Upon their divorce in 2000 after nine years, Rene Elizondo filed a lawsuit against Janet seeking a $25 million settlement. Considering the fact that they were married during Janet's most productive and successful years, he could have been entitled to that full amount or more. In legal filings, Rene claimed that during their marriage they shared income and bank accounts and at that point he did not have any savings. He admitted they had a prenuptial agreement but claimed he signed it under duress.
After three years of legal battling, they reached a settlement that reportedly called for Janet to pay Rene $10 million plus legal fees.
