Rosie O’Donnell allegedly spent eight months negotiating a pre-nuptial agreement with her now bride, Michelle Rounds. The Rosie O’Donnell and Michelle Rounds pre-nup discussions did not end until hours before the wedding, the New York Post reports. Michelle Rounds, 40, reportedly receives none of Rosie O’Donnell’s wealth is she cheats on her 50-year-old wife.
Michelle Rounds and Rosie O’Donnell were married in an intimate and largely secret ceremony on June 9. The wedding was held at Rosie O’Donnell’s home in Nyack. A New York Post source maintains the talk show host was “extremely generous” with Michelle Rounds in the pre-nuptial agreement — unless she cheats.
The couple had originally planned to be married in August, but the wedding was pushed up to June after Michelle Rounds was diagnosed with an aggressive form of fibromatosis. Rounds had surgery for the rare desmoid tumors on June 14. Rosie O’Donnell has also suffered from health issues; the comedienne recently had a heart attack.
Although both women have had health issues, the days leading up to the Rosie O’Donnell and Michelle Rounds wedding were “pretty fraught,” according to the New York Post source. O’Donnell allegedly wanted the pre-nuptial agreement signed under her stated terms and was “no in the mood to make any compromises.”
Rosie O’Donnell is quoted in a source interview with the New York Post as saying:
“Despite this, Rosie and Michelle truly love each other, and they wanted to marry before Michelle underwent surgery.”
A second wedding celebration will reportedly be planned by the couple when they are both feeling better, according to comments Rosie O’Donnell posted on her blog. Michelle Rounds has undergone multiple gastrointestinal operations and is currently recovering at home with O’Donnell.
