Jessica Simpson & Co: Hollywood’s new trend – no prenup!
It’s been days since Jessica Simpson announced her engagement to Eric Johnson and she’s already buzzing about the wedding ceremony! No official date has been set yet but it’s been revealed Jessica doesn’t want to make Eric sign a pre-nup before the nuptials. That’s so silly and naive of her!
I know Ms Simpson is romantic to the core but life is life and you never know for sure if their marriage works well for both of them and they don’t get divorced in, say, five-ten years (Jessica Simpson’s first marriage to Nick Lachey lasted for three years, while Eric Johnson has been married for five years before finalizing divorce in October 2010).
If we follow the pessimistic scenario, the one in which Jessica and Eric divorce in several years, due to lack of the pre-nup Eric will get half of Jessica’s fortune (as of now, Jessica’s worth $100 million) making him at least $50 million richer!
That’s something Jessica Simpson’s manager dad will never let happen. According to the insiders, as soon as this engagement euphoria peters out Papa Joe is going to insist on the pre-nup for his daughter and her fiance Eric Johnson.
At the moment, Joe is sitting back and being a great father, supporting his daughter and his future son-in-law. However, you can bet after all the excitement has died down, Joe is going to do everything in his power to make sure Jessica doesn’t walk down the aisle until Eric signs away any right he might have to Jessica’s enormous fortune,” an insider said.
Signing a pre-nup is what everybody thinks best for Jessica.
It’s ludicrous if [Jessica Simspon] doesn’t execute a prenup!” Family law expert Vikki Ziegler told Hollywood Life. “This is her second marriage; the divorce rate is closer to 64 percent in the second marriages.”
After all, Jessica must learn from her mistakes. Simpson didn’t have a pre-nup with first husband Nick Lachey and after they divorced in 2005 he became $10 million richer.
Don’t make the same mistake again Jess!
FYI, the newlyweds Katy Perry and Russell Brand who got married late last month and had one of the best celebrity weddings 2010, are also said to have no pre-nup.
Does it mean no-prenup is a new trend in Hollywood?
PS. Here are celebrities who had to lose quite a bulk of their fortune after divorcing without a pre-nup: Mel Gibson gave his ex wife Robin $450 million after the divorce; Guy Richie also got richer after divorcing Madonna in 2008 (allegedly, he got between $72 and 96 million from the singer).
