Bernie Ecclestone's daughter Petra signs pre-nup with fianc‚

August 14, 2011 - London

Formula 1 supremo Bernie Ecclestone's daughter Petra and her fiance James Stunt have signed a pre-nuptial agreement before they tie the knot later this month.

However, it is Stunt who has insisted on having the agreement drawn up, as he wants the marriage to start on an equal footing and he is keen for Petra to hold on to her assets - and him to his - if they ever separate.

"James suggested we organise this," the Daily Mail quoted Petra as saying.

"Neither my father or mother had anything to do with it.

"We think it's a sensible decision. In fact, we have signed agreements to protect both my and his assets. This is, though, the last thing on our minds as we prepare for our wedding," she added.

A friend also confirmed that it was Stunt who initiated the proceedings.

"James's wealth may be dwarfed by Petra's but he wants things to be even between them," the friend said.

"He was the one to initiate proceedings on signing a pre-nup to protect her wealth," the friend added.
