After two years the “Dog Whisperer” Cesar Millan is finally a divorced man. Though he filed for divorce from his wife in 2010, his divorce settlement just came through. As a television show host for the National Geographic Channel, Millan makes $170,000 a month in salary. He was ordered to pay his ex-wife a single payment of $400,000. He will have to continue making spousal support or alimony payments to her in the amount of $23,000.
Also included in the divorce decree is a $10,000 a month payment for child support for the couple’s two sons. His ex-wife will maintain physical custody of the boys, but Millan was granted visitation rights. Apparently, part of the reason the divorce proceedings took so long is because the settlement also includes detailed clauses demanding silence.
The document stipulates that any “intimate, personal and/or private information about the other party … including details of their personal and/or sexual relationships” must remain confidential. Rules for not disclosing any film, recording, photo or video of Millan that are not already commercially available are also included.
Millan married in 1994, 10 years before his television series premiered on the National Geographic WILD channel. and before he gained celebrity as the “Dog Whisperer.” Born in Mexico, Millan moved to Los Angeles to be a Hollywood animal trainer.
Other clauses and stipulations often included in Louisiana divorce settlements include name changes, property settlement and division, payments of loans or debts, which parent will claim the children on tax returns, who will pay for your children’s extra-curricular activities, non-harassment clauses and college expense agreements.
