Let this be a lesson: don’t let your prenup expire. That’s exactly what happened to Chris Rock, and the comedian is definitely paying the price. Rock filed for divorce from his longtime partner Malaak Compton-Rock in early 2015. Unfortunately for him, the prenup he prepared 20 years before had just expired. According to the New York Post, Compton-Rock decided to seek out a large lump of change. Rock, who is worth about $70 million, will likely pay big time for this blunder.
Sadly, Rock took all the precautions he could when preparing a prenup. Unfortunately for him, the statute of limitations on the document expired just in time for his wife to cash in.
Tiger & Elin
Tiger Woods and his ex-wife, Elin, officially divorced in 2010. But according to Fox News, Woods tried to win her back by promising a $200 million prenup for their next go ’round. Media outlets claimed that Elin was even entertaining the idea, but only if a $350 million anti-cheating clause was included in the contract.
After Tiger Woods got caught serial cheating on his wife, there was no way Elin Woods was letting her sex addict of a husband off the hook. The Swedish model raked in $110 million from divorce proceedings, but jaws dropped when reports came out that Woods was trying to get her back with even more money. Elin ultimately proved she had a good head on her shoulders and rejected the offer. The two have remained apart ever since.
Following her divorce from basketball player Kris Humphries, the two parted with most of their personal assets in tact. Kardashian took the same precautions when she hyphenated “West” to the end of her last name, but Kanye didn’t think any of it was all that important. “The entire process for the prenup for Kim and Kanye has been extremely easy, and relatively drama free. Kanye didn’t even think the couple needed a prenup, and was ready to give Kim carte blanche to all of his financial assets,” one insider shared with Radar Online. On top of that, Kim will receive $1 million for every year the two remain married, with a cap at $10 million. Oh, and she gets to keep all those fancy gifts Kanye showers her with.
When you’re as rich as a Kardashian, you definitely want to draw the lines on what’s yours. Especially considering your marriage might only make it 72 days.
