REAL Housewives of Orange County star Gina Kirschenheiter "won $230K" in her nasty divorce from ex Matthew Kirschenheiter one year after his domestic violence arrest.
Matt never appeared in RHOC but the housewife often brought him up in conversations – she even told her costars about the night he attacked her in a rage.
According to a series of court documents obtained by The Blast, Gina, 36, agreed to let Matt off the hook for child and spousal support in exchange for $230,000.
Neither party will be paying the other party after a judge ordered Matt last year to pay the reality TV star $10K a month to financially support their three children.
However, sources claimed that the disgraced ex-husband never made any of the payments.
Additionally, their new deal also states that Matt will not be paid any spousal support after he pleaded with the court to make Gina pay him monthly support due to the increase in her income.
He also won't have to pay her any spousal support.
The court documents further stated that the couple agreed to split $467,127.39 held in their joint retirement account, marking the end of their nasty court battle.
Matt was arrested in June 2019 after the two had a heated argument at Gina’s home, where he allegedly choked her, hit her, dragged her, threw her, and threatened to kill her – all while their three young kids were sleeping in the home.
The couple share three children, Sienna, 5, Nicholas, 7, and Luca, 4.
He was charged with felony corporal injury – on spouse/cohabitant and felony false imprisonment affected by violence, menace, fraud, or deceit.
He pleaded not guilty.
The mother of three even recounted the night of his arrest on the RHOC reunion in December 2019.
"He was just like a different person," she sobbed to a horrified Andy Cohen. "It was really scary.
"I ran out of the house, and I rang my neighbor’s doorbell, and I was banging on the door.
"And he dragged me back in the house. A lot of the neighbors heard.
"They all called the police and then the cops came, they arrested him."
Following his arrest, Matt claimed he lost his lucrative job as a result of the bad press following his arrest last year.
His attorney added: "Life has changed considerably … had it not been in the press, his job would not have been lost.
“It would’ve been quiet and on the back burner like every other normal citizen, but it’s been part of The Real Housewives.
"And she’s talked about it publicly on Real Housewives, so my client is really getting slammed in his personal life by the Petitioner’s desire to engage in the reality show.”
Gina, however, has now moved on with another man, Travis Mullen, who also has three children of his own.
The new couple moved into their first home back in March and have been quarantined with their six children.
The Bravo star even has a newfound love for fitness.
