Marc Anthony

Rails on the Stand

It'd Be 'Tragic' To Pay Her More Child Support

Marc Anthony
should change his name to Shakespeare after the drama that just unfolded on the stand in his bitter child support case -- he said it would be "tragic" to pay his ex-wife more child support than he's already giving her.

Marc took the stand Friday, claiming the increase in child support Torres is seeking -- from $13,000 a month to $113,000 -- would be detrimental to his and Torres' children because it's simply excessive.

Anthony insisted he already pays all the costs in relation to his children's needs.

Additionally, Anthony said Torres has historically mismanaged her finances and it would be "tragic" to have that much money at her disposal.

I'm with Marc. These kids have everything any rich kids have including private schools, etc. maybe it doesn't include private jets off to St. Bart's, but boo hoo. Giving that frivolous ex a million a year is not the answer. You know she'll squander it on sables and luxury items for herself. It isn't supposed to be spousal support, it's child support. Eff her. Give her a few thousand more/month and tell her to make do.

She's only asking for that much so the judge will land somewhere in the middle. I bet its tragic what you're giving JLo without even blinking an eye.

He is an arrogant little controlling slimeball. I will never understand why he is so popular. Dayanara should have the money to live the lifestyle the kids get with him.... He is refusing for control. Period.

I think he's a pos and anyone trying to deny their child even one dollar should rot in hell. That's the lowest of the low.

If he pays her that much money a month he will go broke for sure.

The greatest thing a man can do for his children is to love their mother. When you fail to do that, you get what you deserve because , no doubt, you're a mofoe. smokersodysseycom

Shut up and pay the bitch, you little worm. You were a terrible husband and i would wager you are far from a great dad and "hands on father"!

she is no different that the vast majority of the women out there - I would say over 90% of the women would do the same specially when advised by their lawyers to do so.

I don't even get 13K a year from my ex - and he's 50K behind in support. No child needs that amount of money to survive and be well cared for. My kids have everything they need on my measly salary.

What marc needs to do is keep paying the 13,000 a month and the other 100,000 put in a trust fund for her not to waste the $$. She needs to get a life adn be happy hes paying unlike other men that don't pay at all!!!

Marc should buy an upscale property for her and HIS children to live in until the youngest child is 20. The court should appoint a financial manager to handle the funds Marc is required to pay.
