Getting divorced is never easy, but when celebrities, fame and enormous bank accounts are involved, splitting up can get really difficult.
Family law attorney Laura Wasser has helped many stars—including Britney Spears, Ashton Kutcher, Christina Aguilera, Kim Kardashian, Angelina Jolie, Ryan Reynolds and Heidi Klum—through the process of divorcing a spouse. She dropped by E! News on Tuesday, Oct. 9, to talk about her book, It Doesn't Have to Be That Way: How to Divorce Without Destroying Your Family or Bankrupting Yourself, and explained why she treats every divorce "like a business transaction."
"[I tell clients] let's do this in a way that we can keep your sanity and your bank accounts intact," she said. "There's no reason to turn this into some kind of a melodrama—particularly if you're a famous person, because we know it's all going to get played out through the media."
