Starsky Ordered to Pay Daughter's Tuition

Starsky has just been ordered to pay half of his daughter's private school tuition -- after his wife accused him of favoring golf over the girl's education.

TMZ broke the story ... Paul Michael Glaser's ex-wife Tracy Glaser claimed the iconic "Starsky and Hutch" actor of refused to pay 1/2 of his 16-year-old daughter's tuition ... a share that amounted to about $11,000 a year.

Tracy claimed Paul blew even more than that on golf alone ... in six months.

Paul has argued the court excused him from having to pay -- but clearly that isn't the case because according to Tracy's lawyer, Joe Mannis, the judge just ordered him to cough up the dough ... plus $3,500 in attorney's fees.
