Oof. It doesn’t look like a happy ending for this Modern Family!
The creator of the hit series, Steve Levitan, is getting divorced. His longtime lady love, Krista, filed legal papers to end their marriage after 23 years.
The interesting twist in this news is that the producer’s rep tried to play the whole thing off like it was a mistake, saying:
“The filing was made in error and is being withdrawn.”
However, the showrunner’s ex apparently just submitted proof that she had legally served the Modern Family exec with the docs.
Oof! And according to the papers filed by celeb lawyer Stephen Kolodny, the former flames separated on New Year’s Eve.
What a way to ring in 2016.
Between the two of them, this pair’s estimated net worth is reportedly around $50 million, which makes sense since Steve created the award-winning FOX show AND wrote for a bunch of others like Fraiser, Wings, and The Larry Sanders Show.
And what makes this split even more interesting is that Steve and Krista never signed a prenup, so we’re really curious to see who gets what.
While the famous father won’t have to worry about custody or child support — since their three kids are all grown up — his estranged wife is asking for spousal support.
How do U think the divorce drama will go down, Perezcious readers?
