One of President Donald Trump‘s closest and richest friends is paying more in child support per month than some people make annually, but don’t feel bad, he can definitely afford it.
According to documents obtained by The Blast, business mogul Tom Barrack has been ordered to pay his ex-wife Rachelle $83,000 per month in child support for their two children, Jaden and Alaia.
The number is based on the fact Rachelle was given primary custody of the children — Tom only gets 20% — and also his gigantic monthly gross disposable income of $2,448,426. Along with child support, Tom also pays for the kid’s private school tuition and all extracurricular activities.
The former couple were married in 2014, and Rachelle filed for divorce in 2016 citing irreconcilable differences.
They have a prenup in place which requires Barrack, who is estimated to be worth $1 billion, to pay $41,667 per month in spousal support until the end of the year.
Neverland Ranch — Michael Jackson‘s former residence that Barrack’s Colony Capital company purchased before the singer’s death, was not part of the settlement.
Barrack has been a longtime friend and supporter of Donald Trump, and became a major fundraiser during his presidential campaign. He also spoke at the 2016 Republican National Convention.
