'E.R.' Actress


In Divorce Settlement

7/29/2013 12:15 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Former "E.R." star Parminder Nagra just scored a huge victory over her ex-husband ... TMZ has learned she won't have to give up a dime of her "E.R." loot.

We broke the story ... Parminder's ex James Stenson sued her last year, claiming she was hiding her acting money from gigs like "E.R.", "Alcatraz", and "Psych" ... to prevent him getting any of it.

Now they've hammered out a settlement, and it's clear from the docs ... the real winner's name rhymes with Tinder.

Here's what Parminder gets:
ALL her income, residuals and royalties from her acting gigs including "E.R" -- which, of course, brings in beaucoup syndication dollars.

But there's more ... she also gets their Cali home (worth over $700k), their UK home ($1.5 million), and profits from the sale of a rental property. PLUS she gets 3 of the couple's 4 cars.

Here's what James gets: $450k from the rental home sale, $1,226/month in child support for their 4-year-old kid, and his photography biz.

Oh, and a Mazda CX9.

Just because he was awards child support does NOT mean that he got sole custody. They were actually awarded joint custody of the child. The reason he gets child support is because her income is so far greater than his, the support payments will allow James to raise the child in a similar manner. Can you imagine having only the best when Mom has you at her house and Dad can only feed you Ramen Noodles?

Since when is losing custody of your kid a huge victory?

I was thinking that seemed really unfair, until I looked up the details of their marriage. They only got hitched in 2009 (the year ER was cancelled). He would have no claims to any income she earned prior to their marriage. Also, most states won't award alimony unless the couple had been wed for a more significant amount of time (usually 10 years). You can't really compare this situation to an athlete who was married for 18 years and had 6 kids with a woman who followed him from city to city for 2 decades. His child support payment is designed to help level the playing field between their two incomes, and I'm assuming they have joint custody.

and women wonder why so many guys are less than enthusiastic about marriage?
it is because most end in divorce and the guy almost always gets shafted big-time.
no surprise here. she obviously didn't want the kid or she would have had that too.
she got what- about 90% of everything.
what a crock!

She fought over her income royalties and possessions but apparently didn't fight over custody of her child? He got the better deal keeping his son and getting away from her.

Unreal the inequity that exists when the woman is the bread winner in the family. Men worth far less than her get divorced and pay more. If this is any indication of the type of person she is, that kid is better off without her

Did he just get custody of the kid? Or do you not have to have physical custody to get child support? *smh*

Man, this guy needs to sue his lawyer! Since Dad got custody, one assumes he's neither a drunk nor drug addict. How long were they married? And certainly don't live in a community property state. So many questions about this seemingly unfair settlement.

She gave up or lost custody of her child and she's paying child support to her ex-husband? Talk about burying your lead...
