Harvey Weinstein Is Now Apparently Too Broke To Pay Child Support
It’s safe to say that no one has had a worser year than Harvey Weinstein, who, according to Page Six, is so broke now that he’s struggling to play child support for his two daughters — and has requested “at least one year” to come up with it.
On Friday, Manhattan Supreme Court Justice Michael Katz released his sealed Jan. 2 ruling denying a demand by the disgraced mogul’s first wife, Eve Chilton, for $5 million that Weinstein still owes her from their 2004 divorce settlement.
Eve “claimed such relief was warranted as there was ‘real and present danger’ he would default on his financial obligations to her, noting she was informed he would not be able to pay his child support for at least one year,” the decision says.
Her attorneys said, “He’s prepaying many, many lawyers many, many millions of dollars to defend himself against these lawsuits all over the world.”
The $5 million will go toward supporting the ex-couple’s 19- and 14-year-old daughters. The funds include $50,000 a year for vacations, a total $100,000 for camp, and $500,000 for college.
