Giada De Laurentiis Has To Pay Ex Husband $9K A Month For Child Support
Food Network star and chef Giada De Laurentiis has finalized her divorce but it’s going to cost her a lot!
to divorce docs obtained by People, the 44-year-year-old Food Network star and ex-husband Todd Thompson will share joint custody of their 7-year-old daughter, with De Laurentiis paying her ex $9,000 a month in child support.
The former couple — who split last summer after 11 years of marriage — reportedly did not sign a prenup. According to People, De Laurentiis will split profits 50/50 with Thompson from every cookbook she published during their marriage in addition to giving him 50 percent of the unpaid advances to various cookbooks she has in the works. (Those profits alone are worth more than $5 million, according to the mag).
Thompson will keep their $3.2 million dollar home in Pacific Palisades. The exes will reportedly divvy up their various bank accounts worth more than $2 million.
De Laurentiis announced the couple’s separation on Facebook last December, telling fans, “Todd and I share a beautiful daughter and a lifetime of great memories that we both treasure more than anything.”
Last month, the celebrity chef told Extra that cooking helped her cope in the wake of the divorce
