Val Kilmer's Ex-Wife:

HE'S A DEADBEAT DAD

Val Kilmer
's ex-wife claims the actor has stiffed her on child support payments  ... according to documents obtained by TMZ ... and now she's going after his property in order to get what she claims is rightfully owed.

Actress Joanne Whalley had two children with Val before their marriage ended in 1996 -- one of the children is now 19-years old and the other is 16. At the time of the split, Val agreed to shell out $27,500 per month in child support.

But according to court documents filed in New Mexico, Whalley claims Val has fallen behind in payment. Whalley doesn't specify how much Val owes ... but she has established a lien on Val's property to force the actor to pay up.

It ain't the first time Whalley claims Val left her hangin' -- court documents show Joanne got a lien on Val's stuff in 2007 after he allegedly stiffed her on child support payments back then.

Val eventually rectified that situation -- and the lien was removed in 2008.

We placed several calls to Val's rep for comment -- so far, no response.

I think she looks great, she's keeping it like nature intended and she looks beautiful, but HIM... talk about a good looking younger man turning into an ugly fat old man.! And he's obviously a deadbeat too. Stupid man, you're missing out on a family

Something not right here Val kids live with him and he pays for their upbringing. In fact they go to school in the USA not England. Sounds like Val’s ex is trying to be like Oksana. Val is no Dead beat Dad if the kids live with him and his money goes straight to his kids

The 18 year old can still finish out the 18th year, but the 16 year old has two years to go for child support!

At least that's the way we do things here in Texas!

I want to chime in on this one. I'd hardly call someone who can't come up with 27000 a month in child support a deadbeat. Maybe he's the victim of backwards perception? Let me explain. Having custody of a child should never be a monetary incentive. If you 'want' the child to be with you, you should be willing to pay for the child. Maybe he's having a hard time coming up with the child support because it's a F*CK load of money. Maybe the mom is in fact a gold digger. So what's a gold digger if not a lady like this? It's unreasonable for a judge to think that kind of irrational level of pay is sustainable. Val's not a captain of industry but rather an actor, meaning very inconsistent and unstable with his salary. This kind of insanity makes me want to let out a primal sigh.

What if Val can't afford 27k a month anymore? It's not like he's a big time actor anymore or anything. And come on Child support is ridiculous. No child needs 27,000 a month to live on. I'm sure the mother isn't working or trying to look for a job, how fair is it that just because a guy makes money he has to support the kids and the woman. He should only pay for what it costs to care for a child not a child with a lavish lifestyle. Kids make more than me in 2 months than I take home in a year. This **** is ridiculous!

what on earth does someone need $27,000 a month in child support for? That's 2 years pay for me at my job. What do those kids need that costs that much. I get that Val was once a rich actor but that seems like an extreme amount of money.

There's a problem here    

Deadbeat parents, male or female, should not only have everything they own seized for restitution but they should have to spend time in a cage.

On the other hand, there is a certain look about hard core alcoholics and his ex has that look.
