When celebrities get married, they “become one.” And sometimes their million dollar fortunes are merged as well. You can bet that a celebrity marriage these days involves a prenuptial agreement. Some of the biggest named celebrities have agreed to a prenup.
Mark Zuckerberg & Priscilla Chan
The CEO of Facebook and his wife who he met while attending Harvard University have a legally-binding “relationship contract.” The two, who are worth over 74.5 billion, are not concerned about cheating or spending too much money.
Instead, Chan created an agreement the two signed that would force Zuckerberg to take his wife out on at least one date a week and to spend almost two hours of quality alone time together every week.
Wanting to spend quality time together is a nice departure from most prenups that are only about money. But when you’re richer than rich, maybe it doesn’t matter.
Jessica Biel & Justin Timberlake
Being as successful and handsome as Timberlake is, there are bound to be a few other women who may try to seduce him. His wife, who many would consider one of the more attractive women in Hollywood, understands this so she made sure that she wouldn’t get burned if the singer/actor ever cheated on her.
According to the New York Daily News, Biel would receive $500,000 if she ever had undeniable proof of her husband’s infidelity. Between the two couples, they are worth a combined $248 million.
Kanye West & Kim Kardashian
West is known for his popular hip-hop music as well as his lavish lifestyle. His lifestyle and success could be what drew his wife to him.
According to Radar Online, if the two ever get divorced, Kardashian would be entitled to a million dollars for every year they were married. The cap is at $10 million, and any jewelry or houses that they bought together would also become hers.
This prenup resembles the same agreement between Lamar Odom and Khloe Kardashian. She would be paid $500,000 for every year the two were married. After the two divorced, she was awarded one of their mansions in California and thousands of dollars worth of jewelry.
Nicole Kidman & Keith Urban
It is no secret that country music superstar Keith Urban dealt with some demons. It was reported that he was addicted to cocaine and suffered from alcoholism at one time. When actress Nicole Kidman agreed to marry him, it was on the condition that he never does drugs again or drinks to excess.
According to Business Insider, Kidman would be awarded $600,000 for every year they are together if Urban went back to his old ways.
“Definitely we both met each other exactly at the right time,” Urban said in an interview after their marriage. “She said early on that she wanted to be brave with me. I feel there was something else at work, bringing us together and then just continuing to watch over us.” The two are worth a combined $205 million.
Jay-Z & Beyonce
To conclude this list, we look at two of the most affluential people in the entertainment business today — artists Jay-Z and Beyonce. The two entertainment superstars have a somewhat unorthodox prenup, all things considered.
The legal document states that for every child Beyonce gives birth to, she is awarded $5 million. If their marriage failed before they hit the two-year mark, she would receive $10 million. Ah, what a time to be a celebrity.
