Social media prenup

CBS Philadelphia - A popular new trend is the ‘social media prenup.’ A typical social media clause states that couples can’t post nude or embarrassing photos that might harm their significant other’s reputation.

“It’s just a way for people to really put down on paper what the expectations are that after you’re divorced or when you’re in the midst of a divorce that you’re going to treat each other with respect,” says Aaron Weems, partner at the law firm Fox Rothchild.

While social media clauses are new, prenuptial agreements are legally binding and the penalty in this case is usually monetary.

Social media prenups are not just for celebrities or high-profile couples.

“It’s for anybody that has a business that’s really built upon and relies upon their personal brand, whether it’s an interior designer or an attorney,” Weems says. “These types of things are important and can result on people losing their jobs and their livelihood.”

According to the American Academy of Matrimonial Lawyers, more than 80 percent of divorce attorneys say the involvement of social networking in divorce proceedings is on the rise.

Clothing retailer Abercrombie & Fitch said it would offer "substantial payment" to MTV's The Jersey Shore's cast members to stop wearing the brand on air. "We are deeply concerned that Mr. Sorrentino's association with our brand could cause significant damage to our image. We understand that the show is for entertainment purposes, but believe this association is contrary to the aspirational nature of our brand, and may be distressing to many of our fans," an Abercrombie & Fitch spokesperson said in a statement. "We have also extended this offer to other members of the cast, and are urgently waiting a response."
