For those of you that forgot about the pre-nup Jay-Z and Beyonce signed, here's some of the most notable items:
- Jay-Z pays Beyonce $10 million if the marriage ends after two years, and $1 million a year for each further year she remains in the marriage, up to fifteen years.
- He promised to pay her an additional $5 million for each child she bears for him-for her loss of income during pregnancy and child-rearing years.
- Beyonce would be granted access to their private jet and a fleet of cars, which includes a $1 million 1959 Rolls Royce convertible
Of course there's probably other minutiae in there we will never know about (and shouldn't, they should have some privacy) but with Beyonce's announcement on Sunday that she's pregnant, I'd just like to point out that not only is she pregnant but $5 million dollars richer. For a woman that wants to have kids, that's a hell of a deal.
Congrats to Jay-Z and Beyonce on the baby and I can't wait to hear the estimates of how much these magazines will offer them for the first pictures of the baby. I'm sure those numbers will be astronomical.
Sidebar: This makes that "you got baby money" line that Jay threw at Birdman just a little more hilarious. Baby doesn't have a billie but he might have $5 million ("baby money"). And "ni99as ain't got my lady money" is even funnier when you think that Beyonce is gonna make $5 million when the baby's born and it's $5 million from Jay himself. More on that little "tiff" (lol) between Jay, Birdman, and Lil Wayne here....
