The divorce became final on December 17, 2018.
According to the final divorce decree, Jerrod paid his wife a “$170,000 cash lump sum.” Both parties retained their personal cars, while Morgan assumed total possession of a Nashville house she paid the mortgage on. Jerrod was awarded assets in a family trust, including a Nashville property. Neither party is entitled to alimony or spousal support.
