(ABC News) – Life appears to be imitating art for actor Jon Cryer.
On “Two and a Half Men,” he plays a divorced, check-writing dad, and now his real-life courtroom battle reads like a scene straight out of his hit TV show.
According to court documents obtained by ABC News, Cryer’s ex-wife, Sarah Trigger, claims that since her custody of their 13-year-old son Charlie has jumped from 4 percent to 50 percent, her child support should go up too — from $8,000 a month to nearly $90,000 a month.
“This is the tale of two separate lifestyles that which Charlie experiences,” the petition reads. “Currently Charlie experiences two different lifestyles depending on which parent he’s with. Fifty percent of the time Charlie is able to compete with his peers on a level playing field and the other 50 percent of the time Charlie is not able to compete on a level playing field.”
