Justin Beiber may have recently got married to Hailey Baldwin in a New York registry office, but if reports are anything to go by, he stands to lose half of his $265m fortune to Baldwin if they go their separate ways as there was no prenup included in the marriage.
The engagement came out of nowhere. In May, Hailey was seen with Shawn Mendes at the Met Gala before Bieber reunited with Baldwin after splitting with first love Selena Gomez.
Justin Bieber's strained relationship with Selena Gomez goes back to 2010, so it took everyone by surprise when he put a ring on Hailey's finger after just one month of dating. While they had previously dated for a year from 2015 to 2016, Baldwin doesn't have the same level of history with the hitmaker as Gomez does, but that didn't stop the Biebs from proposing to her in a plush Bahamas resort.
Fast forward two months and the pair are now officially married, having legally wed in a courthouse in New York City on September 13.
An insider revealed to People. “They went ahead and did it without listening to anyone."
But the people they didn't listen to, or rather Justin didn't listen to, will no doubt be a tad nervous for the global star, who stands to lose half of his $265m fortune if their marriage goes south. With divorce rates being around 50% in America, such an outcome wouldn't be a surprise.
To put the newlywed's finances into perspective, Hailey Baldwin has an approximate net worth of $2 million, which as we've just detailed, is far less than Justin's.
Speaking to The Sun, an insider said, “They didn’t tell anyone on their teams what was going on and his people have been frantically trying to get his business affairs and finances in order."
While they have officially tied the knot, a more lavish wedding ceremony is rumored to be taking place in Canada next week.
What are your thoughts on this? Should Justin's team have a right to be concerned about there being no prenup involved in the marriage?
Or should these things not matter when two people are happily in love? Let us know your thoughts in the comments below.
