Jennifer Aniston wants John Mayer to sign a prenup


Jennifer Aniston and John Mayer haven’t broken up, according to the National Enquirer. But their relationship is on rocky territory. The magazine claims they’re planning on getting married later this year, but there’s a major sticking point: Jen wants John to sign a prenup to protect her $150 million fortune, and John won’t do it. They don’t say that John’s in it for the money, but more that Jen has good reason to protect her assets because she’s got a lot of them. And she’s well aware of Mayer’s reputation. It sounds like the two have some trust issues.

Jennifer Aniston has found 150 million reasons not to rush into marriage with boyfriend John Mayer. The “Marley & Me” star and her rocker beau have hit a huge speed bump on the road to the alter – she’s demanding that the notorious womanizer sign a prenuptial agreement to protect her $150 million fortune, say sources.

But John is balking, and insiders are predicting the predicament could destroy the relationship. “Jen has serious reservations about diving into marriage with John,” a source close to the actress told The Enquirer. “She is very insecure, and at the top of her list of her worries is that John is using her to boost his own fame and fortune.

“So she’s insisting that John sign a prenup. His pride is wounded, and the dramam over all this is threatening to blow up their wedding plans, and even their relationship.” As the Enquirer reported in December, Jen – who turns 40 on Feb. 11 – told pals she and 21-year-old John are planning a star-studded wedding later this year.

“She’s on top of the world now professionally, and a prenup is a smart business move to protect her fortune. Even though she loves him, Jen is still unsure of John’s trustworthiness because of his reputation for having loved and left half the actresses in Hollywood. After her split with Brad, Jen has had serious trust issues – and for good reason.”

Gab as we do, the only people who can really know what’s going on in their relationship are the two people in it. Even the close confidants don’t have the entire picture. There must be something Jen sees in John that makes her want to look past his “love ‘em and leave ‘em” history. And she’s certainly not stupid, nor is she in denial about his player ways. She must think he’s changed to some extent or she wouldn’t be considering marrying him. Yet there’s obviously still some fear and lack of trust there.

Even if they were on completely solid ground, the disparity between their incomes is at least $125 million. It seems like a prenup is more than acceptable under those circumstances. They both deserve to be in a relationship where they can trust the other person. It seems to me like they should work on those issues before the focus on walking down the aisle.

    There’s only one reason not to sign.
    What the hell has to happen, to wake this girl up?

  2. Christianne says:

    John’s 31

  3. silentA says:

    “21-year-old John”

    Nope. He’s 31.
    I call bullshit on you, National Inquirer.

  4. Kaiser says:

    Doubt the whole thing – I suspect neither wants to marry.

  5. Mairead says:

    I don’t particularly like her and even I want him to sign one!

  6. geronimo says:

    Why is she persisting with this guy? Whether it’s true or not, the stuff we DO know makes it incredibly easy to believe. Seriously. Dump him.

  7. Susan says:

    You got to wonder how the article can be trusted at all when they can’t even get his age right! Anway. Who knows what is going on in this relationship. Jen is so private – look you had to use a picture from almost a year ago because there are basically none of them together out there – that the gossip rags are desperate for a story of them. Time will tell. Jen is doing her thing she won’t make any stupid moves – she has good reason to not trust men so she will be careful.

  8. dr.grrl says:

    aahhhh, the stench of desperation surrounds these two!

    are they both just emotionally retarded?art really imitates life, wasn’t JA character on friends driven by marriage and would stop at nothing to get it?

  9. Ash says:

    Hell yeah, I’d want him to sign one too! That’s trouble written all over those 2.

  10. Zoe says:

    I just realized that she’s been trying for HIS nose with all the surgeries, I was wondering who her “model” was… I was afraid for awhile that it was Ang. LOL!

    I thing Jennifer its too much woman for this guy, se has to take care for the things that earned, and if john doesnt want to sing a prenup, she shoudl send him to hell.

  13. PJ says:

    Did Brad and Jennifer have a prenup? They came to an amicable property settlement.

    Paul McCartney didn’t have a prenup with gold-digger Heather Mills, and still managed to keep his fortune intact when they divorced–with help from a very good lawyer.

    A prenup doesn’t necessarily mean you don’t trust your spouse-to-be, it just means you are realistic and have assets to protect.

    If a couple would break up over this, they weren’t very together in the first place. People who want to be together find a way to work it out.

  14. Diva says:

    No, dr. grrrl, Aniston’s Friends character was not driven by marriage at all. In fact, the show began with her running away from it. She was driven by money and possessions a little possibly, but not marriage.

    As a Friends geek, I had to clear that up. No specific reason for doing so, just had to. {=0)

  15. dr.grrl says:

    @ Diva

    thanks! i only watched the show when JA was obsessed by “joshua” when i think ross was getting married..

    this situation (JA/JM) just seems to smack of “competitve happiness”. if “ross”(BP) is married with babies, “rachel” seems desperate to one up him.

  16. May says:

    Of course, it’s not about trust issues alone.. it is good business sense for Jen. She would be completely stupid not to…

  17. May says:

    Of course, it’s not about trust issues alone.. it is good business sense for Jen. She would be completely stupid not to… she deserves to be happy and if he makes her happy, go with it, but do it with your head – prenup!!

  18. BluePlanet says:

    I agree – a prenup is not necessarily a trust issue. Should a marriage break up, there are other people in one’s life to protect financially. It’s not always just about yourself.

  19. NotBlonde says:

    Can people quit it with the “desperate” and “insecure” nonsense? None of her outward actions indicate that she is desperate for anything. I’m sure she has some insecurities, but that has nothing to do with signing a pre-nup. Those little contracts are extremely important for marriages between the very wealthy. It makes perfect sense for someone in her position to want a pre-nup.

  20. DD says:

    If they get married it will surely end in divorce. Pre-nups should be the law in hollywood.

  21. Trashaddict says:

    She’s worth how much $$$$? And why??????

  22. dardar says:

    think her asset is near $100 million!! and tt totally explain why she needs a prenup.. :p

  23. snappyfish says:

    I agree that these two reek desperation. He won’t marry her and I doubt she wants to marry him.

    However this little relationship does keep the two of them gossip fodder and I think the saying goes “any publicity is good publicity”

  24. czarina says:

    I have seriously reservations as to the truth of any of this–where the relationship is now, where it’s headed and whether a prenup is even something that has been brought up.
    Nevertheless, taking the entire article with a truck-load of salt, I am sure JA is much too smart to go into a marriage without a pre-nup.
    She may not have had one with Brad, but then he was worth more than she was when they married, and I think their very amicable divorce is a testament to JA’s class.
    Still having been once burnt, I doubt she would impulsively go into any marriage, much less without legal security.

  25. YO says:

    she has to be carfully about what is her next step cuase, they brook up once and it wasnt nice, so she must trust in herself and sing a prenup… dont you think???

  26. Jennifer’s astrology shows that she’s being quite careful before jumping into a serious relationship. I’m inclined to believe that a prenup for her is a kind of test for John to pass (or not).

  27. Whatever says:

    Careful! Careful would be not hanging around a child and expecting it to behave like a man! DA! Prenup my hell if in fact she is even taking it this far would show she is a desperate woman and I feel very sorry for her.. I used to not like her but now I actually feel bad for her she has mental issues, its really sad:(
