Giada de Laurentiis' divorce final, she must serve up $9,000 a month for child support BY Jacqueline Cutler NEW YORK DAILY NEWS Friday, September 4, 2015, 12:01 PM L Janette Pellegrini/Getty Images for Hamptons Magazi Giada De Laurentiis, Food Network star and cookbook author, had her divorce finalized and it includes $9,000 a month in child support to her ex Todd Thompson. Celebrity chef Giada De Laurentiis is officially divorced from Todd Thompson, and it’s one expensive split. De Laurentiis, 45, and Thompson, 52, were married for 12 years, and have one daughter, Jade Marie, 7. De Laurentiis is going to fork over $9,000 a month for child support, though they will share custody, according to the divorce decree first reported by TMZ. Thompson also keeps their $3.2 million Pacific Palisades house with its $300,000 worth of furnishings and art, and he can keep his membership in the Bel-Air Club. Because there was no pre-nup, De Laurentiis must pay her ex half of the unpaid advances to cookbooks that are in the works.
