Dylan Walsh

Ordered to Pay Ex-Wife

Former "Nip/Tuck" star Dylan Walsh is officially divorced from his ex-wife -- but guy shoulda signed a pre-nup ... because the split's gonna cost him half of pretty much everything, including his "Nip/Tuck" money.

The divorce decree was signed by a judge last week -- and according to the divorce docs, Walsh agreed to pay his actress ex-wife Joanna Going half of his royalties from "Nip/Tuck," a couple movies, an "SVU" episode, and more.

Meanwhile, Going agreed to pay him half of her royalties from work she did during their marriage -- including acting work on random shows like "CSI," and "Criminal Minds."

Since Walsh made out with more than Going, Walsh also agreed to ante up an extra $118,376 to even out the spoils.

As for their 9-year-old daughter -- Walsh and Going have agreed to split legal custody.

Walsh -- who makes $93,000 per episode on his new show "Unforgettable" -- has agreed to pay roughly $4,300 from each paycheck in child support. Oh yeah, he also has to pay a boat load of spousal support until 2015.

Walsh filed for divorce in 2010. They got married in 2004.

The lesson -- sign a pre-nup.

I thought Unforgettable got cancelled. That was the one with Poppy Montgomery where she remembered everything that happened around her.

Who ever wrote this article really doesn't know the law. No prenup would shield money being made DURING a marriage. Nip/Tuck ran from 2003 - 2010, 9 years of it during their marriage(!).. Real lesson is to never marry if you want to keep your money.

That's why you should take the your marriage committment seriously. It's not supposed to be easy to get out of. Don't get married. I have no sympathy for these idiots.

I think it's sad that people are allowed to exit a marriage and take stuff that they didn't even come in with or have anything to do with. At the end of the day though, this remains to be an issue within our society, where marriage pretty much means nothing anymore. People get married for the hell of it because they are aware that they can divorce. Men do it because they know they can wiggle their way out of it through divorce and can be on to the next one. Women do it because they know that through that divorce comes tons and tons of money that they didnt have prior. While not all situations are like this, these specific types are pathetic.

The lesson -- don't get married and don't have a kid with someone who thinks that's an ATM machine between their legs.
