Jodie Sweetin hashed out a private financial settlement with her ex-husband Morty Coyle months before getting engaged to her fiancé, Mescal Wasilewski.

Sweetin and Coyle got hitched in 2012. However, a little over a year later the actress slapped her husband with legal papers asking for a legal separation.

The split dragged on for years with the two going back and forth in court. They ended up settling the case in 2016. They share an 11-year-old daughter Beatrix Carlin Sweetin-Coyle.

“My current support obligation for our minor child, Beatrix Carlin Sweetin Coyle (DOB: 08/31/2010) was established while I was starring on “Fuller House” a reboot of the series which established my acting career, “Full House”. “Fuller House” ran from 2016 to 2020. After the show ended my income decreased by over half(1/2) of what it reached in 2019 where I was being paid for each episode of “Fuller House” and receiving residual income from the show. Since then, my income has only further declined."

Sweetin revealed she made $32k from the platform in 2021.
