Astoundingchild support payments of the stars

Brad Pitt

Money has been an issue for Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt. Both went to court because Jolie said Pitt wasn't paying sufficient child support, but he said he has already paid over US$1 million.

Tom Cruise

Despite having nearly US$250 million to his name, Cruise pays just $33,000 per month in child support to his daughter, Suri, the custody of whom he shares with Katie Holmes. This payment will last until 2024, when Suri turns 18.

Eddie Murphy

When a DNA test revealed that Murphy was, in fact, the father of former Spice Girl Mel B's daughter, he was ordered to pay US$51,000 per month for the child.

Donald Trump

The ex-president of the United States reportedly had to pay Ivana Trump US$300,000 in child support each year, as well as $25,000 per month to Marla Maples for their daughter, Tiffany (until she turned 21).

Brendan Fraser

The actor was ordered to pay US$75,000 per month in child support for his three kids with ex-wife Afton Smith. In 2013, he tried to have the amount reduced, arguing that he didn't have the same economic power as when he was a star.

Britney Spears

When she got divorced from Kevin Federline, the singer was forced to pay US$20,000 per month for her sons, Sean and Jayden.

Mel Gibson

The actor was ordered to pay US$20,000 per month for his daughter with ex Oksana Grigorieva, which he later increased to about $30,000 with the stipulation that she move out.

After separating from Gabriel Aubry, the actress was ordered to pay US$16,000 per month to support their daughter, Nahla.
