Hedge fund billionaire David Einhorn is divorcing his wife, Cheryl, after 24 years of marriage.  The couple created the Einhorn Family Charitable Trust and lived in a 10,000-foot square home in Rye, New York, reported to be part of the divorce filings.

It was not immediately clear as to why the couple were separating.

In 2006, Einhorn finished 18th in the World Series of Poker and donated his winnings of over $650,000. In 2012, he donated his 3rd place World Series of Poker tournament winnings (over $4 million) to City Year.

His total live earnings to date amounted to just over $5.1 million.
