Giada De Laurentiis : TV chef Officially Divorced From Todd Thompson

Giada De Laurentiis’ divorce from Todd Thompson has been finalized, and it’s costing her more than a pretty penny.

Giada De Laurentiis has divorced her husband Todd Thompson to whom she must now pay $9,000 per month in child support. After 11 years of marriage the pair have split and will share custody of their seven-year-old daughter. “Todd and I share a beautiful daughter and a lifetime of great memories that we both treasure more than anything,” announced De Laurentiis via Facebook late last year.

In addition to child support, De Laurentiis must also pay Todd 50 percent of all net book royalties for books she published during their marriage and 50 percent of the unpaid advances to several upcoming cookbooks, including a $2.5 million balance for “Giada at Home/Weeknights with Giada,” $2.3 million for “Giada Feel Good Food,” and $757,000 for “Everyday Pasta/Giada’s Kitchen.”

Thompson, a fashion designer, also gets to keep the pair’s $3.2 million home in the Pacific Palisades, California.

The couple did not have a pre-nup.
