“1000-Lb. Sisters” Stars Amy Slaton & Michael Halterman Have Officially Settled Their Divorce

The unhappy couple.

It’s officially over for 1000-Lb. Sisters stars Amy Slaton and Michael Halterman.

According to court documents obtained by The Sun, the estranged couple finalized their divorce on September 6 after a months-long heated court battle.

“Marital settlement agreement is approved and incorporated by reference as if set forth verbatim and the parties are ordered to obey the terms thereof,” a memo accompanying the divorce documents read.

As The Ashley reported, Michael filed for divorce back in March, though Amy took the first steps to end the marriage when she moved herself and their young sons in with her sister and co-star, Tammy Slaton, in February. Amy accused her former husband of “hitting” and “mistreating” their boys, Glenn and Gage, and filed an emergency protective order that same month. She later asked a judge to withdraw the order.

Per the divorce settlement, the exes have agreed to have shared custody of their sons.

The boys and their upbringing have long been a source of contention for the couple. Viewers of ‘1000-Lb. Sisters’ saw Amy’s frustration in a February episode in which Amy had just returned home from the hospital after Glenn’s C-section birth and Michael didn’t help her with the kids at a barbecue, but instead enjoyed his food.

“Daddy ain’t doin’ s**t. Sometimes I feel like I got three kids,” Amy said during the episode.

For his part, Michael didn’t want his young sons to be on TV.

“[Michael] doesn’t want the kids to be on the show, but Amy disagrees,” a source told The Sun back in March. “They have been fighting over this for months.”

No word yet if Michael and Amy’s son will continue to film for her TLC show. Amy and Tammy began filming the fifth season of ‘1000-Lb. Sisters’ in September. The Sun found Amy in Atlanta filming promotional footage for the new season earlier this month, a trip the boys joined her on. TLC hasn’t announced a premiere date for season five.

  1. All one has to do is look at the original reality families to know, filming your children never goes well. Ask the Gosselin or Duggar kids.

  2. I wish these stupid production companies would stop filming children period, especially for “reality tv”. Honestly, at this point, they’re all just contributing to the exploitation of children. It should be considered a crime. Yes I feel the same way for family vlogs, blogs, social media whores, and all the other bs that puts kids out there. Leave your kids out of your mess!

    Whatever other issues Amy and Michael may have had between themselves, he was never wrong in wanting the boys to not be filmed. The fact that Amy has said, on multiple occasions, she “needs” them to be filmed because it makes them more money is pretty damn telling. She’s not concerned about their wellbeing, just her paycheck.

    I honestly don’t care what went on, or goes on, between them as a couple. Neither one is all that great of a parent anyway, but at least Michael put some forethought into whether or not the children should be put in the limelight like that. He fought pretty hard to protect them in that right. It may have been, and may remain, the only good thought he’s ever had, but it was a damn good one.

    Amy can get off her fat ass and get a real job if she’s so concerned about not having enough money. I think it’s time “reality tv” went back to just exploiting grown adults for entertainment purposes. Let them screw themselves over being dumbasses on tv. At least it didn’t take advantage of people who can’t even consent.
