Jon Cryer's ex-wife claims their son is ridiculed by schoolmates due to 'deprived' $8k per month upbringing

His father earns an estimated $2 million per month.

But Jon Cryer's ex-wife has accused the star of depriving their son Charlie in newly filed legal papers.

Sarah Trigger is seeking a more than tenfold increase on her $8,000 child support payments, purportedly so her boy does not feel so out of place at the snooty Buckley School in the posh Sherman Oaks area of Los Angeles

It's a hard life: Jon Cryer's former wife Sarah Trigger is taking him to court claiming her $8,000 per month in child support is not enough

According to TMZ she is fuming at the amount she is getting, and is claiming the Two and a Half Men star earns a mammoth $2m per month.

And she claims the person who is being most affected by her lack of funds is their 13-year-old son.

One of her allegations is that he cannot afford to go to the fancy summer camps his friends attend, and that while his friends go on 'exotic vacations in the summer and winter like Europe and Thailand' he is forced to stay at home.

In addition she is unhappy that his cohorts thro 'huge birthday parties at expensive places like Sky High Sports and they invite the entire grade.'

Perhaps most disappointingly, he has to watch from the sidelines while his well-heeled Jewish friends enjoy Bar Mitzvah extravaganzas.

She claims: 'Last year there were multiple Bar Mitzvahs and Bat Mitzvahs all with custom invitations, a dress code and huge private receptions afterward.'

To help her furnish their son with a more acceptable standard of living she is after an eye-watering $88,969 per month.

Her argument for the gigantic hike is that when she got child support in 2010, she only had custody 4per cent of the time, hence the low payout. 

But now she has custody 50per cent of the time, so feels she is due a proportional increase in her allowance.

It is not the first time she has crossed swords with her 46-year-old former spouse over child finance.

In 2011 he was ordered to continue paying her $8,000 per month, despite having close to full custody of their boy.

Following their 2004 divorce, Cryer was granted more custody after a family court deemed Trigger 'not a fit parent'.

Trigger was arrested in May 2009 in relation to suspicion of child abuse. 

At the time of the incident, police received a call from her new husband in relation to their two-year-old son, who had sustained injuries, reportedly on his neck.

The Buckley School is Paris Hilton's alma mater. For all the good it did her.

I really hate when people equate what a parent pays the other parent as the ONLY support they pay towards their kids. I'm sure Jon pays tuition, transportation. Plus he pays for lodging, food, activities and other expenses when his son is with him. Which is 50 percent of the time.

sounds like someone doesn't want to take care of his responsibilities...even if you think she's just in it for the money, you still have to consider that the kid is being emotionally damaged because he knows his dad is vindictive and greedy.

He's probably ridiculed for wearing granny glasses with Transitions lenses in them.

"But now she has custody 50per cent of the time, so feels she is due a proportional increase in her allowance." Okay, so if that's the case, then her "allowance" should increase 50% from $8,000 to $16,000/month, right? Not $88,969! But, honestly, I think it's ridiculous that she expects more than $8,000 a month, which is FAR more money than I see each month. I think she needs to take the kid out of that pricey school and put him in a school where he won't have to deal with ultra-rich classmates. It's not like there are only posh schools and crime-ridden inner-city schools and nothing in between. There are plenty of great schools to choose from where all the kids aren't stinking rich.

I am sure that if he really wants to go to camp he would take the application form to daddy and ask him to pay directly and like most divorced parents daddy would pay for it within mins.

I didn't realise how smarmy Jon Cryer looks and what the hell does the idiot ex-wife do with $8,000 a month child maintenance?
