The journey so far
Jennifer had an amazing career, but the world will always know her as “Baby” from the romantic film “Dirty Dancing”. The movie was a big hit. Along with co-star Patrick Swayze, “Dirty Dancing” was actually the second movie they worked on together, the first being “Red Dawn”. Later, she went through a major setback in her acting career. In 1987, she was secretly dating her co-star from the film “Ferris Bueller’s Day Off”. they had gone on a vacation and met with an accident injuring themselves as well as a mother and her child, leaving her with nothing but guilt.
Grey and Gregg had started dating in the year 2000, followed by a beautiful ceremonial marriage on Martha’s Vineyard beach on July 21, 2001. Plenty of celebrities had attended the ceremony. After a few months of tying the knot, they welcomed their daughter, Stella, in December 2001. On June 10, Gregg had posted a picture of all the three on Instagram, celebrating his daughter’s high school graduation.
Though they have been staying away from each other, both celebrate their daughter’s victories and post each other’s photos via social media. Grey posts family pictures on her social media showing her affection for them. Even after the split, they respect each other immensely. They would be jointly supporting their daughter’s financial needs until she turns 24.
Reactions on the split
There are bleak chances that Hollywood couples stay in long, committed marriage due to various factors. The blow of this split on the fans has been really hard. Unlike other celebrity relationships, there hasn’t been any involvement of a third party. They parted on good terms; they tried their best but couldn’t be with each other.
The possessions after Divorce
Both have agreed to have ownership of their family home under the terms of the divorce agreement. Well, Jennifer will be having a higher power of possession over the property.
The actress will be receiving the pay of “Dirty Dancing” and “Dirty Dancing: Havana Nights” along with separate property and 100% pay for the formerly mentioned films. She will also be keeping her intellectual property of the Dance studio concept. She will be keeping her Audi Q7 lease, the family dog, Dorothy as well.
Gregg had acquired some help from his ex-spouse, and hence they have agreed to split the net proceeds, royalties, and pay from 37 projects so far, which comprise “Thor”, “Iron Man”, “The Avengers” and “Marvel’s Agents of the S.H.I.E.L.D.”
Jennifer will be receiving 10% of Gregg’s earnings if his character as Agent Coulson reprises. Also, she would receive 5% of the earnings if his character reprises in the TV series.
