Whether you like it or not, marriage is first and foremost a contract. And with divorce rates on the rise, prenuptial agreements have become a ceremony staple for almost any couple with money. In the celebrity world, prenups are pretty much a requirement when two Hollywood starlets decide to tie the knot. Both sides want to protect what they've got, regardless of how unromantic the gesture may be. In fact, some even believe Hollywood's richest are to thank for the growth of the prenup business. Stars are known for defining what's trendy and cool, but who would have thought legally binding contracts would be all the rage?

With a boat load of cash, celebrities want to ensure that all their branded efforts don't get snatched out from underneath them in a nasty divorce they never thought was coming. Huge piles of cash are definitely negotiated in their prenups, but the contract assures these celebrities aren't paying more than they need to.The most shocking part of these prenups isn't even the money itself, but the details around the money. "Lifestyle clauses" and other weird euphemisms hold these famous people reliable for stuff like cheating or drinking. If you were already a little turned off by the whole concept of marriage, just wait until you see some of the most scandalous details of celebrity prenups.
