9 Craziest Celebrity Prenup Agreements
In Hollywood, love and marriage are generally accompanied by a prenuptial agreement, which makes perfect sense! These stars are super rich and want to stay that way, so they must protect their bank balances and their assets. We have compiled a list of 9 of the craziest celebrity prenup agreements ever:
9. Britney Spears and Kevin Federline
Britney Spears didn’t initially want a prenup when she decided to marry Kevin Federline, but her family had her massive fortune in mind and managed to convince her that one was necessary! Apparently, when the couple broke up back in 2006, the struggling rapper only made off with $1 million!
8. Charlie Sheen and Denise Richards
In Charlie Sheen and Denise Richards’ prenup, the Wild Things actress would have been awarded $4 million if the Anger Management star cheated on her and she could prove it! Considering his love of porn stars and strippers, this should have been pretty easy!
7. Katie Holmes and Tom Cruise
According to Katie Holmes and Tom Cruise’s prenup, she got $3 million for every year that they were married but, if they lasted 11 years or more, the prenup was void and the actress was entitled to half of the actor’s entire fortune! The Dawson’s Creek star is pretty frugal, so whatever she took from the prenup will probably last her for many years to come!
6. Justin Timberlake and Jessica Biel
It looks like Jessica Biel doesn’t trust her man Justin Timberlake and the proof is in their alleged prenup! Rumor has it that this couple’s prenup includes an agreement that would net the actress $500,000 if JT cheats! Considering how rich Timberlake is, it doesn’t seem like $500,000 will stop him!
5. Khloe Kardashian and Lamar Odom
Khloe Kardashian reportedly asked for $500,000 for each year that she and Lamar Odom were married plus $25,000 a month in support, their house, a new car at the end of each lease cycle, $5,000 a month for shopping, $1,000 for beauty care and court-side seats at Lakers games.
4. Catherine Zeta-Jones and Michael Douglas
Catherine Zeta-Jones and Michael Douglas reportedly have a cheating clause in their prenuptial agreement. If the couple ever divorces, the Chicago star is entitled to $2.8 million for every year of marriage and an additional $5 million bonus if Douglas gets caught cheating! In an interview with Vogue, Zeta-Jones has admitted that, under her prenup with Douglas, she is “taken care of very well.” We couldn’t agree more!
3. Jay Z and Beyonce
Jay Z and Beyonce’s prenup stands to make her an even wealthier lady – if the two ever divorce! If the marriage had ended before their two year anniversary, the rapper would have had to pay her $10 million; for every child that they have, he must pay her an additional $5 million; and for each year that they are married, he owes her another $1 million, up to a maximum of 15 years.
2. Steven Spielberg and Amy Irving
Back in 1984, when Spielberg married Amy Irving, they wrote their prenuptial agreement on a cocktail napkin! In 1989, after the couple had decided to part ways, the prenup didn’t stick in court and the actress ended up walking away with $100 million of the director’s net worth at the time!
1. Tiger Woods and Elin Nordegren
In Tiger Woods and Eli Nordegren’s initial prenup, she was only entitled to $20 million; however, after a massive cheating scandal, the golf star decided to sweeten the deal! The former model ended up walking away with $110 million instead. Considering all of the humiliation that Nordegren had to endure, we think he should have offered a little more!
