According to new court documents, Shumpert was displeased with his child support arrangements and wants his estranged wife to chip in since she has the bigger wallet. He broke down the estranged couple's finances, revealing a significant gap in their income.

According to Shumpert's revelation, Taylor made $93,885 monthly before tax deductions while he brought in $47,981. Per his calculations, his estranged wife made nearly double his income and could shoulder more responsibilities.

The former athlete's decision to reveal this alleged pay gap brought back memories of Taylor's previous accusations. When she filed for divorce in 2023, the "Wake Up Love" singer claimed Shumpert was insecure and jealous of her fame.

Shumpert, who shares two children with Taylor, noted that he was happy to spend $8,000 monthly in child support. His willingness extended to their "major" medical bills; however, he requested to split the cost of other health services with his estranged wife.

The famous pair have been at odds over money amid their divorce, with Taylor accusing Shumpert of leaving her to foot the bill for the home renovations he started three years ago.

These upgrades reportedly cost about $200K, but that was not the only crime she slammed him with.

In the famous couple's case, Shumpert allegedly violated the automatic domestic standing orders by diminishing their marital estate by over $3.7 million.

Taylor claimed he took loans from their accounts without her knowledge and got away with the crime until on or about March 7, 2024.

At the time, Shumpert submitted current statements for certain investment accounts, and Taylor's team noticed a sharp decrease in some of the values compared to the figures he shared in October 2023.

To solve the mystery, Taylor's counsel hired Mike Bean, a certified divorce financial analyst. During his investigations, he allegedly discovered Shumpert had taken several loans throughout 2023 from multiple marital bank accounts.

According to Mr. Bean, Shumpert withdrew a whopping $3,797,944; unfortunately for the ex-athlete, that wasn't the only sum Taylor wanted him to pay back.
