[Vanity Fair] Laura Wasser, lawyer to Hollywood’s rich and famous, was once asked by a client whether he could add a clause to his pre-nup stipulating that his wife lose her baby weight in a certain period of time if she wanted to receive her annual bonus. (Yes, wife bonuses are a thing.) After practicing law for two decades—during which time she represented Johnny Depp, Angelina Jolie, Britney Spears, multiple Kardashians, top athletes, and countless other high-profile clients—it takes a lot to shock Wasser. But this request did make her flinch.
“I said, ‘Yeah, dude. We can’t put that in,” Wasser said, laughing, on the phone in August. “Because California’s a no-fault state, you cannot base any kind of a pre-nuptial agreement on somebody’s behavior . . . so I didn’t have to really address how offensive it was to add that to a pre-nup. I get wanting to [put clauses] in about adultery or drug relapses. But even if we could, I wouldn’t put that in. That’s gross.”
