Celebrities who married non-celebrities
October 4, 2011 by staff
First, we had news that Paul McCartney is not signing a prenuptial agreement with the third wife-to-be Nancy Shevell. Now, we’ve heard speculation about Demi Moore and Ashton Kutcher matrimonial after allegedly cheating Kutcher. A divorce battle that could put a combined and 290 million on the table for discussion about whether there is a prenuptial agreement in place.
The Moore-Kutcher mess is wild guess here, but McCartney aside a prenuptial agreement has been widely reported from the Daily Mail wrote about it in May. Steven W. Goldfeder, a matrimonial lawyer at Blank Rome LLP, who has represented Donald Trump and Howard Stern on his divorce, can only scratch his head. McCartney’s second wife, Heather Mills, got your ticket to a divorce settlement and 50 million in 2008.
“To leave hundreds of millions of dollars vulnerable not a good choice,” said Goldfeder, who does not represent McCartney.
However, the lawyer said he admired the former Beatle to continue believing, as songs of the Fab Four song declared that “all you need is love.” Goldfeder and admitted that getting his intention to sign on the dotted line can be uncomfortable, even if you are one of the most famous in the world.
McCartney will be financially sound, no matter what you pay in the event the marriage ends. However, from the standpoint of a lawyer, “There is an option that would advise a client to do,” he said.
Trump and the investor Ron Perelman are examples of the mega-rich types that have been protected prenuptial Goldfeder said (though Perelman has surrendered and an estimated 158 million to four former, according to New York magazine).
The price of fame would walk down the hall who did not sign the prenuptial and coughed up the mountains of moolah: media mogul Rupert Murdoch paid 1.7 billion and separated from his wife of 32 years, Anna Murdoch. Of course, nobody was really taking into account prenuptial agreements in the 1970s. But among recent cases in which the parties should have known better: Tiger Woods paid a reported $ 110 million and Elin Nordegren, Michael Jordan lost $ 168 million for Juanita Jordan, Neil Diamond fell to 150 million dollars Marcia Murphey (and who is getting married again without a prenup?) and ponied much as Madonna and Guy Ritchie 92 million. In the latter case, Ritchie and there were 45 million of his own but still had the right to a piece of the material wealth of the Material Girl.
Protection for those who have much to protect
That is a worrying aspect of the commitment of McCartney, 68 years old. Shevell, a trucking heiress 51 years old and a board member of a major transportation service, has his own fortune, but certainly not a Beatles fortune level. One could argue that a third of McCartney’s assets, if your residence in the state of New York, unless a contract specifically eliminates the possibility, Goldfeder said.
This is usually the point where the price of fame in the bonds advice for our readers, but McCartney is not a normal person and prenuptial not for everyone. Even if you are doing and 70,000 a year and have a house, general Goldfeder not recommend a prenuptial agreement. They are mostly for the rich at any age, and young and rich trying to protect the family money, the lawyer said. They are also for entrepreneurs who are building a company that will be worth a lot of loot someday.
If you fit any of these categories, you and your beloved must negotiate a prenuptial agreement with lawyers representing you individually, Goldfeder advised. You do not want the “no money” wife crying that he or she had not read the contract or was forced to sign. Or worse, could be handled as Steven Spielberg, who thought to write a prenuptial agreement in a paper napkin with Amy Irving would do the trick. Agreement and took a 100 million – a sum alien in 1989 – to prove him wrong.
The only protection McCartney, published sources have said, is a piece of paper that ensures the confidence of their children are maintained. But you have to wonder if Sir Paul is the inclusion of clauses others without the knowledge of the media. Celebrity monumental status of confidentiality must be assured that prevent a former chattering, Goldfeder said.
In the case of Moore and Kutcher, handshakes has begun over how to divide-se-by-the-middle in California divorce law would affect his fate. But what was done legally before they are caught six years ago is done. There is no way to undo.
Sir Paul can still protect yourself. A valid prenuptial agreement does not necessarily kill the romance between two mature adults with previous marital experience. Often, an agreement with a sliding scale does the trick, Goldfeder said. Works: A deal could read that if a couple has been married for five years or less, the spouse who is not wealthy would, for example, one million per year
hooked. (If that McCartney would be much more.) “That way, as long as the divorce comes, you know the check you have to write and there is nothing to fight,” Goldfeder said.
Perhaps a prenuptial agreement is what McCartney and his girlfriend really need to be “All Together Now”.
