Eddie Murphy Calls Up Pre-Nup as Divorce Heats Up

Oct 05, 2005 | 7:25am EDT

Funnyman Eddie Murphy is recalling a 12-year-old pre-nuptial agreement with his estranged wife Nicole as their divorce gets messy.

In court papers filed by the Shrek star, Murphy insists the couple's "premarital agreement" is "valid and enforceable" and he intends to use it to make sure he doesn't lose a valuable chunk of his fortune to his soon-to-be ex.

And the bitter comedian is calling for his and Nicole's kids to be kept away from his estranged wife's new man, businessman Alan Daniels.

In the divorce papers, he insists, "Nicole Murphy shall be restrained and enjoined from having the children in the physical presence of Alan F. Daniels."

The couple, who split in August, will also be battling over two New York homes, worth a combined $37 million, and a Beverly Hills, Los Angeles estate, worth upwards of $10 million.
