'Rogue One' Star Ben Mendelsohn Settles Divorce and Half of His 'Star Wars' Royalties Goes to Ex

By TheBlast Staff

It's not as costly as building a galactic superweapon, but "Rogue One" star Ben Mendelsohn's divorce will still hit him pretty hard in the wallet.

According to court documents obtained by The Blast, Mendelsohn will have to write a check to his ex-wife, British writer Emma Forrest, for $525,000.

Mendelsohn will also have to fork over half of the royalties and residuals for anything he made while the two were married — which includes "Rogue One: A Star Wars Story" and the Netflix series "Bloodline," which has earned him three Emmy nominations.

Forrest will get primary physical custody of their 5-year-old daughter, Carolina, and Ben will pay $7,152/month in child support. The docs state Mendelsohn makes $1.44 million a year, so that shouldn't be a problem.

It's not all bad news for Director Krennic, neither Mendelsohn nor Forrest will pay the other spousal support.

Mendelsohn and Forrest were married on June 3, 2012 and separated on October 1, 2016. Forrest filed for divorce in December 2016.
