The final pre-nup details were worked out last week before Kim Kardashian and Kanye West got married. The pre-nup covers their 150 million dollar estate. Kanye is on the hook for 10 million dollars if he is caught cheating (with another woman or man) and he is protected for the next 3 years if Kim grows tired and walks away. Kim gets nothing if the union is as short-lived as her last one. However, if this becomes Kim’s longest marriage yet, she will “earn” 1 million dollars per year from Kanye. He will also owe her 5 million dollars for each child she delivers during the marriage. Meaning, North is out of the equation

See it for yourself!

Friends star David Schwimmer helped police investigate a stabbing that occurred outside his Manhattan home. The crime took place in the early Monday morning, when a three-person dispute turned violent on Schwimmer's block. According to the New York Daily News's sources, the altercation arose after Schwimmer's next-door neighbor and a prostitute were surprised by a thief attempting to steal the neighbor's computer and the neighbor pulled a box cutter, only to lose to the intruder, who slashed him in the face. The fight spilled out into the street, where it was captured by Schwimmer's security cameras. The Friends star shared the footage with the NYPD, who later made an arrest.
