Model Paulina Porizkova is opening up about the one thing she regretted about her 3-decade long marriage to the late iconic singer Ric Ocasek. In a recent interview with UBS, the 55-year-old spoke about her financial misfortune in the union.

Porizkova, who dominated the ‘80s scene, didn’t sign a prenup with Ocasek and described herself as “stupid” for failing to do so. She noted that she met the late singer when she was just 19.

When asked why she designated all of her finances to him, the model admitted that she got wrapped up in love and thought it was unromantic to talk to him about it. She also mentioned that there too much money to be bothered about it.

Although she was earning well on her own, the moment she and Ocasek wanted to tie the knot, she agreed that they pool their money together. The mother-of-two mentioned that even Ocasek suggested a prenup at the start.
