Their former lovebirds’ prenup ‘almost certainly protects all assets and income that either of them had prior to the marriage,’ Summers told the outlet.
The attorney also believes there would be a ‘limited’ division of their assets simply because their marriage was not that long.
‘When both spouses have financial success, chances are the prenup will specify that what she earned and acquired and vice versa will remain with them,’ he said to Page Six.
‘He had stock to protect here both before and during as did she,’ he said.
