Last week, it was reported that India’s Ministry of Women and Child Development plans to bring into the legal system what was till now a western concept –– the prenuptial agreement. Prenups, incidentally, is not an unheard-of term in India. Media outlets often write about Hollywood couples opting for such agreements. There have been the odd cases of couples in India going in for those deals as well.
1. Michael Douglas and Catherine Zeta-Jones
Catherine gets $2.8 million for every year of their marriage if the couple gets divorced. She gets an extra $5 million if Michael cheats on her.
2. Kim Kardashian West and Kanye West
If they divorce, Kim will get $1 million for every year of their marriage. She will also get their Bel Air mansion (LA) and all the jewellery that Kanye bought for her when they were married. She is also the beneficiary of Kanye’s $20 million life-insurance policy.
3. Beyoncé and Jay Z
Beyoncé’s prenup says that she will get $5 million for every child she bears. If they divorce, she gets $1 million for every year of marriage.
4. Jessica Biel and Justin Timberlake
Jessica has had an infidelity clause included in her prenup because of Justin’s "philandering reputation". So, whoever cheats in their marriage has to pay the other partner $5,00,000.
5. Nicole Kidman and Keith Urban
If the couple divorces, Keith gets $4,60,000 for every year of their marriage, but on the condition that he doesn’t use drugs again. Keith is a former addict.
