William Shatner and his wife have officially settled their divorce, and the agreement isn’t just a normal split up of assets, this thing reads like a Hollywood movie script. Let’s just say…beach houses, horse semen, and a dog named “Double Espresso” are all apart of this deal.
According to the divorce settlement, obtained by The Blast, William Shatner and his wife Elizabeth entered into a pre-nuptial agreement before getting married so most of the financials were already spelled out.
The agreement states Shatner will pay $2 Million in spousal support in one lump sum, and that will be it for support.
Plus, Elizabeth will get the beach house in the premiere area of Malibu Colony and a property in Versailles, Kentucky. As for William, he will keep the couple’s house in Studio City, CA and a ranch property in Three Rivers, CA. (near sequoia national park)
Mrs. Shatner will have the right to collect a few items from the Studio City home including personal items like scuba gear, trophies, bikes, computers, etc. — But, she is also taking two expresso makers, a kitchen coffee maker, and the CROCKPOT! Yes, the crockpot is in the settlement agreement. But, we understand that one…once you have a good one you want to keep it!
Now the interesting part, the couple is forced to split up a bunch of animals including a host of horses. Shatner is well known for his involvement in the horse community.
According to the deal, Shatner will get two horses (Renaissance Man’s Medici and Powder River Shirley) and his now ex-wife will keep two horses, (Belle Reve’s So Photogenic and Pebbles)
Shockingly, Capt. Kirk is also getting the “horse semen” as a part of the agreement. Ya, that’s actually in the contract. To be clear, he is a breeder and that can be worth quite the pretty penny!
Also, Shatner is keeping the two dogs (Macchiato and Double Expresso) but his wife has the right to visit the animals and will work out timing with Bill.
It seems the couple both have a special place in their heart for the Three Rivers property because they have agreed that Elizabeth can “occasionally harvest some fruit” from the trees at the ranch as long as it is set up with William beforehand.
Also, they are in a tough situation with this home, because Elizabeth’s late husband’s ashes are located on the property and she will have the right to visit them even though William gets it in the divorce. She also wishes to visit a few horse graves that are also on the property.
The couple does not have any kids, so the only custody issues to discuss is that of the animals. It sounds like they have it all covered.
