“American Pickers” star Mike Wolfe is generally happy to share the details of his life. He inspires people to follow their passions and encourages a love of history. However, the TV personality has gone through his share of rough times. After more than a year since his wife, Jodi, filed for divorce – the news broke that the couple’s split was finalized.
The Sun reports that on December 6, the “American Pickers” star’s 10-year marriage was officially over. However, the door isn’t closed entirely on that relationship. That’s because Wolfe was ordered to pay child support, alimony, royalties, and nearly $6 million to Jodi.
Jodi Wolfe filed for a divorce from the TV star after a decade over “irreconcilable differences.”
According to the divorce docs, Wolfe must pay Jodi child support for their 9-year-old daughter each month as she will be the primary parent (due to his busy filming schedule). For this, he owes $2,100 per month. Additionally, the “American Pickers” host will have to provide his ex with a written notice if he’s unable to take his daughter during his scheduled time.

Mike Wolfe on New Projects Amid Divorce
Earlier this year, the “American Pickers” star shared he was moving on with model Leticia Cline. The two seem incredibly happy – reports indicate that she has even met Wolfe’s family, including his mother.
Additionally, while navigating the messy divorce, Wolfe continues to work on several projects. This includes a Tennessee AirBnB for fans of the show.
Of the property, Wolfe says that he had an interest in the tourism industry for a really long time.
“Some people may not know, but for the past 30 years, I have been selling to designers and decorators,” says Wolfe. “It has been a major part of my business. This is the first time that I’ve been able to utilize that experience inside my own space for other people to experience. I’m on the road six months out of the year.”
He went on to add: “I check-in to a lot of hotels and Airbnbs, so I understand what travelers need when they’re looking to relax after a long day in a space that feels like home. This entire project is all about creating an experience in Columbia, not just for a few hours in town, but for a long weekend.”
