At least when it comes to marriage, former Beatle Paul McCartney has appeared to have not learned his lesson when it comes to protecting his fortune. McCartney was married to his first wife Linda from 1969 until she passed away from breast cancer in 1998. They had four children together. Then McCartney met Heather Mills, whom he married in 2003. Three years later, they separated. Their divorce came in 2008 and ended up with Mills getting $50 million.
McCartney is set to marry for a third time; this time to New Yorker Nancy Shevell, whom he met in the fall of 2007. The pair reported earlier this summer that they were going to marry, and the ceremony should be taking place within the next few months at Marylebone Town Hall in London. It is the second marriage for Shevell.
McCartney will not be using a prenuptial agreement. What do you think about the former Beatle’s decision? Our Houston prenuptial agreement lawyers would like to know. McCartney would obviously still be financially well off if he does not use a prenup for his marriage to Shevell, but if they end up splitting, New York law could require him to give as much as a third of his fortune to Shevell. Like everyone else, celebrities never know what the future holds for them, so heading into a third marriage without a prenup may end up costing McCartney a lot down the line.
