Dancing With the Stars pro Cheryl Burke and ex Matthew Lawrence have finalized their divorce, making a — mostly — clean split. According to documents obtained by Us Weekly, Burke, 38, and Lawrence, 42, will be honoring their prenuptial agreement that was signed before they got married.
In the contract, the former couple agreed that Burke will keep all of her DWTS royalties and earnings, along with residuals and money earned while working with QVC. The Boy Meets World alum, for his part, will walk away with all of his own respective royalties.
The pair, who also agreed to waive any spousal support, will continue to dispute over one claim — ownership of their dog, Ysabella. “The court expressly reserves jurisdiction for later determination of the issue of the ownership of the dog “Isabella,” the documents state.
On May 20, 2019, Petitioner and Respondent entered into a Premarital Agreement. The (agreement) is valid and enforceable in all respects, and neither Party challenges the validity of the Premarital Agreement.
“As far as the divorce goes, you know, it’s slowly getting there,” the Dance Moms alum said on Thursday, September 8. “There’s no rush. It’s not like I’ve got someone else to marry tomorrow, nor do I want that. I’m not even dating anybody at the moment.”
The twosome exchanged vows in May 2019 after dating on and off for more than a decade. After two years of marriage, however, Burke filed for divorce. In court documents obtained by Us in February, the dancer cited “irreconcilable differences” and listed the pair’s separation date as January 7.
