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.

Taxes, people! And does he pay lawyers, agents, etc.? If they work for him, he pays them whether he is currently working or not. Something else that is notable about this divorce: the lack of apparent acrimony. Classy.

I coud save these celebretards a lot of money and trouble. You're a narcissistic personality, don't get married. The end.

I would think he makes more than $50 grand a month with him guest staring on Mercy. Pacey Witter(Joshua Jackson) makes more with his staring role on Fringe.

Kim Kardashian should go out with him, he was the Mox for crying out loud! The greatest QB in movie history. The Mox would be there for Kim in ways Reggie couldn't. In spite of being a huge star he always makes time for his woman. I would like to see Kim wear a whipped cream bikini for the Mox, just like that slut did in the movie, The Mox Rules!

Don't understand the people who say she deserves it? for what? Did she help him land his roles, negotiate his salary?

A woman should leave a marriage with what she came into it. This isn't the 1950's. Women work nowadays, if the courts are unaware of it...LOL

He is too good looking for Kim K, she should stay with monkey face Reggie, no white guy wants her.

I think that anyone who makes $50,000 shouldn't b*tch about having to give up a measly $7,500. All the guys on here whining will never get married. No woman wants a cry baby.

What are you guys, dumb? $7,750 per month is nothing (for him), in fact it is, ironically two months salary or $100k per year. Hmmmm who did the math there, some engagement ring company perhaps? Also, for a 7 year marriage he'll be on the hook for 5 years or less. What's half a mil to dump that big nose!

Considering this was a sham marriage meant to distract from those pesky gay rumors that flew during Dawson's Creek - look up the old items about the 'Beek and his TV dad - I'd say this is fair payment for said arrangment.
