Anne Heche's divorce settlement is finalized



Tbdanneheche031109 The legal battles between on-again, off-again lesbian Anne Heche and bitter ex-husband Coley Laffoon are over. The couple reached a settlement ending their five-year marriage once and for all on Wednesday, People reports.

While Heche agreed back in June to pay $3,700 a month in child support for their now-7-year-old son, Homer, the splitting of the assets took this long to end. Under terms reached after two years of backbiting and renegotiation, the couple will share 50-50 physical and legal custody and Anne has to pay Laffoon $515,000 in a lump sum in exchange for waiving spousal support.

He'll also get half of their community property, including $700,000 or so in stocks and other assets (though that value may be dwindling as we type). Heche, meanwhile, gets to keep her multimillion home in Vancouver, B.C., which is probably fine with Coley, since that's where she's shacking up with "other man" James Tupper.
