The Unexpected Terms of Some of the Most Famous Couples’ Prenups


We’ve witnessed countless of break ups, where the more wealthy partner ends up giving half of their money and property based on the years of marriage. These examples have helped famous couples make the decision to sign a prenup before they get married. Things might be perfect and glowing in the beginning, but as time goes by and life married life gets more complicated, the two partners might start drifting apart and finally get to the point where they don’t give a damn about each other. This kind of attitude is what entitles the less wealthy partner to demand a bucketload of money, which the more wealthy partner is in no mood to give out.


1. Jessica Biel and Justin Timberlake

Jessica Biel has been cheated before and if Justin Timberlake does it again, he will have to pay $500,000 to her.


2. Nicole Kidman and Keith Urban

Nicole Kidman told Keith Urban that she would not tolerate excessive drug or alcohol abuse, which would result in him paying $600,000 for each year they’ve been married.


3. Beyonce and Jay-Z 

The two of them have agreed that she would get $5 million for every kid she had and $10 million if the marriage ended before two years.


4. Mark Zuckerberg and Priscilla Chan

Mark Zuckerberg agreed to take Priscilla Chan out on a date once a week and spend 100 minutes of alone time on the weekends outside his office or his apartment.


5. Kim Kardashian and Kanye West

They have agreed that Kris Jenner would make no decision about the career of the couple and that Kim would keep all the gifts that Kanye gave to her while they were married.


6. Catherine Zeta Jones and Michael Douglas

Catherine Zeta Jones would get $5 million if she caught Michael Douglas cheating and $2.8 million for each year of their marriage if ever gotten a divorce.


7. Katie Holmes and Tom Cruise

Katie Holmes would get $3 million for each year of marriage from Tom Cruise, but when they broke up she only got $400,000 yearly in child support for her daughter Suri.


8. Angelina Jolie Brad Pitt

Angelina Jolie put a term that if Brad Pitt was ever to cheat he would lose custody to all of their kids. 


When you read about a seemingly happy couple and you later read their prenup, it feels like you’re reading a business contract, but I guess that when there are so much money in the middle you can’t really trust anyone. The person who now is the love of your life can be your enemy a few years later.
