LOS ANGELES (September 22, 2006) — After a little more than three years of marriage, Matt LeBlanc’s divorce has been finalized.
The 39-year-old former “Friends” star has been granted joint custody of his 2-year-old daughter with wife Melissa LeBlanc, according to court papers filed Wednesday. Melissa LeBlanc has two children from a previous marriage.
The LeBlancs filed for divorce on April 6, citing irreconcilable differences. They will be officially single again on Oct. 6.
Under the terms of the divorce, LeBlanc will be financially responsible for his daughter’s education, nanny and other needs. He will also pay $15,000 a month in child support.
Calls to LeBlanc’s attorney and his publicist after business hours Thursday were not immediately returned.The pair married in a celebrity-studded wedding in Hawaii in 2003 with several of LeBlanc’s “Friends” co-stars in attendance.
LeBlanc played struggling actor Joey Tribbiani in the long-running sit-com that ended in 2004. He reprised the character for the NBC spinoff “Joey,” which was canceled in May after two seasons.
