If you're a top celebrity, being married does not mean the same thing as being married like it does for ordinary people. And at the end of the day, this is usually because more pennies are at stake if everything comes crumbling down one day.

This is why A-listers sometimes make sure to protect themselves if their relationships don't make it to the very end. Here are some of the weirdest (but strangely brilliant) pre-nuptial clauses signed by celebrities before they tied the knot:

1. Nicole Kidman & Keith Urban

If these two divorce, Kidman is prepared to give $640,000 for every year that they were married. Yet, if Urban has a relapse and goes back to drugs (he was famously addicted to cocaine for years!), the contract becomes void.

Well that's one way to ensure he stays clean!

2. Khloe Kardashian & Lamar Odom

When the couple married, the entire prenup was mostly in Khloe's favor. Should she ever split from Lamar, she would get $25,000 per month in spousal support for half the length of their marriage. Khloe also gets $500,000 for each year that they were married and (get this!) $6,000 for "beauty upkeep and shopping", the house and a new car!

Oh, and she also makes sure that her family have passes for LA Lakers games for the rest of their lives. Not bad.

3. Beyonce & Jay Z

When Queen B popped out little Blue Ivy, she was absolutely overjoyed and not only because she had finally become a mother. In fact, her prenup states that for every baby that she brings into the world, she gets a whopping $5 million. And if the pair get divorced, she also gets $1 million for every year she was married to Jay Z.

As for him -- well, he gets to sleep in the same bed as Beyonce so I guess he better not complain.

4. Jessica Simpson & Tony Romo

Although these two didn't actually ever get married, they certainly had plans to. Apparently, a ridiculous pre-nup was even drawn up with a shocking clause that entitled Romo $500,000 for every pound that Jessica gained over 135lbs while they were married.

Good on you Jessica for calling it quits -- you wouldn't want to marry a guy who loved your only for your physical appearance anyway!

5. Kim Kardashian & Kanye West

If Kimye decide to go their separate ways, Kimmy receives $1 million for every year until it reaches a cap of $10 million. She will also be the one to keep their Bel Air mansion, all of Kanye's gifts over the years, any income she makes through Keeping Up with the Kardashians, her clothing line and money generated through all public appearances.

It's unclear how Kanye really benefits from the pre-nup, but he has added a clause relating to Kris Kenner making career decisions that affect little North West, and himself.

6. Justin Timberlake & Jessica Biel

We all know that back in the day, JT was famously known as 'Trouser Snake' for his inability to keep his little guy in his pants. So naturally, when Jessica Biel finally agreed to marry him, she put in a clause that stated that if he cheated on her, she would receive $500,000.

If I were her, I'd probably ask for more to be honest.

7. Mark Zuckerberg & Priscilla Chan

Ok, this one really takes the cake. According to sources, Facebook boss was dating Priscilla for nine years, during which a kind of pre-nup contract was in place before they were even married. The terms of the relationship were as follows:

“One date per week, a minimum of a hundred minutes of alone time, not in his apartment and definitely not at Facebook.”

No dates on Facebook then?
