Divorce is anything but a pleasing experience. The aspect of this difficult situation that many find the most egregious is paying for settlements. Silicon Valley and Solar Opposites star, Thomas Middleditch recently found himself agreeing to cough up $2.6 million to his now ex wife, Mollie Gates.
The settlement came after Gates began filling for divorce back in May of last year. The seven figure settlement is scheduled in payments that end in December of 2022. Among the funds, Gates also is to receive all personal assets that were shared since they tied the knot in August 2015.

“Thomas will keep multiple properties, include a house and a condo in Los Angeles, a Big Bear cabin, and a home in Canada,” as stated by Extra Tv, “He’ll keep his residuals, business entities, as well as his car.”
Stories of the couples struggles flooded media outlets with a great deal of attention being paid to their decision to keep their marriage open.
“Mollie and I have created our own rules, and compared to most of the people we’ve met who do this kind of sh*t, our rules are strict,” the actor tells in a 2019 interview with Playboy, “We’re not off on our own; we’re together, a unit.”
Though he went on to attribute their openness to “saving their marriage”, he disclosed how it was not the case on a podcast called Last Laugh.
“be honest, it’s a thing I wish I could take back. It was poor execution,” he says, “But I’ve learned to keep things a little more close to the chest.”
This comes after allegations of sexual misconduct against the actor. In 2019, at a goth themed LA club named Cloak and Dagger, Middleditch was said to have made unwanted sexual advances to girls in the club’s “Black Room”.
Messages from the actor were sent to the victim and shown in a Los Angeles Times article.
“I had no idea my actions were that weird for you,” Middleditch messages the victim, “I know you probably want to just put me on blast as a monster … I don’t expect you to want to be my friend or anything … I am so ashamed I made you uncomfortable.”
The actor may have gotten off the hook with these allegations, but from his humongous civil settlement payment, it’s clear that his first moments of bachelor life may not be as glamorous they seem.
