'OITNB' Creator Jenji Kohan Divorces Husband of 21 Years, Denies Spousal Support Request

Kohan and Christopher Noxon, who share three children together, have no prenup which means she may lose a lot of her fortune.

AceShowbiz - "Orange Is the New Black" creator Jenji Kohan is calling it quits with Christopher Noxon after more than two decades together. The 49-year-old TV writer and producer has filed for divorce from her husband of 21 years, TMZ reports.

According to the site, Kohan cites irreconcilable differences as the reason of the separation. Noxon is reportedly requesting for spousal support, while Kohan is asking to deny him spousal support. Moreover, the two have no prenup and given that they have been married for a long time, before she became famous, they may split their fortune 50/50.

While this could turn messy, the former couple seems to be handling their separation amicably. Noxon filed his response to the divorce at the same time Kohan filed her documents, hinting that they're working together in the divorce process.

Noxon, who is a writer, is repped by attorney Lisa Helfend Meyer. As for Kohan, she is repped by famous divorce attorney Laura Wasser. The estranged couple shares three children together, daughter Eliza and sons Charlie and Oscar. Two of them are in high school, while another is in college.

Kohan has received nine Emmy Award nominations and won one as supervising producer of the comedy series "Tracey Takes On...". Before creating the Netflix series "OITNB", she gained fame for creating Showtime's dark comedy-drama "Weeds". She is currently also serving as executive producer for Netflix's sports comedy series "GLOW".

"Weeds" ended its run after eight seasons in September 2012, while "OITNB" will conclude after its seventh season which is scheduled to be released in 2019. Last year, she signed a multi-year overall deal with Netflix to produce new original series and other projects for the streaming giant. This deal and the success of her previous shows make her worth a fortune.
