David Hasselhoff has spousal support payments reduced
David Hasselhoff has had his spousal support payments to Pamela Bach reduced by half.
The former ‘Baywatch’ star previously requested the monthly sums he gives his ex-wife - who he divorced in 2010 - be reduced from $10,000 to zero, but the pair have now reached an agreement which will see her receive $5,000 each month from him.
According to TMZ, the new agreement will begin on 1 December and ends no later than 30 November 30 2020.
In September, the 65-year-old actor - who has daughters Taylor, 27, and Hayley, 25, with Pamela - filed documents requesting an immediate end to his alimony payments, pointing out his ex-wife had shown “failure to make any efforts to become self supporting, contribute to her own support, or even make any efforts to gain job skills.”
He also cited his own reduced income, which previously saw the payments reduced from $21,000 a month.
However, the ‘Viper’ actress later hit back and in her legal documents argued she had made “good faith and reasonable efforts” to secure work as an actress, but given the fact she’s 55, “the current market for actresses” and the time she took out to raise her family, hadn’t been successful.
She argued David makes around $1 million a year still, whereas her prime earning years were spent raising their daughters and taking care of their home so the ‘Knightrider’ star could pursue his own career.
Her legal documents also argued that her ex-husband had failed to give her $1 million to balance the separation of their assets when they divorced, as she got $325,000 from their house, whereas he kept the home, a boat, jetskis, and two trusts with extensive assets.
