Giada De Laurentiis Is Divorced And It Was Expensive!

19th Annual ELLE Women in Hollywood Tribute - Arrivals
Giada De Laurentiis’ marriage is dunzo and it was expensive. The famous Food Network star divorced husband of 11 years, Todd Thompson, last July but the split will cost the TV chef. Giada will pay her ex $9,000 a month in child support for their daughter, Jade Marie, 7. Thompson also gets couple’s $3.2 million house in Pacific Palisades, California since there’s no prenup…Ouch…and she has to give him 50 percent of all net book royalties for books she published when they were married and she has to give up 50 percent of the unpaid advances to several cookbooks already in the works, which could amount to more than $5 million.

Yeah so she lives in Cali…a 50/50 state. But it says he’s worth about $15 million and she’s worth $20 million so neither has been ordered to pay spousal support, but why does she have to dole out so much to him is beyond me.
