Alex Rodriguez Is Trying To Get His Child Support Payments Way Down
Alex Rodriguez is trying to chop his child support payments to his ex-wife down drastically, saying that he makes way less money now that he’s out of his Yankees pinstripes. Another reason, according to a new report, she’s got plenty of cash in the bank already.
The former third baseman has been working to duke it out with Cynthia Scurtis for months over his $115,000-a-month tax-free child and spousal support payments, according to reports from TMZ on Tuesday.
The couple have two daughters together — Natasha, 13, and Ella, 10 — and got a divorce back in 2008.
Sources told the site that their support agreement was always supposed to be revised once A-Rod retired from his team in 2016, so this shouldn’t be a surprise for Rodriguez’s ex-wife.
A-Rod claims that he now earns 90 percent less income — going from $30 million a year when he was still playing ball, to about $3 million a year, TMZ reports.
Now, he is still willing to cough up $20,000 a month for his two little girls, including tuition, even though their expenses are only somewhere between $7,000 and $12,000 a month. But apparently, that’s not good enough for Scurtis, who wants that number to be closer to $50,000 every month.
The 43-year-old former ball player is arguing that Scurtis is wealthy herself and has millions in the bank, along with three homes and multiple cars. She also has a new child and fiance whom he feels like he’s also supporting with his payments.
Rodriguez also says that despite having a master’s degree in psychology, she chooses not to work.
Back in April, Rodriguez ripped a report that claimed he was threatening to slash his child support payments over his legal battle over a real estate partnership with Scurtis’ brother, Constantine. “I have always paid far more than the maximum in child support and that will never change,” Rodriguez told Page Six.
Neither A-Rod nor his ex-wife have commented on the reports.
