    Billionaire Ken Griffin's ex-wife wants $1 million dollars a month for child support.

    This is the monthly budget she's requesting…if this isn't the epitome of gold-digging I don't know what is.

    $160,000 PER MONTH for vacation accommodations? *quickly types digits into calculator and squints eyes*...icon_eek.gifthat's $1,926,000 on vacations for one year!

    What do you all think? Is this reasonable or is she straight gold-digging?

    I personally don't feel sorry for especially after she signed a prenup for $25 million dollars. I want to know where that money went. What was she doing? Wiping her ass with Benjamins?

    Every woman knows that she's entitled to at least half of her husband's money when they divorce.

    The prenup is irrelevant, as that concerns ALIMONY which is entirely different than CHILD SUPPORT.

    Under most jurisdictions, the child is SUPPOSED to be reasonably kept in the SAME manner he or she'd been afforded and had grown accustomed. Translation, if a kid was jet setting before their parents split, then they should keep jet setting after.

    These demands are utterly reasonable. I doubt they'll be granted to this extent, but the law is clear that a parent cannot contract away the child support right(s) of her child(ren).

    You might not like the outcome of the law in this particular case, but the law applies with equal force to the pauper and the rich alike. Rich people don't "get a break" simply because they make/have a LOT of money.

    What you're asking for is an exemption for the wealthy. I don't support that notion a single inch. To heck with the jerk, he can pay up to keep his kids LIKE ALL MEN/WOMEN DO. No special perks for the rich. Equality of the law for all.

    hairyandym saidWTF...$2G a month for stationary [sic].

    Yeah, that caught my eye, too, if it's true. Why do kids, or anybody outside of the White House, need $2000 a month for stationery? Don't kids do most things online?

    Perhaps the child writes on sheepskin. My alma mater, Notre Dame, until recently--a few years ago--printed all its diplomas on sheepskin. Mine is sheepskin.

    What if little Jonny and Samantha need to practice their cursive and paintings on sheepskin? Did you ever think of that? (sarcasm)

    2000 for stationary per month? The court will cut that like:
