Moon Zappa Divorce

Our Kid Will Still Get the Star Treatment

4/11/2014 12:20 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Moon Zappa and "Matchbox Twenty" drummer Paul Doucette just finalized their divorce ...  and they agree on one thing ... their daughter will live like a glamorous Hollywood princess.

According to their divorce docs ... 9-year-old Mathilda will get the standard celeb kid trappings -- private schools and music lessons -- but Moon and Paul also signed off on ... "photo or video shoots for Mathilda's career." 

Also ... they've agreed to never allow her to be "baby-sat by a hotel baby-sitting service, fun rooms or the equivalent."

The docs show Doucette will pay Zappa $8K a month in spousal support for the next 5 years ... and another $6K a month in child support. 

Plus, they'll split the money Paul made from more than 50 songs he's written or co-written -- including "Matchbox Twenty" gems ... "If You're Gone" and "How Far We've Come." 

Sappy adult contemporary -- supporting famous kids since 2014.

"Mathilda Doucette?" Why don't you just tattoo "bully me" on the poor the poor kid's forehead?

No need to roast this guy obviously money is not his main concern, he seems like a guy that wants to do right by his ex and his little girl,more than most divorcing fathers are willing to do

So...once again a parasite takes a guy to the cleaners for spousal support, child support and HALF of the efforts of HIS work. Guys...NEVER marry them and when you bang them, be wearing 5 condoms and video tape it so they can't scream R___!

I'm shocked he can afford that much child support. When is the last time his band actually had a hit? As for her, does she really need spousal support?

She's baaaack    

No fun rooms? Bummer. When my kids were little the grocery store I went to had a fun room for the kids where they always had crafts and games and musical instruments. The kids loved their time there, and the parents could take their time and shop. My kids are pretty much grown up now but they still talk about the fun room. She's missing a lot.
