The actor and comedian Anthony Anderson has agreed to pay $20,000 per month in spousal support to his ex-wife Alvina Stewart, according to court documents obtained by TMZ. The couple finalized their divorce last week after 25 years of marriage.
Anderson, who stars in the hit sitcom Black-ish, will also pay half of the tuition and expenses for their two children, Kyra and Nathan, who are both in college. He will also cover the costs of their health insurance and any medical expenses not covered by insurance.
The divorce settlement also states that Anderson and Stewart will share joint legal and physical custody of their children, and that they will consult each other on major decisions regarding their education, health, and welfare.
Anderson and Stewart married in 1995 and separated in 2014. Stewart initially filed for divorce in 2015, but later withdrew the petition in 2017, sparking rumors of a reconciliation. However, she refiled for divorce in 2019, citing irreconcilable differences.
Anderson, who is also an executive producer and creator of Black-ish, has been nominated for seven Emmy Awards and four Golden Globe Awards for his role as Andre “Dre” Johnson, a successful advertising executive who struggles to balance his family life and his cultural identity. He also hosts the game show To Tell the Truth and has appeared in several movies, including Transformers, The Departed, and Barbershop.
