The prenuptial agreement between Catherine Zeta-Jones and Michael Douglas


When Catherine Zeta-Jones and Michael Douglas got married in 2000, Zeta-Jones was “totally” in love but was “concerned” that Douglass had cheated on his first wife repeatedly, including with his wife's best friend. Therefore, in case of divorce, Zeta-Jones will get $1.5 million for every year of marriage. She had asked for almost $5 million a year, but accepted a lower figure in exchange for a lump sum of cash up front and a $5 million “straying fee” if Douglass cheats on her. In return, Douglas also got a confidentiality clause from Zeta-Jones, barring her from ever revealing personal details of their marriage.
