And why should she? According to the hard-hitting journalists over at Gawker.com, who obtained Charlie and Brooke’s prenup, Brooke is being paid a substantial sum every year to stay married to the hard-partying actor who is reportedly worth over $16 million. However, considering that Charlie is allegedly hooking up with an escort and the two are living apart, Gawker went ahead and added up what Brooke would walk away with in the event the couple splits.

Upon wedding Charlie in May 2008, Brooke received a $500,000 payment. (Not too shabby for a wedding present from your husband, right?) However, in return, she signed away her right to any of Charlie’s other earnings, like his hefty Two and a Half Men salary, which means she wouldn’t be entitled to spousal support. (Although, child support is still an option, as the couple had twins in March 2009 and the subject wasn’t broached in their original prenup.) She also receives a yearly “anniversary payment” of $300,000 for every year they are married as well as an increasing share in their Beverly Hills home, which may be reason enough for Brooke to stick with Charlie for a few years longer.
