These are the 7 of the wildest celebrity prenups of all-time
With divorce statistics clearly much worse when it comes to celebrity circles, it's no surprise that most A-listers ensure they get themselves a prenup before getting hitched. While Prince Harry and Meghan Markle insisted their bond would last forever by refusing to get the pre-marriage agreement, the rest of the rich and famous are adamant about protecting themselves – and their assets.
Of course, when there are millions of dollars and precious reputations at stake, these are no ordinary prenuptial agreements. In fact, some of them sound pretty wild. Here are 7 of the most elaborate (and juicy!) celebrity prenups.
1. Jessica Biel and Justin Timberlake
They split in 2011 after dating a while, saying in a joint statement that it was mutual and nothing scandalous, though rumors did spread that Justin had cheated. Things only got more interesting when they did wed in 2012, and details of their prenup were released. There's a clause that says if Justin cheats on Jessica, he has to pay her $500,000.
2. Jennifer Aniston and Justin Theroux
They reportedly started dating back in 2011, got married in 2015 and sadly announced their divorce earlier this year. Before they tied the knot, they had "long and intense" prenup talks that resulted in an "ironclad" agreement that according to Us Weekly "would be very hard for Justin to contest" with.
3. Nicole Kidman and Keith Urban
Nicole would be required to pay the singer $640,000 for every year of marriage if they were to get a divorce. But due to his prior addiction to cocaine, the prenup states that he'll get zilch is he ever uses any illegal drugs.
4. Kim Kardashian and Kanye West
Kanye insisted on including a clause that stipulates Kris Jenner isn't allowed to make career decisions that will impact the couple. Kim would get $1 million for every year she was married to Kanye if they divorce, as well as her wedding ring and all the gifts Kanye got her (that includes all those shares he got her for Christmas last year). Oddly enough, there isn't a child custody clause to dictate what would happen to their three kids.
5. Catherine Zeta-Jones and Michael Douglas
They've been married for 18 years, meaning it would cost Michael a pretty penny if they ever got divorced. Their prenup states that Catherine would receive $2.8 million for each year of marriage, plus an additional $5 if Michael cheats.
6. Priscilla Chan and Mark Zuckerberg
The most interesting thing about their prenup is a special lifestyle clause, which ensures that Priscilla gets one date night and 100 minutes of alone time with her tech mogul husband per week. Surprise, surprise – neither of them are allowed to go on Facebook during their alone time together.
7. Jay-Z and Beyoncé
They started dating when Bey was only 19, and got married eight years later. No matter if they got divorced or not, Beyoncé made sure she'd get enough support if they have kids. Their prenup ensures she gets $5 million for every baby she has, and in the instance that they do ever divorce, she'll also get $1 million for every year they were married. Not that it'll mean anything to either of them – Beyoncé's net worth was $350 million and Jay-Z's was $810 million in 2017, according to Forbes.
