The former couple filed for divorce in December 2019 after five years of marriage. According to US Weekly, Gilbert and Perry received a partial judgment on Friday, October 15, where they also ruled that no child support would be payable to each other.
Sara Gilbert (46) and Linda Perry (56) will co-parent their 6-year old son, Rhodes. The former pair share joint custody of their son, according to legal proceedings. The exes cited 'irreconcilable differences' as the reason for their legal separation.
The duo's asset division and spousal financial support have not been revealed to the public.
How did Sara Gilbert come out?
Sara Gilbert dated her The Big Bang Theory and Roseanne co-star Johnny Galecki in the early 1990s. However, whilst dating Johnny, Sara realized that she was lesbian. Gilbert narrated her experience with this in an episode of The Talk in 2013. She reminisced:
"... we started dating, and he (Johnny) would come over, and we would make out, and then I would start to get depressed."
Sara further added:
"Johnny felt badly, I think, and started to take it personally and didn't know what was going on. So I eventually told him that I thought it was about my sexuality and he was super sweet about it."
In July 2010, Gilbert launched her show The Talk, where she officially confirmed her orientation.
