- The TV mogul, 71, filed for divorce from the beauty influencer in July of 2022; they had married in October of 2018 and separated in May of 2022
- He agreed to pay $5 million in their divorce settlement last week, which is more than what was agreed in their ‘ironclad’ prenup
- Lorre, who created shows such as Two and a Half Men and The Big Bang Theory, is estimated to be worth more that $600 million
Chuck Lorre has settled his divorce with Arielle Lorre, more than a year-and-a-half after filing for a split from the beauty influencer.
The TV mogul, 71, who filed for divorce from Arielle, 38, in July of 2022, agreed to pay $5 million in their divorce settlement last week, TMZ reported Wednesday after reviewing court documents.
The creator of shows such as Two and a Half Men, The Big Bang Theory and Young Sheldon also received primary custody of the dog the former couple shared, named Harvey.
Arielle was given ‘liberal visitation’ of the dog, according to court docs reviewed by the outlet.
Insiders told the outlet that the $5 million total Lorre paid actually eclipses the sum he initially agreed to pay in an ironclad prenuptial agreement the couple agreed to when they wed in October of 2018. It was not immediately clear why he paid the higher amount.

Under the financial terms of the settlement, according to court docs, the Emmy-nominated writer-producer – who is on good terms with Charlie Sheen, 58, these days after years of publicly feuding – paid out $1 million when the court judgment was initially issued.
He is slated to pay Arielle another $4 million in a span of 30 days after she moved out of the home they once shared. Arielle on February 1 agreed to move out, the outlet reported.
Both parties agreed to a non-disparagement clause as result of their settlement, in that they will not publicly disparage the other.
Forbes estimated Lorre had made $100 million from his work in TV in 2022, its list of the year’s highest-paid entertainers.
Lorre previously said in court docs that he and Arielle were parting as result of ‘irreconcilable differences.’
In a statement to People at the time, Lorre and Arielle said, ‘It is with mutual consideration and respect that we have decided to separate.
‘Our plan is to move forward in different directions but with great love, admiration and gratitude for the time we shared. We ask that you respect our privacy during this difficult time. Thank you for your support.’
Lorre was previously married two times before his marriage to Arielle: To former business partner Paula Smith, from 1979-1992; and to Karen Witter, a one-time Playboy Playmate, between 2001 and 2010. He is father to two daughters from his first marriage: Nicole and Asa.

In early 2012, his relationship with actress Emmanuelle Vaugier, 47, who played the role of Mia on 12 episodes of Two And A Half Men between 2005-2015, ended after Vaugier correctly suspected him of cheating on her.
An insider told RadarOnline.com at the time that Vaugier ‘was away for a month working in Vancouver, and heard from a friend that Chuck had been spotted out with another woman.
‘She confronted him about it when she got back, and he eventually admitted to it … everybody loves Emmanuelle, and can’t believe the way this has happened.’
Vaugier ‘was left devastated by his infidelity,’ the source told the outlet.
Lorre made headlines amid his long-running feud with Sheen, who he ultimately replaced with Ashton Kutcher on Two and a Half Men in 2011 amid a fiery war of words.
The two recently reunited to work on Lorre’s HBO series Bookie, in which Sheen plays a fictionalized version of himself.
‘I don’t want to be too mawkish about it, but it was healing,’ Lorre told Variety in November of working with Sheen again. ‘When he came to the table read of that episode, I walked up, and we hugged. It was just great.’
