A judge recently finalized the divorce of Christina Milian, known for the hit song "Dip it Low," and The-Dream, the Grammy-winning record producer who has helped artists such as Rihanna, Britney Spears and Beyonce score big hits.
The couple married in 2009, and according to MediaTakeOut.com, did not sign a prenuptial agreement. In July 2010, TMZ reported that The-Dream presented Milian with a divorce settlement document when she was confined to bed, nine months pregnant with the couple's child. Milian asked a judge to throw out that agreement, in which she waived alimony and property rights, on grounds that she had not been in an appropriate frame of mind to sign it, given her condition at the time.
The terms of the couple's divorce were ultimately determined by mutual agreement, according to The Associated Press.
In reporting that the couple did not sign a prenuptial agreement, MediaTakeOut estimated The-Dream's fortune to be worth tens of millions of dollars. CelebrityNetWorth.com put the figure at $60 million.
While it appears Milian and The-Dream were able to come to terms in their divorce, prenuptial agreements certainly smooth the difficult process of ending a relationship, even for those whose assets are not so substantial.
