The 50-year-old was held in contempt of court for allegedly failing to pay thousands of dollars to his ex in child support for their son, Jack, who is now 18-years-old.

The star's ex claimed in a court order, “He just stopped paying,” adding, “He is working and lives in a $2 million dollar rental.”

And the pair did just that, coming to an agreement that McDermott would pay his half by Monday.

Let's just hope he sticks to his word for the sake of baby Beau!
