Katharine McPhee, one of the stars of the hit show Scorpion, has finalized her divorce from her husband of six years, Nick Cokas. McPhee filed for divorce almost two years ago, shortly after she was spotted kissing her Smash director Michael Morris. Morris was married, too.

Nick Cokas made out very well in the divorce settlement. Katharine McPhee will pay her ex up to $400,000 per year in spousal support, in addition to $102,616 she must pay him within the next couple of days.

E! News reports the former couple will split all of Katharine McPhee's earnings from her now-cancelled NBC show Smash. He will get 50 percent of any songs she created while they were married.

Nick Cokas will walk away with a 2013 Jeep Wrangler, while Katharine McPhee will keep her 2012 Mercedes-Benz M Class SUV.

The American Idol alum claimed she and Cokas were separated when she was caught kissing her Smash director.

Katharine McPhee is now dating one of her Scorpion co-stars--Elyes Gabel.

Do you suppose Katharine McPhee is more upset over destroying her marriage to Nick Cokas or over the money she now has to pay out--as a result of her betrayal?
