Valerie Bertinelli has to pay to get out.
The “One Day at a Time” alum agreed to pay her ex-husband Tom Vitale $2.2 million as part of their divorce proceedings, according to court documents obtained by Page Six. The huge amount is in addition to the $500,000 she had already transferred to him on May 24.
The documents also show that Vitale must leave Bertinelli’s house in Malibu, California, by December 31, as long as the actress has paid him the sum of what he owes. If not, he can stay in the house without paying rent.
According to their prenuptial agreement, neither Bertinelli nor Vitale will pay spousal support to each other, the documents say.
The ‘Valerie’s Home Cooking’ star, 62, and Vitale’s divorce was declared on November 22, prompting her to celebrate immediately.
“My lawyer just called,” she gushed in a video posted to her social media. “The papers are all signed. They are about to be submitted.
“On 11/22/22 I officially divorced,” Bertinelli continued. “Happy divorced. Finally. It’s finally over.”
The Emmy winner closed with an excited “Yes!” She added the words “happily divorced” to the images.
Bertinelli’s video came a year after her requested legal separation of the financial planner, whom she married in January 2011.
Before her romance with Vitale, which began in 2004, the “Hot in Cleveland” alum was married to the late rocker Eddie Van Halen from 1981 to 2001, though their divorce wasn’t finalized until six years after the split.
The former couple welcomed son Wolfgang, now 31, before going their separate ways.
