woes aren’t the only thing that may be causing concern for Jackie.
Last week the blonde presenter slammed rumours she has ‘found comfort in the arms’ of her colleague Beau Ryan.
Woman’s Day claimed Jackie’s close friendship with Beau caused friction within her marriage to Lee.
‘I completely understand why Lee was jealous. Jackie gushes about Beau all the time, and they laugh a lot together,’ a ‘source’ allegedly told the magazine.
‘And he’s been raving about Jackie to anyone who will listen.’
Rival magazine New Idea also got in on the action, claiming that Jackie sought ‘comfort in the arms’ of Beau, and that the former NRL player made her laugh ‘like no one else’.

Jackie was irate at the accusations and didn’t hold back with her fury during her radio show last week.
‘It is completely false and those types of allegations are really hurtful to both families involved in this,’ Jackie fumed.
‘I would have welcomed a phone call from either magazine for my side of the story but of course there was no phone call made, they just ran with those allegations.’
Beau, who regularly fills in for Jackie’s co-host Kyle Sandilands, is married to Kara Ryan, and the couple share two children: Remi, five, and Jesse, one

A spokesperson for ARN previously told Daily Mail Australia that any speculation that Jackie and Beau’s relationship is anything but ‘professional’ is completely false.
‘Beau is a regular guest on KIIS 1065 with Kyle and Jackie and is a great contributor to the show,’ the statement read.
‘Confirming that their relationship is strictly professional and any speculation otherwise is completely fabricated and categorically untrue.
