Those who know me know it, celebrities and prenups are my two passions. So it’s quite naturally that I was given this top to do on the strangest marriage contracts of our friends the stars. And it is clear that there is something to say on the subject, such as the weddings of the shortest stars or the stars who got married when they were still teenagers. Let’s not waste time, I’m way too excited to continue this introduction.
1. Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie
The famous couple who are now a thing of the past had a prenup in which a clause stipulated that if Brad Pitt cheated on Angelina, she would have sole custody of all their children and the copy of the DVD of The mummy 2 torque (no it’s not true). Have you seen the reasons to settle down with Brad Pitt? He has a PS5 askip.
2. Katie Holmes and Tom Cruise
Cruise and Holmes’ marriage contract stipulated that if they separated, Katie Holmes would receive $3 million per year of marriage and the small sum of $400,000 in child support for their supposedly expensive daughter. Good after that does not make you want to laugh too much because their marriage looked badant. Moreover, for her divorce she had been forced to agree not to appear as a couple for five years, nice.
3. Kim Kardashian and Kanye West
In the same idea as Katie Holmes and Tom Cruise, the marriage contract of this couple gives Kim Kardashian the right to obtain 1 million dollars per year of marriage but also the right to keep all the gifts offered by Kanye (like a hologram of his dead daron which is one of the worst gifts from stars), his wedding ring and the income from his clothing line and his TV appearances. Basically she has the right to keep things that belong to her, it’s quite logical.
4. Beyoncé and Jay-Z
There’s big money in this couple, so the marriage contract might as well tell you right away, it was written by artisan lawyers who live in monasteries, the fine flower of matrimonial law. Beyoncé is therefore entitled in the event of a divorce to 1 million dollars for each year of marriage (they have been married since 2008) and 5 million dollars per child (they have three). After Jay-Z is farted since his fortune is estimated at more than a billion dollars and that he apparently has a copy of the Millennium Falcon in Lego.
5. Priscilla Chan and Mark Zuckerberg
The famous Facebook creator has two rather strange clauses in his marriage contract: his wife must reserve at least 100 minutes a week for him to see each other outside of his apartment and the Facebook offices and they must all two have at least one date a week. Frankly, it’s sadder than anything else to have to have this signed. And at the same time look how happy they look in this vacation photo.
6. Jessica Biel and Justin Timberlake
If Justin Timberlake ever cheats on his wife Jessica Biel, he must give her $500,000 directly. That’s about the only thing special in this contract, just to make sure that JT doesn’t do shit at the night of the fireman’s ball where he goes every year. It doesn’t necessarily smack of trust in this marriage and at the same time even I freak out that he’s cheating on me, he’s so handsome.
7. Hugh Hefner and Crystal Harris
You know Hugh Hefner, or at least you know his famous magazine Playboy, so Hefner is the billionaire who lived in a mansion with lots of bunny-eared women. Anyway, when he married Crystal Harris, he drew up a prenup that left nothing for his wife if she left him. That said, after his death he bequeathed him nearly 43 million dollars and the famous mansion so that’s fine.
8. Ben Affleck and Jennifer Lopez
Well now they’re re-spinning perfect love so it’s cool, but their first wedding was called off because Ben Affleck refused to sign the prenup. In the famous contract Jennifer Lopez was to recover 5 million dollars in case of adultery and 1 million dollars if Ben tried to lie to hide his deception. There was also a clause that said they had to ken 4 times a week, but that’s pretty cool.
9. Keith Urban and Nicole Kidman
In order to protect her fortune, actress Nicole Kidman would have had a marriage contract drawn up which stipulates that if her husband resumes snorting coke and drinking alcohol, she will obtain a divorce directly without paying him a single penny. A beautiful proof of love and support in the adversity of life.
10. Denise Richards and Charlie Sheen
When you marry Charlie Sheen you have to be a bit careful since the guy is completely wild, which Denise Richards did by making him sign a solid prenup: 4 million dollars per adultery, plus $300,000 per year of marriage in case of divorce. The actor had signed the thing off but still said prenups were poison to a union. That and cheating on his wife a little too.
