At no point was she running the actual company. She was not the CEO. She was just a regular employee, with probably at least a dozen other people occupying the same position she was at any given moment in time. She didn't start it. She didn't lead it. She did a normal salaried position. She is entitled to whatever her salary is for as long as she continues to work there, or if for whatever reason she is owed backpay. Nothing more, nothing less.
She is greedy. She's complaining about becoming a billionaire for work she never did.

Jeez...how can rich a guy be so stupid.
It's called a 'pre-nup'.
DUH...if a woman won't marry you with it, she does not love you.

There cannot possibly be "more to the story" if she does not own part of the company. Whether or not it is legal or common, it is wrong for a grown adult to demand to be supported by someone they've divorced. If you don't want to be a partner, why do you deserve their money? You don't. It's quite simple. Unless there are some kind of legitimate damages -- and having to be a grown-up and figure out your own finances does not count -- you don't deserve the monetary support of someone you are not in a partnership with.
There is quite simply nothing else to take into account ethically, regardless of whatever nonsense the law might allow.
Someone who complains about receiving a billion dollars they did nothing to earn is simply greedy.
