People says that Jodie Sweetin has been ordered to pay her ex-husband $2,800 a month in child support. No, not the one who went to jail (that’s her ex-fiancé) or the husband she married at 20. We’re talking about the one with the old-timey name that she split from after a year of marriage, Morty Coyle.
Jodie and Morty, which sounds like a TGIF sitcom that never was, were married for a year between 2012 and 2013. They share a 7-year-old daughter Beatrix (she also shares a 9-year-old daughter Zoie with her ex-husband Cody Herpin). Last Friday, documents were filed showing that Jodie will pay Morty $2,800 a month until Beatrix graduates high school or becomes emancipated.
Jodie and Morty have been fighting over money since their divorce was finalized in August 2016. In October, Morty claimed Jodie was bringing in $700,000 a year and demanded more money than the $1,864 he was getting for Beatrix every month. Last month, Jodie filed an income report stating that her gross income for 2016 was $437,349, and that she makes closer to $43,000 a month from her Fuller House wages, and self-employment.
She also claimed that her monthly expenses are $15,262, with about $28,352 left over.
I’m still a little shook that Jodie Sweetin only makes a little over $40,000 a month. Based on the fact that reruns of Full House refuse to die, I always assumed she made at least $1.7 million a month from residual checks. But even more shocking is that she isn’t bringing in the big money from repeat airings of the second season of Pants-Off, Dance-Off. You mean to tell me PODO doesn’t air nightly on some cable access channel in a country like Poland? How rude!
