Marc Anthony’s ex-wife Dayanara Torres wants to up her child support for their two sons together from $13,000 to $113,000 per month!
The 45-year-old singer is fighting the claim, feeling Dayanara brought it on herself with her choices.
Anthony claims that his former wife was forced to sell her home at a huge loss because she’d been sleeping with a married man.
The wife of the man she was hooking up with got on a bullhorn in front of Torres’ home yelling “whore” and refused to stop. The whole neighborhood was able to hear the scorned woman and Dayanara sold the home at a loss to get out of there.
Dayanara tells a rather different story, stating she was so strapped for cash that she had to sell her home. She is now living with her two sons in a small apartment in the San Fernando Valley.
Marc is also fighting the increased child support because he thinks it will be bad for the children. The singer hired a psychologist who wrote a declaration to the judge about the problems of children raised by parents in the Los Angeles entertainment industry with unlimited funds.
The expert stated they “become high-risk for illicit drugs, alcohol and a fast-paced lifestyle that they are not emotionally capable of handling” when they hit their teens.
Dayanara says her sons Cristian, 13, and Ryan, 10, live in relative poverty with her compared to the luxurious lifestyle they have with their dad.
The former Miss Universe is wanting a full staff complete with a cook and nanny, as well as access to private jets to take trips around the world and to stay in 5-star hotels.
Marc Anthony says in the documents that the boys “already have everything they need and the increase would spoil them rotten.”
Marc and Dayanara married on May 9, 2000 in Las Vegas and separated in early 2002. They later reconciled and renewed their vows on December 7, 2002 at San Juan’s Cathedral in Puerto Rico. The rocky marriage finally ended in January 2004 when Dayanara filed for divorce.
Marc has been married three times previously. His most recent marriage and divorce was with singer Jennifer Lopez with whom he has six-year-old twins Emme and Maximillian. They announced their separation in 2011 and Marc filed for divorce in April 2012 but the terms are still being negotiated.
