Kim Kardashian And Kris Humphries Prenup Locked In, But What Does It Mean?

Kim K Prenup

Nobody is surprised that Kim Kardashian and her new hubby have drawn up a prenup. Well, that prenup is now official and signed by both parties.

So what does it actually entail? What does it all mean? What's the definition of this madness??

Most people probably assume it means that Kardashian's estimated $35 million net worth will now be protected against the double dribbling of an NBA player who is only worth somewhere between $8-16 million. Perhaps, but as we learned from Laura Zwicker, a family wealth planner at LA's Greenberg Glusker law firm, drawing up a pre-nup in a post-reality TV universe is a tad more complicated than just that.

How complicated are we talking?? We understand trying to protect yourself… but what happened to trusting in love??

For starters, Zwicker tells us not to assume that Humphries, an NBA free agent, is necessarily the loser here. The attorney points out that Kardashian has a knack for getting into all sorts of legal trouble from her business ventures, which means she could be one adverse judgment away from seeing her fortune seriously diminished. "He could actually benefit if it clearly delineated that debts and liabilities are actually hers," says Zwicker.

On the other hand, perhaps it's not Kim who needs the protection, but other family members who are entangled in business ventures with the 30-year-old personality. Under California law, increases in value of a joint venture during a marriage are considered a couple's community property, unless otherwise waived in the pre-nup. In other words, the deal may go well beyond protecting the $35 million or so in assets, it might reach further to safeguard the entire Kardashian fortune.

Protecting the other family members in the business ventures is smart. Protecting yourself from their legal troubles is too. Actually, anything that has to do with the fragile nature of reality television is smart.

Signing a prenup was actually probably the best move on both parts, though we like to think that they'll never need to use it and that their love will last forever and ever!

How do U guys feel about prenups? Necessary… or kind of offensive by not trusting your love will last??

    I hope he put's on 2 condom's, she's so gross



  2. 2

    A condom doesnt protect from herpes. It must be a funny sight to see him pee on her face, since he is about twice her hight.

    Re: Whatevers!!! – oh come on… what did she ever do to you…. besides look better ??

    LOOK BETTER!?!?, I dont even know what that means…
    I guess thats all it takes, you win.
    Perez, I'm starting to think youre getting paid to cover them

    trust in love? how stupid are you? when there is that kind of money at risk love will always be second on the list.

    I used to think he was stupid to be with her and wouldn't make good financial decisions because of "love", but after seeing him on Keeping Up with the Kardashians, I'm convinced that he's a lot smarter than he's letting on.

    He was hamming it up for the paparazzi and after her fits in Bora Bora STILL married her. So many people were saying that he was being played by her and her family, but I'm thinking they might be the ones who are getting played even more.

    She looks like a baby whale in that dress.
    I give this marriage 8 months. It will take that long for Chris to figure out that he is just a pawn in Kris's whoremongering.
    And did you hear that The Soup can't mention Kim's sex tape? Why not? A slut is a slut is a slut and should be called out on it all day and all night.

    yes they are good when u hate the person whos about to walk off with ur life savings (not that i had that occur as yet)

    the more i see 'lurch ' the more hunky he looks but the body language hes always leaning away from the midget
    basically here shes not pulling off the greek goddess look well more like dishevelled SHORT FAT slave girl

    Re: perez posse member 777 – I agree with you on the body language. He always seems far away from her and she usually looks more busy for the paps than to give some love to him, or even a smile.

    the point is all she wanted was to get married. jealous that her sister married before her and her other had a baby before her, she set her mind on getting married, and when you look like her it's not hard to find a guy to marry you. he was the first guy she dated seriously after she decided she wanted to get married. any woman who really is that desperate to get married just so they can say the got married by age 30 can go out and find a guy to marry. women who say they can't find a man to marry them subconsciously don't want to marry because there are lots of dopey men that will marry you if that's all you really want, and when you are hot and rich guys will put up with the other drama. men don't look at marriage like women do…once they decide they are ready, they'll marry the first good looking woman that comes along. if she turns them on and isn't too much of a headache that's all guys care about. women are the ones who over analyze it so much, with "he's the one" b.s.

    Kim has said "he's the one about every guy she has been with…she is so codependent on men it's pathetic. she has never been truly single/on her own and just jumps from one "love" to another so don't be surprised if this one fades out some day since she prob didn't put much thought into it other than marrying the first guy that was willing to marry her because she couldn't bear the thought of being 30 and single, my oh my! i just think it's ridiculous that they are calling her america's royalty…please. she only became famous because of the one thing we all know about, after first getting her photo taken thanks to paris hilton, and she is still a sex object, she knows how to use it for her gain and that is the only reason her whole family is now rich and famous. i will say at least they are good business people but to call her royalty is really far fetched

    Her first marriage lasted what, 4 years, and she wasn't even famous then. What do you think the expiration date is on this one?
