Beek from 'Creek'

Doesn't Get Off Cheap

3/30/2010 6:55 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

James Van Der Beek is one step closer to being a single man ... a single man that has to pay his soon-to-be ex-wife a boatload of money.

Van Der Beek -- who will officially be single June 3 -- has settled up with Heather Ann McComb, for the price of $7,750 a month in spousal support.

But it's not all bad. According to docs filed in L.A. County Superior Court, Beek gets the Hollywood house and all the movies, stories, scripts, screenplays, etc. that he wrote during their nearly seven year marriage.

As we first reported, the former "Dawson's Creek" star rakes in around $50,000 a month. Take that, Pacey Witter.

When these thing happen, I don't mind calling women b!tches. F**k a whore, but don't marry a whore.

7,750 is 15% of his income. Not much by divorce standards and hardly a "boat load".

She needs to get a job. What ever happened to woman's independence? It's not like she is supporting his kids.

I would love to know what work he is doing that brings in $50,000 a month. I have not seen him acting in anything in ages.

Marriages are like ponzi-schemes. It's the world's oldest profession. You have to have all this money to get a girl, and even more money to get rid of one, lol!

Oh, what do you do for a living? I was married to James Van Der Beek.

$93K/year isn't bad for having once been married to someone.

And thats the truth    

After he pays her, he still has over $42,000 a MONTH to live on.... poor baby. That is more then a lot of people make in a year. I do not feel sorry for him in the least.

I live in California and even though $7750.00 sounds like a lot of monies, it is not. A small one bedroom apartment is over $1500.00 a month and that is in an average neighborhood. If she wants to rent a house, that would probably be at least half of the $7750.00 or more.

"Take that Pacey Whitter"?? In case you brainiacs at tmz didnt know, Josh Jackson (Pacey) he has his own show on fox and probably makes more than $50,000 a WEEK. Its called RESEARCH! Look into it.

Now if this was a man getting what Beek's ex was getting, women would be accusing him of milking the wife and would call him lazy. It is only okay to rape an ex in divorce court if the one being raped is the man. Imagine if they had kids. I thought you women were "strong" and "independent." Remember how women bashed K-Fed when he wanted a fair share? I bet Beek won't be stupid enough not to get a prenup next time.
