1. Kandi Burruss & Todd Tucker
Kandi had her lawyers carefully craft a prenuptial agreement that was meant to actually protect both she and Todd in the event of a divorce — but Todd’s lawyer wasn’t keen on having him sign it so quickly. . . or so the story line goes on the reality show. Apparently, he said he signed the prenup to prove once and for all his love for and commitment to Kandi.
2. Gabrielle Union and Dwayne Wade
Gabrielle said in an article that she asked her famous ball player husband for a preup to make sure she understood that she wasn’t after his millions.
3. Liz Taylor & Larry Fortensky
Liz and Larry met in rehab, fell in love, signed a prenup and got married at Neverland Ranch. Typically, a prenup dictates what happens once the marriage ends; however, their prenup stipulated that in order for Fortensky to receive his cool million, he had to stay married to Liz for five years. That is exactly what he did.
4. Roseanne Barr & Tom Arnold
Roseanne was so madly in love with Tom when they wed, that she actually fired her lawyer for even suggesting the couple sign a prenup. Big Mistake! After the marriage of only four years failed, Tom was awarded $50 million of Roseanne’s money.
5. Kevin Federline & Britney Spears
Britney actually had an ironclad prenup in place, but that didn’t stop K-Fed. The backup dancer and aspiring rapper finally walked away with a million plus $20,000 a month in child support. His claim to fame now is appearing on celebrity weight-loss shows.
6. Janet Jackson & Rene Elizondo, Jr.
This couple wed in 1991 and kept their marriage under the radar. Over the course of their 13-year marriage, they grew apart and eventually split for good in 2000. He sued Janet for spousal support, claiming that he’d been forced under duress to sign a prenuptial agreement. At the end of all the messy courtroom action, Elizondo came away with an estimated $10 million in cash.
7. The Dream & Christina Milian
These two got married in September 2009 and filed for divorce in February of 2010. The Dream agreed to (without the advice of counsels) to visitation with their child as the parties can best work out. She will receive $10K monthly in child support, $3,500 monthly in alimony for two years or upon remarriage. They both got to keep their own possessions, jewelry, businesses and she got to keep her Mercedes G55. The only thing The Dream tried to back out of was an agreement pertaining to Justin Bieber’s “Baby” single which he co-wrote. According to documents, he had originally agreed to give Christina 10% of royalties that he earned from the hit single. I’m guessing 10% of those earning were worth more than he originally estimated.
