Dr. Now and Delores McRedmond tied the knot in 1975, and they ended up having three children together. There’s Jonathan, the producer of “My 600-lb Life,” as well as Jennifer and Jessica. While all marriages have their ups and downs, the couple decided to call it quits in 2002 after 27 years of marriage. In court documents published by Justia, McRedmond claimed the reason for the divorce was a result of “cruel treatment” at the hands of her husband, as well as “insupportability.” Dr. Now launched a counter petition where he also claimed “insupportability.” What followed was a two-year legal battle that got messy.
Based on the documents, it appears as though Dr. Now wasn’t exactly forthcoming with the materials the court requested of him. Throughout the proceedings, the court claimed “denying access to records” and “asserting baseless privileges” were just some of the reasons the separation dragged on longer than it needed to. In the end, the court “attributed fault in the breakup of the marriage” solely to Dr. Now, which resulted in him having to hand over 70 percent of all of their joint assets, including the marital home and cash.
Fortunately, it appears as though Dr. Now was able to hang onto his business, which is now more lucrative than ever before. Based on his regular work as a surgeon as well as his television appearances, it’s no wonder to see Dr. Now’s estimated net worth is around $6 million. There are no reports suggesting that Dr. Now is currently seeing anyone, so it looks like he’s got his relatively newfound fame and money all to himself.
