Michael Strahan: $18,000 a month
In 2007, former New York Giants defensive end Michael Strahan was ordered to pay $18,000 a month to ex-wife Jean Strahan, for the care of their twin daughters. However, the payments were later lowered to an undisclosed amount.
The judge reportedly said it was unfair that Strahan was required to pay 91 percent of child support since his ex-wife was well-educated and employable.
Strahan was previously ordered to pay $2,500 monthly in child support for daughter Tanita,and son Michael Jr., who he fathered with his first wife Wanda Hutchins in 1992 and 1995 respectively. He divorced Hutchins in 1996.
50 Cent: $6,700 a month
Rapper and actor 50 Cent pays $6,700 a month to ex-girlfriend Shaniqua Tompkins for the care of their son Marquise.
According to the New York Post, in 2008 Tomkins wanted 50 Cent’s support payments increased from $15000 to $50,000 a month to cover living expenses for Marquise.
The multiplatinum selling rapper objected to the increase and took legal action. While the case was under review, he was ordered to pay her $25,000 per month.
However, after reviewing Tompkins’ child-related expenses, the court determined that she needed $8,000 less than what she had been receiving.
