Celebrity chef Giada De Laurentiis just got served a cold dish of reality.
The Food Network star has officially divorced her fashion designer husband Todd Thompson, but since they didn't have a prenup, it's going to cost her millions.
According to court documents obtained by People, she will pay Thompson $9,000 a month in child support. They will also share joint custody of their seven-year-old daughter, Jade Marie.
Her ex - who is worth a reported $15 million - will also get to keep their $3.2 million Los Angeles home, $300K in art and other furnishings and membership to the fancy schmancy Bel-Air Bay Club.
Since there was no prenup - always get a prenup!- Thompson is entitled to 50% of the net royalties from all her books published during their 11-year marriage AND 50% of the advances for several books she has yet to publish. In total, her ex will pocket over $5 million from her publishing deals.
On the plus side, since they're both rich, neither has to pay spousal support.
"After an amicable separation since July, Todd and I have decided to end our marriage. Although our decision to separate comes with a great deal of sadness, our focus on the future and overwhelming desire for our family's happiness has given us the strength to move forward on separate, yet always connected paths."
