She also got child support of $36,000 per month. to say the least, the divorce was a rather messy one, as while she did her best to keep her ex-husband away from their daughter, Robert did all he could to cut her away from any finances.

With everything now behind her, Rebecca has since stayed away from the public, raising her daughter away from the eyes of the media.
