It’s an embarrassing time for parents everywhere. Embarrassing as in, we’re embarrassed for you, Sarah Trigger. This woman is suggesting that the $8,000 per month in child support she gets from ex, “Two and a Half Men” star Jon Cryer, isn’t enough for their son, Charlie, to keep up with his peers’ extravagant lifestyles, and that he has been ridiculed at school, according to TMZ.
Seriously? What have we come to? I don’t even know HOW I would spend $8,000 a month. But, then again, I am not the child stuck in a divorce in Hollywood, with the pressures of keeping up with snotty teenage Joneses. Thank God.
So, to remedy this horrible, heart-wrenching situation, she has asked a judge to grant her eleven times that. After all, Jon Cryer is making $2 Million each month doing “Two and a Half Men”, it shouldn’t be too much of a stretch for him. Perhaps for $88,969 the ex-Mrs. Cryer can keep her boy at the top of the social expectancy ladder. That would sure give us all a warm and cozy feeling.
Trigger said that Charlie’s friends would go on “exotic vacations in the summer and winter like Europe and Thailand” and hosted “huge birthday parties at expensive places like Sky High Sports and they invite the entire grade,” both of which she can’t afford. Poor thing. She’s aware that there are people who can’t afford to EAT everyday, right?
“Last year there were multiple Bar Mitzvahs and Bat Mitzvahs all with custom invitations, a dress code and huge private receptions afterward,” she continued. Well, now, if the judge grants poor Sarah Trigger’s request, hopefully she can lift her baby up to the standards that surround them. Then they won’t have to suffer anymore…
