NEWARK, N.J. (AP) — For an actor on “Sesame Street,” the letter P is for palimony.

A judge in New Jersey has ordered Roscoe Orman, who plays Gordon on the children’s TV show, to continue paying palimony to the mother of his four children even though the unmarried former couple never agreed to anything in writing.

The 71-year-old broke up with 61-year-old Sharon Joiner-Orman in 2010 after 39 years together and married another woman in 2012.

The judge found that Orman did not deny the agreement and acknowledged the obligation by deeds and words.

Joiner-Orman’s attorney, Charles Cohen, tells The Star-Ledger of Newark the couple was “in all respects husband and wife.”

Orman’s lawyer, Thomas McDonough, plans to appeal because a 2010 law requires palimony agreements to be in writing under advice of attorneys.
