A And C-Rod's Pre-Nup: Is It Legally Valid?

I’ve been paging through this short divorce filing by Cynthia Rodriguez, which was filed this morning in Miami.

It’s all the standard stuff: custody of the children, child support, life and health insurance and property of their Coral Gables residence and everything in it.

But there is one surprise, which this business reporter is interested in and it’s the very last part of the filing.

20. Antenuptial Agreement: On October 3, 2002, the parties executed a “document” titled “Antenuptial Agreement.” A determination as to the validity or enforceability of the agreement requires additional investigation and discovery.

What C-Rod’s lawyers are saying is that there’s a chance, they believe, that the pre-nup the two signed--a month before they were married in Nov. 2002--might not be legally valid. I’m having a hard time believing that this could be the case. But I guess it might be worth including.

Since they were married A-Rod made $115 million on the field, with a likely $20 million more in endorsements.
