When you are a celebrity, a prenuptial agreement pretty much goes hand in hand with wedding arrangements. But when Justin Bieber shocking tied the knot with Haley Baldwin last month, he oddly decided against a prenup, leaving his vast fortune up for grabs in the event of a split.
Despite denying the wedding ever happened, Bieber and Baldwin got hitched in New York City in September. Jeffrey Quinn, a minister who works at Nyack College, officiated the wedding. Per courthouse records, Bieber’s friend Josh Mehl, was on hand to witness the ceremony. Mehl goes to the same church as Bieber back in Los Angeles.

While it sounds like Bieber and Baldwin were thrilled to tie the knot, they did not work out a prenup ahead of the ceremony.
According to TMZ, the two contacted a lawyer in New York about drafting a prenup, but it was too late to get one worked out before the wedding. Instead of waiting for their attorneys to draft an agreement, they exchanged vows. The two can still sign a postnuptial agreement, but they have not made any move in that direction.
An inside source claims that Bieber is blinded by love and does not think a postnuptial agreement is necessary. As of this year, Bieber’s estimated worth is upwards of $250 million. Baldwin’s net worth, meanwhile, is a lowly few million.
If the two never sign a postnup, then it is possible that Bieber could lose hundreds of millions in the divorce.
“Since they began dating, Justin has been 100 percent committed,” an insider dished, adding that they both “feel confident about their relationship.”
Justin Bieber and Hailey Baldwin have not commented on the prenup rumors. The two are reportedly planning on having a formal church wedding for friends and family, but they have not announced when that will take place.
