Jennifer Freeman wants more for her daughter, which is why she is asking the courts for an increase in child support payments. According to legal documents obtained by TMZ, the actress is asking a judge to order her estranged husband, Earl Watson, to give more than the $2,500 per month that he ordinarily provides for Isabella.
The media source reports,
“The two are warring over cash — she claims she deserves way more than the court-ordered $2,500-per-month in child support since he’s rich. He claims he’s not as ballin’ as he used to be … because he’s retired from the NBA and only making $30k per year as a coach in the NBA’s D-league.”
In addition to sharing his financial constraints, Earl also told the courts that his estranged wife has experienced her share of money problems as well. According to the former NBA player, Jennifer has not been steadily employed as an actress since her gig on ‘My Wife and Kids’ ended a decade ago. Although she has scored a few paying roles here and there, such as her appearance on ‘Real Husbands of Hollywood’ in November, Jennifer has not established a continuous flow of revenue for her and Isabella to enjoy.
A judge is expected to hear both sides of the case in coming weeks. Isabella is Jennifer and Earl’s only child together.
