Comedian Tom Arnold and his wife Ashley Groussman have finalized their divorce after being married for ten years. Papers for the dissolution of the couple’s marriage were filed in Los Angeles County Superior Court on July 16.

The pair originally separated on January 1, 2019, citing irreconcilable differences as the cause of their split. The couple will share custody of their two children, seven-year-old Jax and four-year-old Quinn. 

According to the court documents, Arnold was ordered to pay Groussman $4,383 in spousal support per month until he turns 65. Additionally, he will pay Groussman $2,617 in child support per month until their children turn 18.

Arnold will also have to pay Groussman 50 percent of the net income he earned from “all right, title and interest in 12 intellectual properties relating to underlying works which were created during the marriage.” This includes NCIS, Trailer Park Boys, Hard Breakers and more.

For himself, however, Arnold permanently waived all rights to receive or claim spousal support.

In a statement, Arnold said, “For the last couple years we grew apart and have been moving in different directions, which is why at this time we have decided to end our marriage. I told Ashley that it’s her life, we had great years together and there doesn’t have to be a reason or a bad guy to move on. Go live your life, you owe me nothing.”

He continued to say, “We’re both crazy about these kids. We have two amazing children that we love very much and while she has moved out we will be working together to co-parent. My kids are my entire life and their happiness is all I care about. We ask for privacy during this time of transition in our family.”

Arnold was previously married to Roseanne Barr from 1990 to 1994, Julie Armstrong from 1995 to 1999, and Shelby Roos from 2002 to 2008. Arnold and Groussman were married in 2009.
