'CSI' Creator's Wife

What, ... Me Live

On $443,000 a Month?!?

The wife of the creator of "CSI" is in terrible financial straits ... forced to live on a meager $443,528 a month, and is demanding spousal and child support.

Anthony Zuiker has filed new legal docs -- obtained by TMZ -- in response to Jennifer's demand for support, in which he scoffs at her claims, noting that she told the court she ONLY needs $158,000 a month to live, and her monthly cut from the show exceeds that amount by a whopping $285,000.

And get this ... the couple raked in more than $74 million in "CSI" profits since 2008. Their average yearly income is more than $17.8 mil.

One final thing. In the legal docs, Anthony is objecting to the renewal of their youngest son's passport, on grounds it's dangerous for him to travel with Jennifer. According to the docs, Jennifer exhibited "shockingly poor judgment" during her travels with their 3 kids, allegedly leaving them alone with the nanny for days while traveling in Europe.

But the best "poor judgment" allegation ... Anthony claims Jennifer encouraged and allowed the 11-year-old boy to shoot a "real hand gun" at televisions she and her friends had dragged into the Nevada desert.

Rich people's problems.

You just don't get it, people... The price of jelly donuts has SKYROCKETED in the last few years. Poor girl can barely make it through to her next meal. That being said, she could save a lot of $$ each month if she would just see a good diet doc.

It's this type of "woman" that kills it for the rest of the women! No one needs that much a month to live on, unless she eats like a pig! She just got lucky marrying the poor fool, now he's gonna suck hind teet!!!

....When it comes to matters of divorce some men choose to hire professional high-powered attorneys, and yet other men choose to hire professionals with high-powered rifles.


The second choice has been proven much, much, cheaper--- and much, much, more cathartic...Artofwar

So disgusting how people who make so much can b!^@# and complain when there's some families out there who learn to get by on under 30,000 a year. I wish the rich could get laid off and go on unemployment. MANAGE THAT !!!!!!
