Being addicted to your wife is one thing, being addicted to drugs is another. Which is supposedly why Gretchen Bonaduce divorced her husband, Danny, after 16 years of marriage. Now Danny Bonaduce has agreed to pay $16,000 a month in child support and alimony.
According to People, he will also get joint custody of his two children, a 13-year-old daughter and 7-year-old son. The way the settlement breaks down is that he will pay $6,000 to his kids and $10,000 for his wife. Gretchen Bonaduce filed for divorce in 2007 after the two appeared in the VH1 reality show Breaking Bonaduce.
The two will also split their accumulated assets. Obviously the couple tried to work it out but sometimes the strains and pains of dealing with a partner’s substance abuse creates such a breakdown of trust that it cannot be repaired.
The Bonaduces do plan on co-parenting their kids amicably and with affection.
Now a DJ, Danny Bonaduce was best known for playing the red-headed kid with the bass in the TV show The Partridge Family.
