Christian filed for divorce on September 22, 2016— only days after Sutton’s birthday on September 20. Christian and Sutton disagreed on the date of separation. He claimed it happened on May 31, 2016 while she said it happened later.

Per their deal, the couple agreed to split their art collection spread throughout their homes in Los Angeles and Georgia — along with the pieces in storage.

Christian was awarded several bank accounts with over $1.4 million, one-half of a retirement account with over $500k in it, and one-half interest in the couple’s various businesses.

On RHOBH’s 13th season premiere, Sutton spoke candidly about her divorce.

“When my ex-husband and I got married, we were on equal footing,” she said. Sutton said she stopped working after giving birth to her first child.

“My power diminished,” she said, “this became here’s your allowance.”

Sutton said not having a job forced her to rely on her husband for money.

“I realized, wow, I allowed that to happen. I will never allow that to happen again,” she said.

“Spousal support – they come with an anchor,” Sutton confessed. “I’m not going to give that up… but I don’t want the anchor. I don’t want it. I want complete freedom.”
