In a victory for "Dynasty" star Joan Collins, a Los Angeles judge today upheld a prenuptial agreement between the actress and her estranged husband, former Swedish rock star Peter Holm.
Superior Court Judge Earl Riley said the agreement--which limits Holm to 20% of the actress' earnings during their 13-month marriage--says nothing about support. Holm had argued that the document was a clarification of an existing support arrangement and not a prenuptial agreement.
"There is no question in the court's mind that this prenuptial agreement signed by both parties was bargained for over a long, long period of time, over a period of many months," Riley said. "The court finds and holds that the agreement, executed Oct. 23, 1985, was a valid and legal agreement."
The judge also said that he believes that both Holm and Collins understood what they were signing and that "Ms. Collins and Mr. Holm understood the meaning of all five paragraphs."
