Uh… we guess art doesn't imitate life in this case.
According to TMZ, Modern Family creator Steven Levitan is furious with his ex-wife Krista. The pair were married for 23 years but split in January 2016 due to "irreconcilable differences".

At the time of the breakup, Krista asked for spousal support which is a big deal when you consider Steven's $50 million dollar fortune. Thanks to California state laws, the former Mrs. Levitan could walk away with a big chunk of the mogul's estate!
Unsurprisingly, the idea of spousal support didn't sit well with Steven and he's STILL mad about the legal proceedings almost a year later!
In the leaked email to his ex-wife (we wonder who did that…), the TV guy called her "Krista Schmuck" and swore that she'd never see any money from him. The dad of three also went on to chastise Krista for not handling the divorce more quietly like Ben Affleck and Jennifer Garner… or Gwyneth Paltrow and Chris Martin.
To be fair, S.T. did agree to splitting half of his assets with Krista when they first broke up, but apparently the scorned lover wants more than $25 million.
Hopefully these two can work out their differences before the split gets even nastier. We thought things would have died down after Krista was denied a restraining order earlier today — apparently a judge found no reasonable cause to grant the ex protection.
So, do YOU think Krista is out for revenge or is Steve in the wrong here?
