A Los Angeles judge finalized the divorce Monday with court documents obtained by E! News revealing how much the former American Idol runner up and current star of Scorpion will need to pay in spousal support.

McPhee will be expected to pay Cokas $102,616 upfront and then up to $400,000 a year afterwards. According to TMZ, the 31-year-old will be keeping her 2012 Mercedes-Benz M Class SUV while Cokas gets to retain their 2013 Jeep Wrangler.

The pair were married in February of 2008, two years after meeting in 2005 before McPhee rose to fame.

"After six years of marriage, and having been separated for the past year, Katharine McPhee has filed for a dissolution of marriage from Nick Cokas," McPhee said in a statement after filing for divorce. "The two have an amicable relationship and will remain friends. They ask that people respect their privacy during this time."

McPhee is currently dating her Scorpion co-star Elyes Gabel.
