David Foster Blocks Yolanda Hadid From Seeking Spousal Support


David Foster is making sure that his ex-wife Yolanda Hadid will not receive any spousal support, and he’s pulling out all stops to make sure the RHOBH star won’t receive a dime!

According to court documents obtained by PEOPLE magazine, Foster is working to “terminate the ability of the court to award spousal support” to Yolanda. In turn, Hadid would be free of paying Foster spousal support as well.

Yolanda announced her split from David in December and filed for divorce in January, seeking spousal support and legal fees from her ex-husband. The cause for the marriage troubles seemed to be Yolanda’s battle with Lyme disease and Hadid even said David’s role as the caregiver was “extremely challenging” for them both.

However, David continues to publicly support Yolanda. “I have always had and continue to have the utmost respect and love for Yolanda, which is why it is so frustrating to see headlines questioning her chronic debilitating illness,” he said recently.

“I have been by Yolanda’s side over the past four years to the best of my ability as she battled with the complexities of her Lyme diagnosis,” Foster added. “I am incredibly proud of Yolanda’s determination and mission to find a cure, and how brave and open she has been by sharing her story in the hopes of changing the future for others.”

My name is Nicki. I am 32 years-old and married to my best friend. I was previously in business for over 12 years, but I’ve always had a great passion for web and graphic design. Another one of my passions, of course, is to escape into the world of TV, which is where this journey began. My goal in starting AllThingsRH.com was to give fans, like myself, a place to catch up on all the latest news and gossip about The Real Housewives. I wanted to create a place where viewers could interact with each other, share their opinions, and get straight-forward and unbiased information about what’s going on. I am proud of the diversity this site has to offer.

    This is a manipulative misleading headline. They are BOTH not wanting to pay each other spousal support. So it’s not just him .
    Come on!!!!!!!

  • It makes sense to me to forfeit spousal support in order to avoid either one of them having to pay. In my divorce, we were both entitled to each other’s pensions, so we both signed an agreement that neither of us would go after the other’s. If this divorce is so amicable, why go after the other one’s finances…just my humble opinion 😀

    Here we go again. Of course she is seeking spousal support. That is what lawyers are for, to get more and more money for their client and by doing so, themselves too. I wonder what prenuptial agreements are good for anyway, if it seems, and maybe I am wrong, that in the end, people still end up wanting what they probably should not even receive, according to these agreements. It is not as if Yolanda did not come into the marriage with enough wealth, nor David. They should both just walk away and call it quits, but I am sure the lawyers are making it harder to do that. They love to milk the wealthy divorces, trying to make them go on for years, while they line their own pockets more and more. That is just my opinion. I don’t know it all or pretend to know it all.

    • Well then, you are certainly not Bethenny..lol…

      • Real Sandy⛱

        Those lawyers probably bought new homes, fancy cars and more on that divorce too.

        • I was referring to you saying that you didn’t “know it all”..lol.

          • Real Sandy⛱

            Yes, Bethenny knows it all…according to herself, anyway. I did not get it at first. 😉

    Who knows what the truth is and to be honest I have given up caring re Yo! So just let the two of them sort it out with their lawyers.

    Who cares?!?!?!?

    She doesn’t need spousal support and neither does he. The lawyers aren’t going to do anything unless their clients tell them to do it, so I highly doubt their lawyers need or want more money. She’s crazy and he had enough. It wasn’t even a marriage actually since she clinically has the emotional stability of a child and he wanted the arm ornament. Learn you lesson David. Beauty fades, dumb is forever.

        I agree completely with this article…if there is a prenup, everything is already decided and signed off on…. there should be no need for a divorce attorney. The Hadid-Foster Divorce will now take 4 times longer and cost 6 times as much. I don’t care about either one of them, though…so…yay!.

        • Real Sandy⛱

          I don’t care either about these two. They should have had a mediator and just left amicably. I just know that wealthy people take years to get divorced a lot of the time, and those with fewer assets get practically overnight divorces. I see people paying over 50,000 and suing their spouse for the fees and still not divorced…until they are broke most likely.

    Ask 10 lawyers a legal question and you’ll get 11 different answers.

    “Foster is working to “terminate the ability of the court to award spousal support” to Yolanda.” What that sounds like to me is Foster is trying to appeal a ruling that hasn’t even been made yet or he’s trying break a pre-nup. Or he’s trying to change California law. It will be interesting to see how this plays out.

    Good for David……. No one could convince me that Yo needs the money. Nope wont believe. She is doing just fine. If she needs help she can ask her supermodel daughter. Let them take care of her.

    Having big a prenuptial agreement drawn up over 32 years ago protected the family businesses in both sides and YES we are still married.

  • Kat

    It should have said. Having a prenuptial drawn up…….
