Late last year, it was reported that Michael Schumacher's younger brother was only communicating with Cora, whose maiden name is Brinkmann, through their lawyers.

Shortly afterwards, it emerged that police had been called to their home, with Ralf and Cora each lodging assault claims against the other.

The reports said that after 13 years of marriage, they were fighting over the former Williams and Toyota driver's EUR 100 million fortune, their homes in Germany, Austria and France, and their 13-year-old son David.

Swiss newspaper Blick reports that after a four-hour court proceeding near Cologne, Ralf and Cora are officially divorced.

Another report, in the German gossip publication Bunte, said Cora has received a EUR 6 million settlement.

Schumacher's lawyer would not comment except to confirm: "They are divorced."
