Divorce trends: Celebrity prenup stipulations

Prenuptial agreements are not often the first thing an engaged couple thinks about in Texas or anywhere else around the nation. While becoming increasingly popular and more mainstream, prenups are often associated with wealthy individuals or celebrities who want to protect their assets should they get a divorce. However, not all agreements deal exclusively with money. Recently, matrimonial experts shared examples of some of the more unusual prenups among the elite.

Nicole Kidman provides Keith Urban $600,000 each year they are married, provided he does not use drugs or drink excessively. Also, should they get a divorce, their children have to remain in the country where Kidman resides. Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie had addressed division property in their prenup. However, their issues stemmed from child custody issues. Tony Romo stipulated that Jessica Simpson would owe him $500,000 for every pound she weighed over 135, should they marry.

Brooke Mueller received $500,000 within 180 days of marrying Charlie Sheen, then additional payments on their anniversaries. When they divorced, she also received a relocation fee and a vehicle. Beyonce receives $5 million for every child she has with Jaz Z.  Jessica Biel is set to receive $500,000 if Justin Timberlake is unfaithful to her. Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg and his wife Priscilla Chan have specified that they will have a date each week and spend a certain amount of time alone together.

While many of these stipulations in celebrity prenups seem extravagant to most Texas couples, it is still important to address some of the same issues. A prenuptial agreement may be important if a person is a business owner, has inherited property or children from a previous relationship. A Texas divorce attorney can help clients understand their situations and develop a prenup before they get married. If already married, a lawyer can assist a client with drafting and executing a postnuptial agreement.
