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.

In case you all who are telling her to get a JOB can't read, they happen to have a special needs child. Do you have any idea how much medical bills can cost for this??? I feel for her. She is the Mother of not one, but TWO of his children. She should be living just a nice as he is because she is taking care of his children. Take care of your responsibilities Marc!

This is for those of you that are saying she needs a JOB, she didn't make these children alone. She his child with special needs and in case you didn't know this, children with special needs have very high medical and living expenses, not to mention she deserves to live like he is. Lastly she is the Mother of not one, but two of his children, and I feel she should be treated equally, if not more so than JLO. PERIOD...disgusts me that he is not in his childrens lives..

Why the **** it everyone bashing her she has the right to get more money. Marc is paying way more money to J-LO. Jennifer has more money than Marc and yet he is paying more money to her than Dayanara. She had a career in the hispanic world and yet gave all of that put cause Marc wanted her to raise the kids. So not saying she is a gold digger if J-Lo can get thousands of dollars than so should Dayanara

I like the guy as an entertainer, but she has a point. They were married and he gave up on his family to go with Lopez.....then left his family to get together with Lopez. He then claimed he was poor, gave them 13K and jumped into a new marriage 15 minutes later while spending extravagantly on a woman who already had millions.......clearly she got played and tossed to the curb with their two kids....not cool. It is a shiatload of money, but the kids are to share in the resources of their parents...whatever that may be. She is also entitled to go back to court every year if need be to adjust the financial support....that is perfectly legal in California....its shameful that he doesn't feel that it is fair to share all that with his kids, regardless of the relationship with their mother...
Having been through an ugly divorce, I understand this from both sides.....she got played for a fool, the least she could now and all she can do anymore is get paid.

Actually the first children to file for money are the ones who get the most. Divorce is all about WHERE it was filed.
Like in Texas...they cap child support and there is rarely alimony it's never for life no matter how long you were married. Ca it's a formula for child support so it can be huge.
She will get a raise

Some suggestions for Dayanara: Forget California ( + acting) if you haven't made it by now; at least take a break. Relocate with your kids; there's nothing keeping you here. Your dollar should go much farther and you might like to settle in a nice community with down-to-earth people. They often have community theaters in the area to try out for. And while your kids are still in
school , - perhaps you'll find another field to pursue,
maybe in sales, or a technical job, or maybe in teaching. Go back to school yourself, and role model success as a mother for your sons. There's no reason i can see why you should be hanging onto alimony . If you let it go, suggest that you divide it and give it to your children.
And don't live in the past..

I can understand that she would want an increase in child support. Having dealt with child support issues myself, I know that the courts usually look at BOTH incomes to determine what child support should be. So my next question is: what does she do for a living? Is she working? Does she have an income? Child support is meant to take care of the children's needs, not to have the ex-wife living on a grander scale. If her children are living in a clean, comfortable and safe home, then what is the issue? She should have dealt with this when she was divorcing and included clauses that would determine that if his income went up, her support and cost of living would go up, too. To go to court because his #2 ex-wife is getting more than her sounds ridiculous. It's all about the kids, people!! Not about the exes.

What in the hell is this woman talking about?! She lives on Chandler Blvd. in Sherman Oaks, California; an area of Los Angeles which is anything but a "hovel." She only has TWO children to raise and a whooping THIRTEEN THOUSAND DOLLARS A MONTH child support, yet claims she has to live in an apartment so tiny that her children don't have room to play in?! PURE BULL****!!

this is the part that kills me about the woman. Marc has an older daughter not by her and i have never heard a thing from his other ex. this woman is just obsessed with Jlo and cant get over the fact that she is a nobody and Marc never got over Jlo and ran to her when Ben left her

Poor woman I feel sad for her. I hope that Marc understand that live is everyday more spencer... for just 13,000 dollars per month. I believe that 113,000 it's more reasonable. He cann afford it with 1.2 m per month....he'll yeah !! Poor woman with two kids living in a small apartment in the valley. Not fair !
