Chrissy Teigen's mom, Vilailuck, is now a player in the Hollywood scene after we've learned she brought in several massive paychecks working alongside her famous daughter, including a six-figure cookbook deal!
According to new legal documents, obtained by The Blast, Teigen's parents have settled their divorce. In the settlement, her mother Vilailuck will be keeping all of the money she earned working in the entertainment business.
Making Bank In Hollywood!
In the filing, Chrissy's parents have agreed to waive any payments of spousal support to each other, and say they have been split up since 2017.
What's most impressive is the list of paychecks Vilailuck brought in working in Hollywood, all of which were all listed in the settlement.
According to the documents, Teigen's mom brought in $17,500 for her appearance in the Impossible Burger promotion. Plus, she also pulled in $7,500 for the Hulu commercial. You know the one!

But, the famous mother brought in some massive paychecks too! The filing says she made $60,000 for appearances on Chrissy's new court show Chrissy's Court,' and $100,000 for a new cookbook she is currently writing.
As we reported, Chrissy's father Ronald Teigen filed for divorce after being married to her mother for over 30 years.
The documents claim the couple has been split since January 1, 2017, and Vilailuck has lived with Chrissy and John Legend for quite some time at their Beverly Hills mansion.
Chrissy's Parents Split After 34 Years...
Grandma Teigen is a regular fixture on Chrissy's social media, especially when it comes to cooking.
In 2018, Chrissy opened up about her mom and dad living separate lives, saying, "So my mom lives with us," the model said, "but everybody is like, 'Where’s your dad?'” Answering her own question, saying, "He comes by every day and they’re married. It just works for them. It’s a good family life. We’re all very close, very tight–knit."
Vilailuck's goes by the nickname "Pepper Thai," on social media because of her fondness for spicy dishes, which we are guessing will be featured in the upcoming cookbook.
Future Cooking Mogul?
Her mom said in one interview, "I love hot food, and my name is kind of long. Every time I eat, I have to have peppers or something spicy. Sometimes we even have a contest to see who can eat hotter, and I always win."
It appears everything is good with both of Chrissy's parents, who both support her career and are involved with the family.
Teigen just better be careful because Pepper may be coming for some of her jobs!
