'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.

I once had to live in welfare and I only got 550$ a month and that had to pay rent and food and I survived.

This woman deserves to be shot if a half million a month aint good enough for her.

she should get NOTHING cause thats what she deserves.

somebody should bring her out in the desert and pretend she is a TV set and shoot her dead.

I live in the Nevada desert!! Who cleaned up the mess you and your son did while shooting TV's!!! This is my home, why don't you shoot something in your own backyard and let someone else clean it up. It is people like you that make our world your own personal dump. Get a life and start taking responsibilty for your own junk!!!!

I never did like CSI. Maybe the next episode will be about a wealthy couple going through a divorce and the wife suddenly disappears...
