The couple got hitched in June 19998 and David listed the date of separation as February 1, 2019.

Per their agreement, the court found that “irreconcilable differences” have arisen between the parties, and they cease to live together as husband and wife.

The exes agreed to share joint legal and physical custody of their kids. Both have the right to voice their opinion on school choices, extracurricular activities, and doctor visits.

David will pay his ex-wife $7,231 per month in child support based on his $60k a month income. He will also cough up $6,860 per month in spousal support. Further, in years that David pulls in more than $720k he will owe Leigh a percentage of the income.
