How much would you need for child support for your offspring? The national average is about $300 a month (although that’s probably lower on the scale). But child support is generally based on how much the father or mother make, and celebrities? They make a lot, a whole lot. So the children of a broken up couple aren’t looking at support payments of $300 or $3,000, we’re talking about $20,000, $30,000 even $50,000 a month.
How much money is being spent on child support by these 11 celebrities (the ones we know about that is, many celebs are able to keep these numbers private)?
