Katie Couric and John Molner: Fighting Over Money?

Wednesday, October 30, 2013

12th Annual Bette Midler's New York Restoration Project Spring Picnic - ArrivalsKATIE Couric has put her wedding on hold — and it’s all down to money.

The TV star and her investment banker beau John Molner have been squabbling over thier prenup.

Katie, 56, is determined to protect her reported $55 million fortune if she splits from Molner, who’s said to be worth $20 million.

“Katie and John started butting heads over how to separate their finances just weeks after they got engaged,” said an insider, according to the National Enquirer.

“She wants him to sign a pre-nup, but he’s resisting.”

After Katie’s daughters – Ellie, 22, and Carrie, 17 – begged her to make John sign an iron­clad prenup, she finally saw the light.

“Katie told John she wants to keep their finances sepa­rate and she wants monetary compen­sation if he cheats on her,” said the source.

“John exploded. He claims that he’s a self-made man with money of his own and thinks a prenup is a bad omen for their future.

“Now Katie is rethinking the relationship, and she’s put preparations for their wedding next summer on hold.”
