Anne Heche reaches divorce settlementJune 7th, 2008 - 4:52 pm ICT by IANS
New York, June 7 (IANS) Film actress Anne Heche reached a settlement Friday in her contentious divorce from Coley Laffoon, agreeing to pay her ex-husband a $275,000 lump sum and $3,700 per month in child support for their six-year-old son, court papers show. The agreement marks a sharp reduction in the temporary $15,000-a-month support that the “Men in Trees” star had been paying - but said she could no longer afford because she was out of work, people.com reports.
Under the settlement, Heche, 38, will also pay 75 percent of son Homer’s private school tuition and half of “agreed-upon extracurricular activities” for the boy, according to court papers.
Laffoon, 34, filed for divorce in February 2007, and the fight quickly became nasty, with Heche portraying Laffoon as a deadbeat who watches porn and frequents strip clubs, and Laffoon calling Heche mentally unstable.
