Jon Cryer's ex-wife has accused the actor of making their son a subject of ridicule at school because his child support payments aren't enough to cover expensive holidays and parties, reports TMZ.
In 2011, the "Two and a Half Men" star was ordered to pay $8,000-a-month to his ex-wife, Sarah Trigger, to cover the costs of bringing up their 13-year-old son, Charlie Austin.
Cryer tried to appeal the decision, insisting Trigger only looked after their son four percent of the time. However, she has filed new papers for the amount to be increased, asking for $88,969-a-month.
In documents, Trigger claims Charlie is suffering because he can't keep up with his wealthy school friends who enjoy "exotic vacations in the summer and winter like Europe and Thailand."
Trigger also notes how the boy's classmates throw lavish birthday parties and Bar/Bat Mitzvahs, the likes of which she can't afford to compete with given the amount Cryer provides her.
The documents allege Trigger, who contends that Cryer is pocketing around $2 million a month, needs the child support boost as she now looks after Charlie 50 percent of the time.
Cryer and Trigger divorced in 2004. In 2009, she was arrested for suspicion of child abuse in an incident involving another child, and in 2010 was investigated over threats leveled at the Emmy-winning actor (she vehemently denied the allegations).
Cryer married showbiz reporter Lisa Joyner in 2007, and they have a daughter, Daisy.
