People has reported that the RHONY couple did sign a prenup, and that the divorce should be finalized quickly. The prenup news should come as no surprise, considering how much money is at stake, and how many questions surrounded Tom before they tied the knot. LuAnn even told People last summer that there would be a prenup.
"Oh yeah well we both have assets," she said last August. "He’s got a big business and assets and so do I."
Indeed, LuAnn has a net worth of around $25 million, thanks in part to her past modeling career and her Bravo salary. Tom, meanwhile, is also believed to be worth millions thanks to his job as President and CEO of the print buying agency Smart Source LLC. They reportedly didn't have any shared assets, so they will probably each just keep what they had before the nuptials.
But they will have some things to divide up, namely the wedding gifts they just received from their friends and family. "Usually men don't care about them but if he's pissed off or seeking retribution, they may fight over the wedding gifts," divorce attorney Vikki Ziegler, who isn't representing Tom or LuAnn, told E! News.
But it doesn't sound like that will be the case. The couple is instead trying to remain as amicable as possible. Tom even defended his estranged wife amid a Daily Mail report that she was violent and unfaithful during their marriage.
"The Daily Mail story is completely false," his rep told E! News. "LuAnn and Tom spoke on the phone about it this morning and they are both upset about it. A lawyer's letter to the Daily Mail has been sent."
LuAnn has similarly dismissed allegations that Tom cheated on her. "I do not think Tom cheated on me, definitely not," LuAnn told Page Six. "God knows he’s got himself in some trouble in the past, but I don’t believe that continued [while we were married]."
Instead, sources say LuAnn and Tom split up simply because they had different ideas about what a marriage should be. "He wanted to live his bachelor's life too. He's never been married," a source told E! News. "She wanted a marriage, he wanted a part-time marriage."
