17 Celebrity Marriages With Weird (And Brilliant) Prenups


2. Beyoncé and Jay Z

You just had my baby? Oh, you shouldn’t have! Really though, here’s $5mil… nice job. Not only does Bey get a cool $5mil with each child she bears, she would also receive $1 million for every year the couple was married if they divorce.

If you have got millions you’re not going to be struggling. You see your £17 million go down to £9 million you’re still going to live comfortably.Jay Z said.

But if you have a £600,000 house in say Mawson Road [off Mill Road, Cambridge], if the sale of that house is split, the chances are you’re not going to be able to still live in Cambridge with the way house prices are.

It’s not the most romantic process, but it gives certainty and clarity. Many people are nervous about entering into marriages, especially when they have been scarred before, but it can provide people with peace of mind.

It does not have to be adversarial, you can sit people in a room together. Lawyers make their money when there is conflict. But you can frontload these decisions, so that agreements are made when there is no animosity, people are thinking clearly, rather than distressed, hurt or angry.

Beyoncé said, “Often people who are entering their second marriage have already had their fingers burned and want to regularize things while everything is still happy to try and avoid what can happen following a break-up.

It’s not very romantic, but I think from our point of view dealing with the kind of fall-outs when relationships go wrong it is a very practical thing to do. If it’s dealt with sensitively it doesn’t have to make any difference to the relationship.”

      Um, how about the fact that he humiliated her in front of the entire world? Not so greedy, after all. JUSTIFIED.

      To a baby sitter no less. There is nothing wrong with being a baby sitter, but the point is that you can barely feed yourself with that type of salary, and now she’s incredibly rich just by marrying him. But then again, Tiger would pay ANY price for a blond!

        Tiger had a choice to be a good, faithful husband. He chose differently. She was the faithful one. You play…you pay. I have no tears for Tiger….he did it to himself.

    Wow a porker clause if they were to marry, how about him not folding like broken lawn furniture under pressure.

      Does she still get 5 mil even if she didn’t give birth to the child!

      • Lovely Dayz

        March 9, 2014 at 2:40 am

        I guess so because she DIDN’T and we all know that!

    • KathyC

      April 23, 2014 at 2:54 pm

      Beyoncé has plenty of her own money…..doesn’t need to get pregnant unless she wants another child. She doesn’t need Jay Z’s money.

    First of all 750million. What a joke. How does some blond what appears to be total prissy biaaach deserve that kind of money for a few years of marriage, If I was wealthy and had a woman put a clause about cheating I’d have a clause they can’t refuse me sex in any way I like. Women who put clauses about cheating basically set themselves up to get money. All they have to do is cut the guy off he cheats they get rich and move on. Why don’t guys with money figure this out,. Hollywood marriages don’t last why take the hit

    The Khloe and Lamar one is just dumb. A new car at the end of every lease, money for shopping and beauty upkeep, and lifetime tickets to Lakers games? WTF?
    I don’t get the Beyoncé/Jay Z situation where she gets $5 mil for every baby. Is that so he doesn’t have to pay child support or what?

  11. Nikki

    March 6, 2014 at 9:40 pm

    Did you even read the article? It ain’t just women, Rosanne refused a prenup and Tom Arnold got about $50 mil, K Fed got a mil from Britney, and dude bounced on Liz Taylor after exactly 5 years because that entitled him to a mil. It goes both ways.

    Khloe and Lamar will get back together you like it or not haters just watch goons

      Always paying women

      • KathyC

        April 23, 2014 at 2:57 pm

        Because they can’t deal with women in a mature, honest manner.

      • MadamTechy

        April 25, 2014 at 11:14 am

        men pay bc they think being the town HO is a family value .. just teach each other the virtue of honesty in a marriage .. and women will follow .. just sayin’

    Nicole Kidman and Keith Urban is the only couple on this list that I don’t think need a prenuptial agreement. Love these two and they adore each other.

    I don’t believe half of what is reported here. Keith Urban is an alcoholic, not a drug addict, BTW.

    Marriage is a crock. Why can’t people just admit it’s just another business deal instead of getting caught up in this unrealistic, unnatural “forever and ever” jazz? Seriously, if you have a pre-nup, you’re already admitting you know you won’t make it and are just in it for the money. So happy I’ll never sign my life away!

    What you just wrote was pure stupidity! I’ve NEVER heard of anyone wearing anything to protect their belly! You do know stupid people are born every minute!

  20. Lovely Dayz

    Hence, neither were you so your argument is INVALID and the belly ‘protection’ is quite stupid!! You must live in a trailer park and need to ‘travel’ more! You’re dismissed!!! Carry on… anonymous troll!
