It may seem unromantic, but when millionaire celebrities get married, they need to protect their assets. And with nearly half of all marriages ending in divorce – and a much higher percentage in the entertainment industry – it’s just smart planning to hope for the best and plan for the worst with a prenuptial agreement.
But just like A-listers don’t treat marriage the same way regular people do, they also don’t treat their prenups the same. Over the years, celebs from Mark Zuckerberg to Justin Timberlake have included some truly wild prenup rules before tying the knot.
Jessica Simpson wasn’t allowed to gain weight if she married Tony Romo
Though it’s unclear on whether pregnancy weight gain factored in, Jessica Simpson and NFL star Tony Romo dreamed up one of the most surprising prenup stipulations.
Apparently, the former reality star had to pay Romo $500,000 per pound gained while she was married to him plus promised she’d never weigh “more than 135 pounds” during their marriage.
Luckily, these two split before they could walk down the aisle and put the prenuptial agreement into action. Meanwhile, Simpson’s current husband Eric Johnson loves his wife unconditionally regardless of her weight.
Sadly, Khloé Kardashian and Lamar Odom had to invoke their prenup during their 2013 breakup. The reality star didn’t get a huge chunk of Odom’s $30 million fortune, but she did walk away with $2 million, courtside tickets to the Lakers games, a new car whenever her lease runs out, a $5,000 per month shopping budget, and a $1,000 monthly beauty allowance, Radar Online reported.
