The chapter comes to a close. Nearly two years after announcing their separation, Soleil Moon Frye and ex-husband Jason Goldberg have finalized their divorce.
According to records filed on Friday, April 22, the Punky Brewster alum, 45, and the producer finalised their divorce. Goldberg will pay his ex-wife $18,996 in spousal support and $17,281 in child support every month as part of the settlement, for a total of $36,277 per month. The couple, who married in October 1998, will have joint custody of their four children: Poet (16), Jagger (13), Lyric (8), and Story (5).
Frye will keep the family’s home in Venice, California, but she will have to pay her ex $631,000 for it. The former pair will split royalties from Sabrina the Teenage Witch and the Punky Brewster relaunch in 2021, while Frye will keep any earnings from her work on shows like Saved by the Bell, The Wonder Years, and the original run of Punky Brewster from the 1980s and 1990s.
After 22 years of marriage, the Diff’rent Strokes actress and her ex-husband announced their split in December 2020.
In a statement at the time, a publicist for the actress said, “Soleil Moon Frye and Jason Goldberg quietly separated this year,” a rep for the actress told Us in a statement at the time. “Their priority will continue to be their four beautiful children as they move forward with love and compassion.”
In October 2008, the couple reaffirmed their vows in front of a famous guest list that included Demi Moore and Ashton Kutcher, both of whom were married at the time. (The 44-year-old alum of That ’70s Show has collaborated with Goldberg on a number of projects, including Punk’d and The Butterfly Effect.)
Frye talked on how she was attempting to be optimistic during her divorce last year. In March 2021, she told Page Six,“For me, I’m so grateful for the life that I’ve had,” she told Page Six in March 2021. “For the beautiful children I have, and I look at the amount of years which I’ve been able to share as a celebration. You don’t spend 22 years with someone and not celebrate it.”
In the same month, the former Friends star said that when she was 18 and he was 29, she had her “first consensual sexual experience” with Charlie Sheen. Frye called the 56-year-old Two and a Half Men alum “Mr. Big,” a reference to Chris Noth’s role in Sex and the City.
“It’s been the most strange and incredible day ever,” she said in her documentary Kid 90, reading from a 1994 diary entry. “He’s somebody I’ve had a crush on for years. He’s a person that intrigues me and excites me.”
Frye described the former Anger Management actor as a “kind and loving” friend with whom she has maintained a long friendship. Sheen, for one, described the author of Happy Chaos as a “decent egg” at the time.
