'CSI' Creator's Wife

My Hubby Makes a FORTUNE

And I Get NOTHING

2/7/2012 2:00 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

The guy who created the "CSI" shows is raking in $25k per episode for EACH of the three series on the air ... this according to his estranged wife who claims she can't figure out why he deserves to keep getting paid ... and even worse, she says she's been totally cut off.

Jennifer Zuiker just filed new legal docs in her divorce from Anthony Zuiker ... in which she claims Anthony hasn't given her a dime in child and spousal support since she called off the marriage last April.

According to the docs, filed in L.A. County Superior Court, Jennifer is demanding $1,000,000 to pay her lawyers and accountants while they work out a  long term financial arrangement. Plus she wants a judge to sign off on an order that would force Anthony to shell out $54,282 in monthly support. After all, Jennifer claims she spends $158,827 in monthly expenses including:

-- personal living expenses ............$91,882
-- children's personal expenses ... $5,236
-- costs related to houses .............. $61,710

In an effort to convince the judge that Anthony can afford it ... Jennifer spells out his yearly income -- an estimated $1.6 MILLION ... and that's JUST from the "CSI" franchise.

Jennifer notes in the docs, "It has not been determined what, if anything, [Anthony] is doing to earn those funds."

Jennifer claims Anthony is also banking a bunch of cash from a new show he's developing for ABC called "Chameleon" ... plus, she believes he's also getting paid for various speaking engagements.

However, in the docs, Jennifer admits the kids spend 40% of the time with Anthony ... and sources connected to the couple say its actually more than that.

A hearing is set for March. Stay tuned ...

What is spousal support. That sounds like something between a married couple. Divorced people are no longer spouses.

Here's an idea downsize! You don't need to be spending over 150,000 on your house or your personal expenses (WTF). And really she doesn't know why he gets paid... maybe because he created the shows god damn moron.

No sympathy at $158K per month for sitting around and taking your ex's free money. Seriously.

So she is claiming that she alone spends 1.9 million a year, and he makes 1.6 million a year. If her numbers are accurate I'd divorce her on those grounds alone!

Hey Sqiggy...If you know so much why don't you write a f**king book?

You could call it "I heard some sh*t once but I'm no good at f**king details"...

Oh great; another entitled arrogant self centered hollywood bitch who doesn't earn a penny & doesn't know the value of a dollar. Sorry honey; you don't need $150k/month for living expenses. You get 1 house, a decent allowance for 5 years and that's it. Deal with it, you retard...

If she is spending $158,827 in monthly expenses and he is not giving her a dime, how and where do she get the money from?

The 91,000 a month is probably for more cosmetic surgery. Look up archived pictures of this self-entitled witch. She looks like a totally different person, and honestly, the work she's had done hasn't helped all that much. Her hubby uses his creative genius to make a fortune, she just wants to dump him now and enjoy the fruits of his labor. Disgusting.

Erm... didn't he create the shows and characters? Isn't that what 'creator' implies? So it was his idea, and his idea is making a lot of people a lot of money. So I'd say THAT is what he is doing, or has done, to deserve those funds. What she has done I don't know...
