Jon Cryer’s former wife claims their 13-year-old son is the object of ridicule at his exclusive private school because the other kids have a more lavish lifestyle.
As a result, she’d like the actor to cough up another $88,000. A month.
Sarah Trigger has been getting $8,000 a month in support since 2010, while Jon’s the second highest-paid actor on TV thanks to Two and a Half Men.
That fact is almost more upsetting than what Sarah claims about life.
According to Jon’s ex, teenager Charlie can’t afford ritzy summer camps, exotic vacations, huge birthday parties with the “entire grade” invited … nothing.
“Last year there were multiple Bar Mitzvahs and Bat Mitzvahs all with custom invitations, a dress code and huge private receptions afterward,” Trigger says.
Sarah says Charlie is feeling the pain of exclusion, and so is she.
As for how she arrived at that sum, Sarah says when she got child support back in 2010, she only had custody 4 percent of the time … 1-2 days a month.
That’s why she only got $8,000. Now that she has custody 50 percent of the time, she wants a raise to $88,969, which sounds like a silly high total.
It’s just over $1 million annually, and Jon makes 10-20 times that, so not a huge deal in terms of pure financials for an actor who has a vast fortune.
Sarah’s reasoning, however, is enough to make your head explode.
