Jon Cryer's Ex-Wife

Rich Kids are Humiliating Our Son

I Need $88K a Month

10/25/2013 6:37 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

1024-jon-cryer-sarah-trigger-gettyJon Cryer's ex wife claims their 13-year-old son is becoming the object of scorn and ridicule at his exclusive private school because the other kids have a caviar lifestyle and she's forced to live in the world of spam ... and that's why she's asking a judge to squeeze $88k a month from Jon in child support.

Get ready to throw something at the computer (or mobile device), 'cause this is gonna piss you off.

Sarah Trigger has been getting a measly $8,000 a month in child support since 2010. It galls her that Jon is making a fortune on "Two and a Half Men" -- she claims $2 mil a month!  

Sarah says life is awful.  She says her son Charlie can't afford the ritzy summer camps his friends attend.  She says Charlie's friends go on "exotic vacations in the summer and winter like Europe and Thailand."  He can't go. 

It gets worse. Sarah says Charlie's friends at The Buckley School have "huge birthday parties at expensive places like Sky High Sports and they invite the entire grade."  And worst of all ... the Bar Mitzvahs. Sarah says, "Last year there were multiple Bar Mitzvahs and Bat Mitzvahs all with custom invitations, a dress code and huge private receptions afterward."

Sarah says Charlie is feeling the pain, and so is she.  Sarah says when she got child support back in 2010, she only had custody 4% of the time ... and that's why she only got $8,000 a month.  Now she has custody 50% of the time, so she wants a cool $88,969 a month.  

The 69 is clearly for Jon.

$8,000/month seems like a fortune to regular folk like me, however, Jon does make $2,000,000/month, so it's not like it'd be a hardship on him to pay more. And logistically, the amount she is asking for makes sense. If you do the math, and she was getting $8,000/month for 4% of the time, that means she gets $2,000 for every 1% of time she has the child and so based on that, she'd be entitled to $50,000 if she had the kid 25% of the time, making her entitlement a cool $100,000/month for 50% of the time. So she's actually asking for less than she technically could. Take a few zeroes off of those numbers and apply them to a "normal" person's finances and it makes sense. People are getting hung up on the numbers, forgetting that support is based on salary, not people's expectations.

Sarah Trigger and her whining gives every respectable mother, female, ex-spouse etc. a bad name by using ridiculous reasons to obtain more $. I get tired of the bully-card always being used in a way to gain monetary means by changing custodial support. Trigger, grow up. If your son is really being bullied, complain to school officials and if they won't do anything maybe you (if you are a good parent) should re-consider what type of education you want for you child.

It's not my problem. Not everyone in the world cares. In my opinion that is. Don't mean to offend the people who read this. Sorry if I did.

I am sure he isn't complaining when he spends his 50% of time with dad and I am sure the kid gets everything he wants and if needed money for anything like an expensive trip he gets it from Dad! She doesn't have FULL custody. John is the talent and money maker. She is being greedy. That is WAY too much money

How much do you want to bet that he pays for the school, and the house that she lives in and all the other stuff, on top of the 8,000 a months, and how many people in the U.S. raise a kid on this much a year?
