Back in September, the Internet was hit with a giant wave of ESCANDALONESS (not really, not at all) when we all found out that Morena Baccarin (from the V reboot and Homeland) made a baby with her Gotham co-star Benjamin McKenzie (from The O.C.). It wasn’t a scandal that Benjamin busted a baby into Morena’s body, but was it a little scandalous that her husband, director Austin Chick, claims they were very much married and together when she got it on with Ryan from The O.C. Austin Chick filed for divorce in July after 4 years of marriage.
Morena and Austin have a 2-year-old son together and even though they have joint custody, a judge already declared that their kid will mostly live with her in NYC where she shoots Gotham. Morena won that round, but she lost the next one hard. TMZ says that a judge ruled that Morena must pay Mr. Clean’s son $2,693 a month in child support and $20,249 a month in spousal support. That comes out to a grand total of:
The hell kind of money are they paying her on Gotham? Maybe Morena agreed to throw a bunch of money at her soon-to-be-ex-husband, because he threatened to spill all her secrets to the tabloids or something. I don’t know, but we can all learn a lesson from this. If you ever find yourself in a TV show and you really want to bump sex parts with your co-star, but you’re still married and you don’t have a prenup, you should file for divorce (or break up with your spouse in writing and notarized) BEFORE the dick goes. Because if you don’t, your checking account could be the one that gets fucked hard after a judge orders you to pay your ex a giant pile of cash every month.
With that being said, #getmoneymrcleansson!
