Bill Murray and Jennifer Butler Murray have finalised their divorce.
The court documents, dated June 13, were issued a month after Jennifer accused the 'Groundhog Day' actor of adultery and drug use.
Under the terms of their separation, Bill, 57, must pay costume designer Jennifer a lump sum of $7 million, as stated in their pre-nuptial agreement.
Bill is required to pay child support for all four of his children, who Jennifer, 42, has full custody of. She will also keep all of the couple's properties in her name.
A month ago, Jennifer filed a six-page document accusing the 'Lost in Translation' star of adultery, addiction to marijuana and alcohol, abusive behaviour, physical abuse and sexual addictions.
She claimed to have been abused on more than one occasion, with one document revealing, "Bill hit his wife in the face and then told her she was 'lucky he didn't kill her'."
Bill's attorney said: "He is deeply saddened by the break-up of his marriage. He and his wife are loving parents and they are committed to the best interests of their children."
