“The Conners” star Michael Fishman has reached a settlement in the legal separation from his estranged wife that calls for him to keep a chunk of the money he made from “Roseanne” when he was a kid.
According to court documents obtained by The Blast, the actor and his ex, Jennifer Fishman, reached a deal that will finalize their split. Per their deal, she will keep their marital home but Michael will pay the mortgage.
Michael will not pay spousal or child support to his ex and they will share primary custody of their minor child. The two will split several bank accounts and she keeps the 2008 Ford Edge, while Michael will get the 2001 Ford Expedition.
In the documents, it notes, “The Parties agree and understand that Respondent had a career prior to their marriage and as such, Respondent had assets prior to their marriage some of which were and/or are still controlled by the Respondent’s parent(s). The Parties also recognize that the Respondent’s parent(s) created accounts for the benefit of Respondent after the marriage some of which the Respondent and Petitioner were unable to fully review prior to entering into this Agreement.”
As a result, Jennifer agreed not to pursue any financial interest in that money or those accounts.
In December 2018, Jennifer Fishman filed for legal separation from Michael Fishman, citing irreconcilable differences.
The couple has been together for 19 years and they have two teenage children together — only 16-year-old Isabella is a minor. Jennifer sought joint legal and physical custody.
Fishman’s acting resumé doesn’t feature much besides his “Roseanne” role — he appeared on one episode of “Seinfeld” and one episode of “Walker, Texas Ranger.”
