Rush Limbaugh is known for his conservative radio show that drew in tons of fans and critics over the years. The infamous star died on Feb. 17, 2021. And it was Rush Limbaugh’s wife, Kathryn Adams Limbaugh, who announced his death on the air. So, did Rush and Kathryn have a prenup? Here’s what we know.
Who is Rush Limbaugh’s wife, Kathryn Adams Limbaugh?
Rush might be known for his right-wing views, but Kathryn Adams Limbaugh has largely stayed out of the spotlight. So, who is Rush Limbaugh’s wife? It turns out Kathryn was an event planner, and the two met back in 2004 in part thanks to her job. She planned a charity golf event that Rush attended, though they didn’t get romantic until years later. Rush was also married to his third wife, Marta Fitzgerald, at the time, though they later divorced.
Once Rush and Kathryn reconnected, they had a lavish wedding in 2010 that included a $1 million performance from Elton John and was attended by a number of famous conservatives like Sean Hannity and Rudy Giuliani.
There is quite an age difference between Rush and Kathryn, too. Kathryn’s just 44, and Rush was 70 when he died. And she was also the one to announce his death on his radio show.
“As so many of you know, losing a loved one is terribly difficult, even more so when that loved one is larger than life,” she announced. “Rush will forever be the greatest of all time.”
Did Rush Limbaugh sign a prenup with Kathryn Adams Limbaugh?
Rush made a ton of money off of his infamous commentary. And many may wonder if the couple signed a prenup. According to Heavy, The National Enquirer, a known tabloid, reported Rush and Kathryn had not signed a prenuptial agreement.
It’s tough to say if the tabloid knows the full story of Rush and Kathryn’s marriage, though. Back in 2017, the tabloid reported Kathryn was cheating on him with “hunky young athletes” and that she was setting the stage for a “big-bucks divorce.” An alleged source the tabloid spoke with also allegedly claimed Kathryn was seeing married men behind Rush’s back.
Heavy notes spokespeople for Rush’s radio show totally denied the rumors, though. And, of course, we know Kathryn and Rush never got divorced despite what the rumors claimed at the time.
What was Rush Limbaugh’s net worth when he died?
Rush Limbaugh’s net worth when he died was quite notable. Back in 2018, it was reported The Rush Limbaugh Show brought in $84.5 million. And his various books and public speaking initiatives earned him even more. Overall, he died with a net worth of around $600 million.
We can’t forget about Rush and Kathryn’s lavish home, too. The couple lived in a 34,000-square-foot Palm Beach, Florida, residence that boasted seven bedrooms, 12 bathrooms, an elevator, a two-story library, four guest houses, and 24-hour security guards. Rush initially bought the house for just $3.98 million back in 1998. But once the couple moved there permanently, they expanded it. It now has an estimated value of around $50 million.
Will Kathryn stay in Palm Beach moving forward? We’ll have to wait and find out.
