Phoenix Divorce Lawyer Talks About Celebrity Child Support Payments

Posted on May 18, 2012

Figuring out child support and spousal support is often the most trying part of divorce proceedings, and that difficulty is often magnified when it comes to high-profile celebrities and their children. A recent child support battle involving the child of Linda Evangelista and Francois-Henri Pinault has put the spotlight on the sometimes extreme child support and alimony payments in high-profile divorces. Although no details about the settlement between Pinault and Evangelista have been released, Evangelista stated that she was spending $46,000 each month on their son. That amount included expenses for a nanny and bodyguards. 

How much do other celebrities end up paying? Here are some other high-profile child support and spousal support orders:

  • Sean “Diddy” Combs pays $19,000 per month in child support to Misa Hylton-Brim.
  • Britney Spears was ordered to pay $20,000 each month in child support to Kevin Federline.
  • Rapper Nas was ordered to pay $51,000 each month to ex-wife Kelis for care of their son.
  • Martin Brodeur, goalie with the New Jersey Devils, was ordered to pay $500,000 in alimony and $132,000 in child support annually to his ex-wife, which works out to about $53,000 per month.
  • Charlie Sheen was ordered to pay $55,000 in child support in his divorce settlement with Brooke Mueller for their twins.
