Madonna Didn't Have A Prenup
by Paul Cashmere - June 26 2008
The Madonna / Guy Ritchie divorce is going to hurt the pop star. The word is that Madonna and Guy Ritchie do not have a prenuptial agreement.
Under UK law, the general rule is that in divorce, the assets are split 50/50.
This is indeed going to be costly for the material girl.
Madonna's is estimated to be worth more than $600 million dollars. Guy, while successful, is not worth anything near that figure.
The Ritchie's' divorce will be a major lottery win for Guy, no matter what happens.
The couple married 7 years ago.
This week, Madonna is reported to have hired Fiona Shackleton to represent her in the divorce.
Shackleton was the one who made sure Heather Mills didn't have a leg to stand on after her divorce with Paul McCartney.
Shackleton also represented Prince Charles in his divorce from Diana.
( So the rumours were true that there was trouble in the Ritchie family. Another marriage bites the dust, sad but things happen.)
