Cheyenne Jackson Hires “High-Powered” Attorney For Quick Split

Screen Shot 2013-08-07 at 4.48.50 PMCheyenne Jackson’s divorce proceedings may not be as juicy as you’d hoped.

After leaving his husband for a brand new life in West Hollywood—complete with a new boy toy, some fresh ink, and a handlebar mustache—Page Six reports that Jackson and Monte Lapka are eager to settle and will “most likely” not appear in court.

Sources claim that both men have hired high-powered law firms to reach a quick settlement. Lapka has reportedly chosen Aronson Mayefsky & Sloan, who handled the divorces of Katie Holmes and Bethenny Frankel. Jackson has gone with Chemtob Moss Forman & Talbert, who boast Ginny Barber and Diandra Douglas as former clients.

But are “high-powered” attorneys really that necessary? How many boxes of Ramen noodles can Cheyenne Jackson be worth?

In short, don’t expect a knock-down, drag-out catfight. Page Six says “the proceedings are moving along amicably and a deal is very close to being finalized.”

    Who cares? With 70% of us still not allowed to marry he is already on to gay divorce #1. Frustrates the shit out of me.

    Gays Gone Hollywood. If NPH becomes a meth head and divorces his husband I will truly be crushed. Cheyenne is nothing more than a pretty chelsea boy who can carry a tune.

    How self centered and vapid, kissing your own cardboard cut out. How douchey. Next.

    If only more couples – straight and gay – could have amicable divorces, the world would be a much nicer place. Appalling how much cash lawyers make dragging these things out as much as possible. Pre-nupts are the way to go.

    @onahigh23: I am with you there. It makes me wonder why he even married Monte in the first place, they had been together for years before they married. Didn’t he know by then that he no longer loved him? I feel so bad for Monte. :( I used to have such admiration for Cheyenne.

    And for the record, I was never “hoping” for a “juicy” divorce. I hate that this divorce is even happening at all. I hope that Monte can find someone who truly loves and values him and won’t cheat on him and treats him with the respect that he deserves.
