Court documents obtained by TMZ Sports allegedly show Derek and Candace both “signed documents agreeing to destroy the embryos that were on ice at a California reproductive center.” It’s very controversial because there has always been a big debate about when life actually begins, but Derek and Candace were reportedly on the same page about destroying the unborn babies.
Unfortunately, not everyone sees eye-to-eye on the matter. In fact, Modern Family star Sofia Vergara and her ex-fiance, Nick Loeb, are still in the midst of a legal battle over the fate of their frozen embryos, as HollywoodLife.com previously reported.
Along with destroying their embryos, the divorce settlement also states that Derek will give Candace $109,000 a month in spousal support. Furthermore, he’ll reportedly pay her $15k per month in child support for their 9-year-old twin sons. In total, she’ll receive $124,000 a month, which nearly equals $1.5 million a year!
Their divorce was marked official as of May 24, a judge decided, which finally puts an end to their 10-year marriage. Currently, Derek is reportedly dating Basketball Wives LA star Gloria Govan.
