According to TMZ, the co-creator of the popular television show “Friends,” Marta Kauffman, has divorced her husband of 31 years. Along with the divorce pleadings, Kauffman and Michael Skloff also filed their settlement paperwork. Thus, it appears there will not be any fighting in their divorce case even though Kauffman is estimated to be worth $200 million.
The couple has three grown children, Hannah, Sam and Rose, so custody or child support will not an issue. Interestingly, the couple did not have a prenuptial agreement, but they were also able to work out a settlement regarding their substantial amount of property and assets.
Kauffman’s Netflix series, “Grace and Frankie,” is a hit and has been renewed for a second season. The comedy stars Jane Fonda and Lily Tomlin who play rivalling wives who discover an odd connection through their husbands. Michael has his own wealth as he was the composer for the “Friends” theme song.
Kauffman attended the Television Critics Association Summer Press Tour over the summer and “The Wrap” covered her discussion of her transition from network television to the world of streaming. “It’s such a different situation, because ratings are connected to advertisers” she said, according to the Daily Mail, referring to the network model.
‘There are no advertisers on Netflix. And I think you’re hoping that I’ll say “It’s frustrating” but the truth is, it’s wonderful, because there’s only one thing we’re doing — we’re not pandering to advertisers, we’re not pandering to a network, all we’re doing is making the show we want and that we believe in.’
