Band’s front man keeps assets in divorce

On Behalf of | Apr 17, 2019 | Divorce

When an Ohio marriage ends, it seems one of the most difficult tasks is the dividing of assets. While some couples with significant assets choose to have a prenuptial agreement in place before they marry, some do not, and attempts to reach a settlement during a divorce can become a real headache. Since their divorce, Limp Bizkit lead vocalist, Fred Durst, and ex-wife, Kseniya Beryazina, have thus far chosen to follow the stipulations set forth in their prenup.

Durst filed for divorce in September 2018, just before their seventh anniversary, but the reason was not given in a recent report. Because of their prenup, he was able to keep for himself the money he has accumulated from his music and his other entrepreneurial enterprises, as well as his pension plan and a motorcycle. Beryazina had financial assets coming into the marriage that she will be keeping, along with some jewelry, artwork and a BMW.

Durst originally did not want to pay Beryazina any spousal support but was willing to pay a monthly sum for the three years following the divorce. The amount will decrease each year until he no longer pays. She will also get a lump sum of $26,000. Although Durst has a son and a daughter, he and Beryazina had no children together.

Most divorcing couples in Ohio do not have the financial assets that most celebrities have, but that should not keep them from attempting to come to some sort of fair agreement in dividing assets and debts. Should there be any children from the marriage, their well-being should be given top priority when discussing finances and living situations. An attorney can give excellent advice according to the laws of the state to those who are going through a divorce.
