Ewan McGregor is reportedly set to pay half of his major film royalties to his ex-wife Eve Mavrakis, as part of their divorce settlement.

The actor filed to divorce his French wife back in January 2018, after 22 years of marriage.

TMZ has since reported that their divorce was finalised on Thursday, with a judge appointing them joint legal and physical custody of their youngest child, Anouk.

According to judgement documents, the former couple have agreed to split their assets – which means Ewan will be forced to share royalties and residuals from the projects he worked on during their marriage.

This includes four Star Wars films, the Trainspotting movies, Big Fish, Angels & Demons, and Moulin Rouge – to name a few.

On top of this, Eve is keeping their $6.62 million house in Los Angeles, and $501,704 in cash to even out the asset split.

She will also receive a base child support of $14,934 per month, and base spousal support of $35,868 per month.

Ewan and Eve confirmed they had split in October 2017, and the actor filed for divorce in January 2018.

The former couple share four children together – 24-year-old Clara, 19-year-old Jamyan, 18-year-old Esther and nine-year-old Anouk.

The news comes a year after Ewan’s eldest daughter, Clara, referred to his girlfriend Mary Elizabeth Winstead as “a piece of trash” on Instagram.

The model fired verbal shots at the 35-year-old, after a fan of the actress tagged Clara in a photo of Ewan and Mary kissing at the Vanity Fair Oscars party in 2014.

In the post’s caption, the fan had referred to Mary as “the most beautiful and talented woman on earth” – and Clara hit back at the comment.

“Most beautiful and talented woman on earth??? Oh man y’all are delusional. The girl is a piece of trash :),” she wrote in the comment section.

Clara later admitted she acted immaturely during an interview with The Times newspaper.

“It wasn’t the most mature way to go about things, but I was angry and upset,” she said. “There had been a lot building up to it and a lot to deal with – not to make excuses or anything – but, yeah, it wasn’t my finest moment.”

Clara added: “I wish them all the best, but I’m staying out of that, for sure.”
