“Gotham” co-stars Ben McKenzie and Morena Baccarin may reportedly have to shell out some millions if they ever want to walk down the aisle the soonest time possible.
According to an item on The National Enquirer , Austin Chick was purportedly demanding a big amount before he will settle with the actress on their divorce. It was mentioned in the report that their divorce will amount to $5.1 million.
The director, as mentioned in the report, has apparently been using the “Gotham” actress’ pregnancy as leverage in their divorce. In the court documents, he apparently claimed that Baccarin got pregnant while they were still working on their marriage — a claim that the actress has denied and constested.
As told by TMZ back in August, Austin Chick was purportedly demanding for child and spousal support from Morena Baccarin, who was reportedly raking in $1.5 million per year.
The director also reportedly wanted $3,000 a month from the actress, who’s now dating Ben McKenzie, to cover expenses for a nanny for their toddler.
Baccarin plans to remarry her baby daddy “Gotham” co-star as revealed in legal documents acquired by entertainment websites. It was not clear though if she will do it as soon as her divorce pulls through. Amid the divorce drama though, the actress keeps her toddler, Julius, a priority.
“[My son Julius is] the love of my life,” the actress shared to Fox’s ” Good Day LA .” “Honestly, he’s really strong-willed. He always has been from the moment he was born.”
Ben McKenzie and Morena Baccarin have yet to directly address the accusations that her ex-husband has hurled against them as her divorce proceeding continues.
The pair has not been spotted together publicly since their 2015 Emmys appearance . It was during the Emmys that it was revealed the Baccarin and McKenzie were an item. They dropped a bigger bombshell days later though when it surfaced that she was pregnant.
