Divorce proceedings have got to be one of the biggest headaches to the modern celebrity ever to exist- because otherwise, how would us common folk be privy to information like ‘Modern Family’ creator Steven Levitan brings home $2.4 million EVERY MONTH?!
In January, Steven Levitan’s former wife of 23 years, Krista Levitan, filed for divorce and began an ugly battle to get her share of Levitan’s earnings.
According to divorce docs, a lot of metaphorical financial pie is up for slicing because Levitan brings home an almost unfathomable amount of money on a monthly basis.
And according to Krista, Steven Levitan is incredibly good at saving his money, cutting monthly costs wherever he can (Krista says they only spend $100 a month on laundry despite spending almost $12,000 on new clothes!)
TMZ estimated in January that Steven and Krista have $50,000,000 between them to fight over, but given that Steven allegedly makes that in just TWO YEARS, it’s probably more than previously thought.
Levitan’s monthly earnings are thanks to his creation of Modern Family-the super-successful ABC sitcom that has 169 episodes– and the also-popular 1997 sitcom Just Shoot Me!
