According to Us Weekly, the exes agreed to honor the terms of their prenuptial agreement less than a week before officially finalizing their union.

Lawrence also retains all of his own royalties.
People reports that neither star has filed for spousal support, as they have both agreed to abide by their prenuptial agreement.

In addition, the duo agreed last week to divide their two properties equally. Burke will get one house, according to People, while Lawrence will keep the other.
Burke filed for divorce earlier this year, just three years after she tied the knot with Lawrence.
Taking to social media to share the news, the Dancing with the Stars artist wrote: “I know I’ve always said I’m an open book with you guys, I aspire to be that, and in writing this I’ve realized that there really is no easy way to announce that my marriage is coming to an end.’
In May, Burke gave some insight into how she is doing during an interview with Extra.

“As for me and how this is going, it’s real, I’m not proud of it, it’s a *** show,” she admitted.
“My emotions are constantly going up and down, I’m sad every morning when I wake up, I’m sad every time I go to bed at night,” she revealed.
“It’s really nothing to hide in here, as far as divorce sucks. I don’t recommend it, but at the end of the day, you know, it’s not like we haven’t tried and I know we gave it a good shot,” the entertainer said.
Cheryl promoted a new podcast where her listeners will help her through the process after her divorce.
She admitted that “the word dating is making me throw up a bit right now, so obviously I’m not ready for that,” but added that she’ll “hopefully find love eventually.”
