Gossip Through Gossip

{March 20, 2008}   The one where a divorce pays off


We have all heard about the trouble that comes with a divorce, but you can add plenty more of problems if one or both of you are celebrities. If you are a celebrity, then a pre-nup should be a must. Not just because it saves you from all of the troubles in court, but because both parties have a set agreement of how the money is split.

Celebrities should learn from other stars who have made the mistake of not getting pre-nups:

1. Paul McCartney and Heather Mills: After four years of marriage, it was decided in March of 2008, after their divorce, that Mills was going to receive 50 million dollars. This meant that she made more than 12 million dollars per year that they were married.

2. Michael Jordan and Juanita Jordan: They were married for 17 years, had 3 children together, and it was settled in 2007 that Juanita would get a settlement of 168 million dollars. They has been said to be the biggest settlement of celebrity history and proves that even though you believe you will spend the rest of your life with someone and create a family with that person, it doesn’t mean that it will last forever.

3. Britney Spears and Kevin Federline: After 2 years of marriage and two children, Federline received 1 million dollars plus half of what ever property they sold. Even after their divorce, Federline went from a back-up dancer who was not known by anyone, to a rapper, actor, and celebrity. He became rich and famous only because of the woman he married.

These incidents prove that taking procautions is never a bad thing to do. It’s true that the other person will think that you don’t trust them, bit it the end, it will all be worth it.
