Marc Anthony's Ex

JLo Gets Child Support

I Got a Crappy Valley Apt!

EXCLUSIVE

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.

She gets $13,000 a month and she's complaining? There are some people who don't get that in a year.

Girl, if you're getting 13K a month and your apartment is too small for your kids to play with Legos and toys that M.A. bought for them I think I'd call for an accounting of exactly where all that money goes. Have you considered employment?

13k a month and people are suppose to feel sorry for you? Here's some good advice, MOVE OUT OF CALIFORNIA. Buy a mansion somewhere else for that kind of money. My bad, you have to have brains for a decision like like instead of a gold digging whore

She mentioned special needs, so I wonder how special they are if she can't seem to get through the month with 13K. Maybe the area she lives in is that much more expensive? Her child has a lot of special needs?

Regardless of the money, it is sad for those children to have to deal with such a father if what she said is true.
My heart goes out for the children for having to deal with all of this.

This is life, lady, suck it up! You thought this guy and having his pups were your ticket to financial freedom. Don't like it, get a job.
