Kandi had her lawyers carefully craft a prenuptial agreement that was meant to actually protect both she and Todd in the event of a divorce — but Todd’s lawyer wasn’t keen on having him sign it so quickly. . . or so the story line goes on the reality show. Apparently, he said he signed the prenup to prove once and for all his love for and commitment to Kandi.

9. Kanye West & Kim Kardashian
According to reports, the entire process for Kim and Kanye’s prenup was extremely painless and drama free and that Kanye didn’t even think they need one.

11. Roseanne Barr & Tom Arnold
Roseanne was so madly in love with Tom when they wed, that she actually fired her lawyer for even suggesting the couple sign a prenup. Big Mistake! After the marriage of only four years failed, Tom was awarded $50 million of Roseanne’s money.

She would only be entitled to spousal support from Lamar for half the length of their marriage, which would be less than two years and she will remain as the beneficiary on a $10 million life insurance policy Lamar has and that will remain for the rest of their lives. Other little perks in the prenup . . . $25K a month in support, the house, a new car at the end of every lease cycle, $5K a month for shopping, $1K a month for beauty care, and season court-side Lakers tickets for her whole family.

16. The Dream & Christina Milian
These two got married in September 2009 and filed for divorce in February of 2010. The Dream agreed to (without the advice of counsels) to visitation with their child as the parties can best work out. She will receive $10K monthly in child support, $3,500 monthly in alimony for two years or upon remarriage. They both got to keep their own possessions, jewelry, businesses and she got to keep her Mercedes G55. The only thing The Dream tried to back out of was an agreement pertaining to Justin Bieber’s “Baby” single which he co-wrote. According to documents, he had originally agreed to give Christina 10% of royalties that he earned from the hit single. I’m guessing 10% of those earning were worth more than he originally estimated.
17. Evelyn Lozada & Chad Johnson
The mini marriage between Chad and Evelyn only lasted around 42 days. Chad admitted that the two had a prenup and believed that it should be enforced — especially the part about who pays for the lawyers and stated that he wanted a judge to block Ev’s request that he foot the bill for her legal fees. According to Chad, there was a provision in the prenup in which the two sides agreed to pay their own way if they were to split up.
