9. Money, Money, Money
It surely is not a surprise that celebrity divorces cost a lot of money, and while we are well aware of the absurd amounts they end up having to pay each other if there was no pre-nup agreement, obtaining Wasser as a lawyer doesn’t come cheap either. She charges $850 an hour as well as a $25,000 retainer and admits she very rarely represents anyone who has less than $10 million.
Divorce is the same process for everyone, even celebrities, but their money gives them the option to keep the whole thing as private as possible. She explained that a lot of her clients hire a private judge to keep the case away from the public court system. A good judge reportedly costs $1,000 an hour, and allows there to be only those involved present, no audience and no paparazzi.
