Ewan McGregor ordered half of his Star Wars fortune and £ 5 million family home to be turned over to the ex-wife


The ex-wife strikes back! Ewan McGregor is tasked with donating half of his Star Wars fortune, £ 5 million family home, and five of his beloved cars to production designer Eve Mavrakis

On a summer evening they smile at the camera and look like typical happy family.

But the photo, taken to tag two of Ewan McGregor's daughters who went to college, came to his ex on the same day the Hollywood actor was directed to donate a staggering amount of his fortune – and future income – to his ex – Wife to pass Eva Mavrakis.

After the couple's sharp breakup, a California judge ruled that the 49-year-old actor, who dated Fargo co-star Mary Elizabeth Winstead after his marriage ended in 2017, must surrender half of the royalty he played in four Star Wars films.

This picture was posted to her Instagram page on Aug. 14, titled "My little beans are going to college, I'm so proud of you two".

It was also announced yesterday that production designer Ms. Mavrakis bought the family home in Los Angeles worth £ 5 million, plus approximately £ 400,000 in cash, jewelry and five of McGregor's 34-person car collection, which includes his prized blue Volkswagen Beetle , is retained.

Ms. Mavrakis, 53, will also reportedly receive around £ 12,000 a month in child support and £ 30,000 in spouse payments, as well as some of the royalties McGregor paid from the Angels And Demons, The Men Who Stare at Goats and Moulin Rouge films .

The couple will share legal and physical custody of their youngest daughter, nine-year-old Anouk.

McGregor filed for divorce in 2018. This year, filings were filed with the LA Supreme Court showing that he and Ms. Mavrakis were already involved in a money dispute.

The newspapers revealed that the Trainspotting star believed he was paying more than he was required to pay to support his family, while Ms. Mavrakis – who described the breakup as "disappointing and disturbing" – believed the amount was too small.

On Friday, when the divorce was finalized after 22 years of marriage, the couple put their differences aside to hold a party for daughters Esther and Jamyan – the child they adopted from Mongolia – to celebrate their college graduation.

The pictures posted on Instagram by her older sister Clara [24] were accompanied by the message: "My little beans are going to college, I'm so proud of both of you. Notre petite family."

The couple, who met on the set of crime thriller Kavanagh QC, first confirmed their split in 2017 after claims that McGregor kissed Miss Winstead, 35, in a London restaurant.

Ewan McGregor reportedly dated Mary Elizabeth Winstead, who starred with him in Fargo

Blaming "irreconcilable differences" for the breakup, Ewan McGregor then began dating Mary Elizabeth Winstead, which reportedly led his eldest daughter, Clara, to become angry

Around the same time, Ms. Mavrakis was pictured without her wedding ring.

McGregor, blaming "irreconcilable differences" for the breakup, then began dating Miss Winstead. However, his decision made the couple's eldest daughter, Clara, angry.

In July last year, she described the actress on Instagram as "a piece of trash" that accompanied a photo of her father and Miss Winstead kissing at the 2014 Vanity Fair Oscars party.

Clara, a budding actress, said afterward, "It wasn't the most sophisticated way of getting things done, but I was angry and upset."

According to Clara, there were things that went on behind the scenes that eventually sent her over the edge.

"A lot had built up and a lot to do – no excuses or anything – but yeah, it wasn't my best moment," she admitted.
