Giada De Laurentiis is finally divorced from fashion designer Todd Thompson, and it's no secret the divorce came at a cost. Some sources are hinting that the Food Network star was all too happy to pay big bucks to end her marriage so she could resume her relationship with Bobby Flay.

Bobby Flay has reportedly been in hot water more than once for infidelity during his marriage to Law & Order star Stephanie March. Was Giada De Laurentiis among those he was unfaithful with while still married to the actress?

Giada De Laurentiis and Todd Thompson will share custody of their seven-year-old daughter Jade. She will pay him $9,000 in child support payments, however.

Todd Thompson and Giada De Laurentiis didn't have a prenuptial agreement. This means Thompson has walked away with the former couple's $3.2 million house in Pacific Palisades, California. He will also receive 50 percent of the unpaid advances to several cookbooks that Giada has in the works.

Giada announced her split from Thompson back in December--around the time she and Bobby Flay were spotted dining out together.

“Although our decision to separate comes with a great deal of sadness, our focus on the future and overwhelming desire for our family’s happiness has given us the strength to move forward on separate, yet always connected paths. Todd and I share a beautiful daughter and a lifetime of great memories that we both treasure more than anything,” she wrote on her Facebook page.

Both Giada De Laurentiis and Bobby Flay have denied being romantically involved with one another, saying instead that they have been longtime close friends.

Do you think the finalization of Giada's divorce indicates the beginning of something new between her and Bobby Flay?
