Marc Anthony's Ex

JLo Gets Child Support

I Got a Crappy Valley Apt!

11/26/2013 8:00 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF


Marc Anthony's ex-wife claims the singer has turned a cold shoulder on her children ... forcing them to sell their home and move into a hovel in the Valley ... while he lives like a king -- and to add insult to injury, he pays the very rich Jennifer Lopez a ton of child support ... this according to court documents obtained by TMZ.

Dayanara Torres -- the 1993 Miss Universe -- wants a huge increase in child support -- from $13K per month for their 2 sons, to $113K a month.  It's an enormous increase, but she says it's a drop in the bucket for Marc -- who this year boasted he makes $1.25 mil a month -- MINIMUM.

It's especially infuriating for Dayanara, who claims Marc played the poverty card during their divorce, claiming he had such money trouble he had to sell his private island and let some of his staff go.  Now get this ... the week the divorce became final, she says he bought JLo a $4 MILLION RING!

Dayanara says Marc goes weeks and even months without seeing their boys, one of whom has special needs.  She mentions one instance where he told the boys he couldn't visit because of work, but then they saw him on TV cavorting on a beach with JLo.  They were devastated.

Dayanara gives Marc backhanded credit for giving the kids lavish gifts.  For example, last XMAS he sent them 4 huge boxes of toys, including an extravagant Lego set.  But she says their apartment is so small they have no space to play with them.

She also grouses that Marc actually PAYS JLO child support, and a lot of it -- way more than she gets.

You're not J.Lo, tramp! Get a job and stop begging for money, have some dignity

She gets $13k a month and can't afford to buy a house? Where does she live, Mars? Anyone who can't buy a decent house when they get that kind of support is pathetic.

So Hollywood marriage is all about what you get in the divorce? And if you can't afford a house, rent an apartment. Signed: the average US citizen.

When I divorced my husband I was really nice to him. Didn't try to take him to the cleaners or rake him over the coals. Never sued him for child support even though he's a tech valley gazillionaire. Yeah, we had disagreements, some of them huge, but we worked through them quietly. It seems to me that Dayanara doesn't work and she keeps comparing herself to JLo who, even though I'm not a fan of hers, seems to work her booty off. Did it ever occur to her that maybe JLo and Marc Anthony had a deal where JLo would buy her own ring and Marc would make it up to her later on? Dayanara seems to come across a gold-digger. On the other hand, I cannot stand Marc Anthony and think he's probably a crappy dad so her kids aren't missing anything. Good luck to all.

And how would he be making 1.25 mil a month these days? He has not done anything in years.

I'd say she's correct. I think any judge is going to look at the huge disparity between his other kids and ex and increase her support. Especially if one is a special needs child. Good for her!

Marc Anthony isn't a nice looking man but that picture showing his nicotine stained teeth is disgusting.

JLo broke up this woman's marriage out of desperation after Afflleck fled the scene. He couldn't stand JLo's motor mouth and control issues. Antony used her to boost his career but wasn't in love with her either. Now she's with a 24 yr old nobody who will also walk after he gets enough stashed away.

I think if he's dumb enough to brag publicly about making 1.25 mil a month minimum she has a right to ask the court for more.

When Marc divorced Dayanara he made her sign a legal do***ent where she could not speak in public any ill feeling toward him and JLo. He made her life a living hell and she is no gold digger. She works as a model and she also does other stuff. When she was married to Marc she could not venture out on her modeling career because he would not let her. Dayanara is a well respected woman in Puerto Rico and very loved. I grew up with a divorced mom and I know how it feels to see your other brothers living the life of luxury and come back home to nothing. I used to ask my mom, why? She would say to avoid trouble with my father. Dayanara deserves better and especially her children.
