In a case demonstrating how a prenuptial agreement can smooth the difficult process of ending a relationship, 45-year-old Bubba the Love Sponge Clem, a popular radio shock jock, and his wife of four years, 37-year-old Heather Clem, are divorcing.
The two wed in January 2007 in St. Petersburg, Florida. Wrestling and reality TV star Hulk Hogan was Clem's best man and Howard Stern was in attendance. Prior to the ceremony, the couple signed a prenuptial agreement that will now govern how their assets will be divided.
While the prenuptial agreement specifics will remain private, a court filing says it provides for "economic and other entitlements that are fair and reasonable given the circumstances of the parties," Tampa Bay Online reports.
The couple also has agreed not to publicly discuss the circumstances of the divorce. They are splitting on grounds that the marriage is "irretrievably broken," according to a court filing. In a recent appearance on Howard Stern's radio show, Bubba said his heavy workload contributed to the divorce, TBO said.
Rock star John Mellencamp and other celebrities have relied on prenuptial agreements during recent divorce proceedings, but prenups are a wise decision for any couple considering marriage.
