Chuck Lorre has resolved his divorce from Arielle Lorre, more than a year and a half after he filed for separation from the beauty influencer.

The 71-year-old TV mogul, who filed for divorce from Arielle, 38, in July 2022, agreed last week to pay $5 million in his divorce settlement, TMZ reported Wednesday after reviewing court documents.

The creator of shows like “Two and a Half Men,” “The Big Bang Theory” and “Young Sheldon” also received sole custody of the former couple's dog named Harvey.

According to court documents viewed by the outlet, Arielle was granted “permissive visitation” with the dog.

Insiders told the outlet that the total of $5 million Lorre paid actually dwarfs the amount the couple originally agreed to pay in an ironclad prenuptial agreement when they married in October 2018. It was not immediately clear why he paid the higher amount.

According to court documents, the Emmy-nominated writer and producer – who is on good terms with Charlie Sheen after years of public conflict these days – paid out $1 million as part of the financial terms of the settlement at the initial court ruling.

He is supposed to pay Arielle another million dollars within 30 days of her moving out of their house. Arielle agreed to move out on February 1, the outlet reported.

As a result of their settlement, both parties agreed to a non-disparagement clause, which states that they will not publicly disparage the other.

Lorre previously said in court documents that he and Arielle separated due to “irreconcilable differences.”

In a statement to People at the time, Lorre and Arielle said, “Out of mutual consideration and respect, we have decided to separate.”

“Our plan is to move forward in different directions, but with great love, admiration and gratitude for our time together.” We ask that you respect our privacy during this difficult time. Thank you for your support.'

Lorre had been married twice before his marriage to Arielle: to former business partner Paula Smith from 1979 to 1992; and to Karen Witter, a former Playboy Playmate, between 2001 and 2010.

He is the father of two daughters from his first marriage: Nicole and Asa.
