In an industry rife with infidelity, some Hollywood couples have allegedly included cheating clauses in their prenuptial agreements in order to protect them if their spouse is unfaithful. At least that is what has been reported in the media when some of Hollywood’s biggest names tied the knot!
We have to admit, these clauses make sense given how many beloved celebrity couples have fallen apart due to cheating. Infidelity is allegedly what caused Reese Witherspoon and Ryan Phillippe to split in 2007 after started dating his co-star Abbie Cornish. Then there is Jay-Z and Beyoncé who managed to come out the other side of his cheating scandal but not without devastating some fans in the process.
So we don’t blame other celebrity couples tying the knot for wanting to protect themselves from the same fate! Besides, if you’re super rich and you’re already hashing out a prenuptial agreement aimed at protecting assets in case of a divorce, why not just throw in a few extra lines in the to discourage infidelity?
Take Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie, for example. The couple started their relationship in 2004, while Pitt was still married to Jennifer Aniston, putting their romance at the center of one of the biggest cheating scandals in pop culture history.
So, when they finally tied the knot after 10 years together, it was reported that Jolie was determined to make sure she and the couple’s children were protected if history repeated itself. Those two may not have lasted, cheating clause or not, but some other stars are still going strong despite including their infidelity concerns in their prenups.
