Sue Ann Arnall, the ex-wife of Oklahoma oil magnate Harold Hamm, is seeking to cash a $975 million handwritten divorce check just days after rejecting the payment, a source familiar with the matter said.

Earlier this week, Arnall’s lawyers said she didn’t want to accept the check for fear of hurting her appeal of a divorce ruling she says short-changed her

It’s not yet clear if Arnall’s attempt to cash the check will lead to withdrawing her appeal or how it may affect the Continental Resources chief executive’s own appeal to Oklahoma’s Supreme Court.

The years-long bitter divorce battle ended in one of the largest court awards in U.S. history. Arnall, a former Continental executive, has contended that it wrongly allowed Hamm to keep as much as 94% of an $18 billion fortune the couple built together over a 26-year marriage.
