Mena Suvari

Broke Ex Wants

Spousal Support

Mena Suvari's soon-to-be ex-husband is an admitted business failure ... so he wants Mena to fork over a whopping $17,000/month in spousal support as part of their divorce ... TMZ has learned. 

According to court docs filed earlier this week, Simone Sestito claims he has "negative balances" on all his personal and business accounts and has been forced to pay his bills with credit cards and loans from his parents. 

Sestito claims Mena makes $750,000/year, which includes a terrible Captain Morgan ad campaign she did that netted her $225,000.



Sestito claims he got used to eating out "almost everyday at high end restaurants" and lists his estimated monthly eating out expense as a whopping $3,000/month. A Happy Meal every once in a while wouldn't hurt!

Sestito is looking for $17,151/month in spousal support, plus an additional $10k for attorney fees. 

A judge has yet to rule. 

Mena's lawyer, Mark Gross, tells TMZ ... "It is unfortunate that Simone has chosen the spotlight of litigation over the privacy of mediation."

Sounds just like Gabriel Aubrey. Wants Halle to support him and pay his lawyers. What a loser. Get a damn job and support yourself jerks.

When a woman feels she "deserves" to sponge off her ex-husband, that's bad enough. But there's something about an able bodied and entitlement thinking man mooching off his ex-wife that simply defies that which is pathetic.

Fairs, Fair…if the tables were turned there would be no questions asked. When its the men who are on the receiving end then all of a sudden it suddenly becomes an issue.

i certainly think that when committed relationships fail, the one that didn't mess it up should get something. people need to learn to make certain sacrifices, though. i make most of my food in my kitchen and if i go out, my meal doesn't cost more than about $30 at the most. if you want to eat 100s in food in one meal, then you need to go earn that. he should be worried about where he's going to live, what he's going to drive, and bills more than eating insanely priced food in VIP restaurants.

He should ask himself where he got the money to start all these failed business ventures. Then he should ask himself who supported him while these business were struggling.

Seems to me he has already been given enough, and has not put anything back into the marriage except his debt, which no doubt she took care of.

Get a friggin job working for someone. Obviously you can't work for yourself.

Write him a "get on with your life" check of $50,000 and get on with your life, Mena. He's a dirt bag for wanting $17,000 a month from you. He needs to man up and go get his own career and money.

I love all the man hating comments... When a woman divorces her husband and asks for spousal support, it's no big deal. Well welcome to equal rights ladies. BWAHAHAHAHAHAAHA p.s. this guy does look like a rather large douche, but that's beside the point! ;)
