Secretive newlyweds, Jay-Z and Beyonce, have settled a prenuptial agreement that could result in a $25 million payday for "Mrs. Carter." This news comes on the heels of Jigga's sealed Live Nation deal worth $150 Million.

According to the National Enquirer, Beyonce (born Beyonce Knowles) has inked a prenup deal with her new husband Jay-Z (born Shawn Carter) that could pay the R&B diva up to $25 million. Bey, 26, reported to be worth $100 million, will gain more money the longer she stays married to Jay. The prenup calls for Jay-Z to pay Beyonce $10 million if the marriage ends after two years, and a million a year for every extra year she remains in the marriage, up to 15-years.

In addition to cash payments the agreement also includes a few of Hov's prized possessions. According to the report, Beyonce would be granted access to their private jet and a fleet of cars, which includes a $1 million 1959 Rolls Royce convertible. Hov has promised to pay Bey an additional $5 million for each child she bears for him-for her loss of income during pregnancy and child-rearing years.

As SOHH previously reported, after much speculation and a six-year long relationship, the couple officially tied the knot on April 4. The pair was said to having matching "4" tattoos on their ring fingers, to signify their wedding day and the birthday's of both superstars (Beyonce on September 4th and Jay December 4th).


In related news, Jay-Z, 38, has finalized his deal with Live Nation. In one of the most lucrative deals in music history, the rapper/entrepreneur has sealed the $150 million contract and will launch his new imprint Roc Nation. It was reported, that Beyonce would join her husband in his latest venture as a talent scout and is making plans for an early retirement.
