11 Celebrity Couples Who Had Way Too Much Faith In Their Relationships

In case you didn't know by now, Jersey Shore star Snooki is finally married. It's been a long time coming, but it's a little surprising to hear reports that she didn't sign a prenup. You would think that with all their riches a prenuptial agreement would be a given for most celebrities. But that clearly wasn’t a prerequisite to saying "I do" for Snooki and Jionni, plus these 10 famous couples who passed on the prenup.

Prince William & Kate Middleton

Apparently, there’s no mixing business with royalty because Prince William passed on the prenup when he married Kate Middleton.

Katy Perry & Russell Brand

No nasty, mud-slinging battles over money for this couple. Perry and Brand bypassed the prenup, and Brand even turned down $20 million he was due to receive after the couple split.

Paul McCartney & Nancy Shevell

The Beatles singer still has a carefree outlook on prenups, even after footing a huge divorce settlement to his second wife Heather Mills. Still, this didn’t stop him from passing up the prenup in his third marriage to wife Nancy Shevell.

Nick Lachey & Jessica Simpson

The former reality TV couple’s decision to forego a prenup resulting in a dispute over finances. After they divorced, Lachey walked away with less than half of the money the couple earned throughout their 3-year marriage.

Porsha Williams & Kordell Stewart

The absence of a prenuptial agreement didn’t keep this Real Housewives of Atlanta star from pursuing a divorce settlement. Unfortunately, Williams’ efforts proved futile as she didn’t receive any money from her ex.

Madonna & Guy Ritchie

The Material Girl was forced to come off quite a few of her riches when she divorced Ritchie. A prenup might have kept her from paying her ex $90 million.

Harrison Ford & Melissa Mathison

This is the classic case of no prenuptial agreement gone wrong — at least for Ford. The Star Wars actor paid his ex-wife $118 million when the couple divorced.

Nas & Kelis

Perhaps if Nas and Kelis had a prenup in place, it may have shortened the drawn-out court battles the two engaged in after they parted ways in 2009.
