Billionaire Divorce

$100K a Month in Child Support

10/22/2010 2:53 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Ex-MGM owner Kirk Kerkorian is used to writing big checks, so it may only come with a wince that he has to pay $100,000 a month in child support -- for one kid!

Kerkorian -- who had one of the nastiest and richest divorces ever from ex-wife Lisa Kerkorian -- has been fighting Lisa's bid to drastically increase support for their 12-year-old daughter.

So who woulda thunk?  Kirk and Lisa settled ... and TMZ has obtained a copy of the agreement, in which Kirk agreed to double the current monthly support, which had previously been set at $50,000.

Child support king Michael Trope managed to squeeze out an additional $10,250,000 in retroactive child support for his client, dating back to 2002.

As part of the deal, Lisa agreed to drop a civil suit she filed against Kirk -- which could have been worth tens of millions of dollars.

And here's the most incredible part -- Kirk may not even be the biological daddy.

PERHAPS MR. KERKORIAN LOVES HIS "DAUGHTER" TOO MUCH TO GO THRU A DNA TEST. SHAME ON THAT JUDGE WHO SIDED WITH THAT MONEY GRUBBING WOMAN WHO USED HER CHILD AS A TOOL FOR HER SELFISH SCHEMES. MR. KERKORIAN MUST BE AN ABSOLUTE PRINCE TO TOLERATE SUCH ABUSE. SORRY FOR HIM.

Please    

She's a smart trick! Rumor has it that the kid is actually Steve Bing's kid. He's the billionaire who's the father of Elizabeth Hurley's kid. This bitch was no fool. If it's not one billionaire's kid, it's the others.

You all obviously did not understand everything because he agreed to that amount to keep her from going after him civilly. Had she gone that route, she would have probably received millions more. Think, people. No matter how much money someone has, the payor is always going to go for the lowest amount. She is not being greedy. I'm sure he provided a life that both she and the child were accustomed to. You don't see anything about spousal support. Why are yall hating on the mom?

Dear Friends,

I will clarify those numbers for you. Let's break down the full figure of $100,000.

School: A top private boarding school is around $60...K per year all-inclusive. Month: $5K

Automobile: Cadillac Escalade fully equipped ($90K ...financing about $2,000 + $1,000 insurance + $4,000 high-end chauffeur). Month $5K

Food: Food at the house, Food at the Country Club inviting all friends...let's say for home about $1,000 + $1,000 for restaurants a month.
Month: $2K

Beauty treatments: Hair done 3 times a week at $250 a pop...roughly about $4,000
Month: 4K

We are at $16,000 a month.

Let's continue...

Tutoring: Math tutor ($1,000) Nutrionist ($1,000) Pilates instructor ($1,000) Private trainer ($1,000) Psychologist ($1,000) Life couch ($1,000). I am assuming $125 per hour...twice a week..for 4 weeks.

Renting a limo around town...$1,500 x 4 weeks...$

We have now $36.5K

Let's continue...

Equestrian expense...

Monthly fee to belong to Country Club about $1,000 at least.
Equestrian expense...for room, food, board, medical...I'd say about $2,000 in total.

Clothing:

At this age, kids typically have many events. So let's say 1 new dress a week of $500. Two pair of new shoes per month at $300. Overall let's say about $1,000 month in clothing in general.

We have $3,60...0

Travel:

A Kirkorian kid needs to travel first class and she will invite her mother..She'd fly once a month. $3,000 per ticket x2: $6,000 for flights....3 nights a month at $300 a night...about $7,000 in total...FOOD + SHOPPING: $1,000 in food...$2,000 in shopping for friends...uncles..aunts...teachers..etc...

But twice a year she'd go to Colorado for skiing..rent an apartment there for $700 per night for 10 daysx2: $14,000


Total $24K


We have a total of $67K for now.


Housing...this girl must live in a 4,000 square feet apartment...where she would pay in rent about $10,000....$3K for full-time caretaker.....$2K for cook...we have $15K.

We now have about $82K

Hobbies: 3 hobbies: playing musical instrument...piano, painting and drama.

Piano teacher....3 times a week @$100 per hour....$1,200p/moth
Painting and drama likewise.

TOTAL $3,500

I'd imagine that the mother would need $15,000....

$2,000 PSYCHOLOGIST
$2,000 GYM/STARBUCKS/SMOOTHIES jajaja
$5,000 CLOTHING (1 dress of Carolina Herrera is about $4,000)
