Most interesting celebrity prenups

It might not be very romantic, but prenuptial agreement can be a useful thing. This is the case with stars who need to protect their fortunes and we know that celebrity marriages are not the most solid ones. And, what’s even more interesting, these celebrity prenups sometimes include unusual clauses. Check out the most interesting ones.

Jessica Biel and Justin Timberlake







As crazy as it sounds, even the gorgeous Hollywood star Jessica Biel worries about her husband cheating, but the truth is Justin Timberlake did stray in the past; they were on-and-off for almost a year due to cheating rumors. The actress has a prenup clause warning that if Justin cheats on her, she gets to walk away with a divorce and an agreed sum of $500,000.

Nicole Kidman and Keith Urban







Nicole and Keith met in January 2005, and they got married in June the following year. Keith has struggled with drugs issues in the past, so Nicole has a prenup that has considerations for this. The Oscar-winning actress didn’t want a prenup, but her advisors insisted. The end result is that if the couple ever divorces, he’ll get about $640,000 for every year they were married. However, if Urban — who’s struggled with substance abuse in the past — uses illegal drugs, he won’t get a penny.

Elin Nordegren and Tiger Woods







In their original prenup, Elin agreed to a $20 million payout if they remained married for at least 10 years. But after the numerous cheating scandals surfaced, she demanded that the prenup be rewritten. At the end of the all the drama, Elin received a total of $110 million. That doesn’t even include the child support payments.

Katie Holmes and Tom Cruise

2012 Vanity Fair Oscar Party






The deal the couple struck in 2006 supposedly guaranteed that in the event of a divorce, Katie would get $3 million for every year they were married. That would’ve been capped at $33 million — but if things had lasted that long, Katie would have been entitled to half of Tom‘s earnings. The details of their quickie divorce were never made public, but most experts say Katie likely did just fine .

Khloe Kardashian and Lamar Odom







They were married for 4 years. Under the terms of their prenup, Khloe gets $2 million ($500,000 for each of the 4 years she was married to the NBA basketball player.) She also gets $25,000 a month in support, the house, a new car at the end of every lease cycle, $5,000 a month for shopping, $1,000 a month for beauty care, and courtside seats for Lakers games for her entire family.

Denise Richards and Charlie Sheen







Denise Richards and Charlie Sheen had a spectacularly messy divorce, but thankfully there was a pre-nup to keep it on track. The most interesting part was that Denise was guaranteed a $4 million bonus if Charlie ever cheated on her.

Catherine Zeta-Jones and Michael Douglas







Catherine Zeta-Jones made quite a deal when she made her prenuptial agreement with Michael Douglas! This agreement states that the actress gets nearly $2.8 million for each year they are married, and she also gets a $5 million bonus if he cheats. What does he get in return?  A confidentiality clause from Catherine, barring her from ever revealing personal details of their marriage. In an interview with Vogue, Zeta-Jones has admitted that, under her prenup with Douglas, she is “taken care of very well.”

Beyoncé and Jay-Z







They are a true power couple with a beautiful daughter named Blue Ivy. Plus, each have amassed separate musical empires worth millions. Yet, the legal terms of their prenup states that Beyoncé is entitled to only $1 million for each year they are married, with a maximum of just $15 million. She will also get $5 million for Blue Ivy.

    Wait, so khloe’s prenup is basically spending his money while she stacks hers? How can he agree to this knowing he has kids….she is probably earning more than him now with all her reality shows, x-factor, kardashian stores, products and endorsement deals and magazine covers and articles and appearances. Kardashians really know how to p***y whip their men!

    IF this is true, Jessica Biel is an idiot ($500 K for cheating really, drop in the bucket for JT). Khloe is smart. And either Katie Holmes doesn’t care about money or Tom Cruise was just unbearable because she filed and early. Maybe its both.
