Ewan McGregor & Eve Mavrakis Get Divorced 3 Years Later:
Ewan McGregor and Eve Mavrakis have separated. The actor’s divorce from his now-ex-wife was formalized on Thursday, according to court documents acquired by ET. Three years after their breakup, they reunited.
Anouk, their 9-year-old daughter, has joint legal and physical care of the couple’s youngest child. Clara, 24, Jamyang, 19, and Esther, 18, are their three older daughters. According to the documents, McGregor is obligated to pay the production designer $14,934 in child support each month. He’ll also pay spousal support of $35,868 each month.
Except for his picture Christopher Robin, for which he received $3 million, films and shows McGregor released after this separation date — listed as May 28, 2017 — are considered his own property, according to the documents. That will be shared property.
McGregor and Mavrakis met in 1995 on the set of Kavanagh QC, a British television drama where she worked as a production designer. In August of 1995, the couple tied the knot. McGregor filed for divorce in January 2018, only months after being spotted in a London cafe with his Fargo co-star, Mary Elizabeth Winstead, after 22 years of marriage.
When McGregor won Best Lead Actor in a Miniseries at the 2018 Golden Globes for his work in Fargo, he congratulated Winstead and Mavrakis.
“I want to take a moment to just say to Eve, who has always stuck by me for 22 years, and my four children, Clara, Esther, Jamyan, and Anouk, I love you,” he stated.
Ewan McGregor’s Divorce Is Final, And It Appears To Be Costly:
Bifurcation is the newest celebrity divorce craze. The split in the middle is known as the mid-split split. Even though Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt’s divorce is in its fourth year, they have both been deemed legally single. Kelsey Grammer was remarried within a year after Camille and Kelsey Grammer did it. And Ewan McGregor and Eve Mavrakis, his 22-year-old wife, did it in 2019 before finalizing their divorce on Thursday. The trendy maneuver in Hollywood right now is to be proclaimed single in the eyes of the state before signing the final divorce papers.
People acquired the settlement because the court did not keep the specifics of McGregor and Mavrakis’ proceedings under lock and key as Pitt and Jolie did. It’s quite telling: she got by with $14,934 per month in child support for their youngest child, Anouk, who is the only one of the four who is under the age of 18. Mavrakis also receives significant spousal assistance of $35,868 per month.
McGregor and Mavrakis, a French-born production designer, divorced in 2017, therefore everything he did after that was exempt from the asset division. However, the judge labeled his 2018 Disney feature, Christopher Robin, for which he received $3,000,000, as community property, which means Mavrakis will also receive a cut.
