Skip to comments.Rielle Hunter Said to Seek $17,000 a Month From John Edwards in Child Support
Posted on 12/18/2009 2:38:12 PM PST by Zakeet
Rielle Hunter wants John Edwards to pay $17,910 a month in child support for her daughter, Frances Quinn Hunter, according to the National Enquirer. Private financial negotiations between Hunter and Edwards reportedly broke down last week when her demands for the 22-month-old child were more than the former senator and presidential candidate was willing to pay.
Edwards has never publicly acknowledged that he is the girl's father, but did admit to an affair with Hunter at a time when his wife, Elizabeth, was battling cancer.
Now, legal documents obtained by Radaronline.com appear to show communication between Hunter and her attorney, Frank Louis, preparing to sue Edwards for $214,920 in annual child support.
The documents indicate Hunter is not employed -- and do not factor in any income from her -- but say she spends $2,100 a month on babysitting and will pay $1,500 a month for private preschool.
It is unclear how Hunter now affords her $11,560 in monthly expenses, but it has been speculated that she is living off a temporary financial agreement with Edwards. The documents also prompt questions as to why Hunter would need a full-time nanny if her child is in preschool and she does not work.
Hunter's other monthly expenses for herself and daughter whom the lawyer refers to as "Quinn" -- seem extremely high: $600 for clothes, $800 for vacations, $800 on restaurants and $500 for entertainment. What kind of vacations the mother and daughter take that would cost $9,600 a year is not explained.
One also questions how one woman and a toddler can eat at restaurants to the tune of $800 a month, especially in light of the $1,000 a month they spend on groceries at home.

This after Hairball bought his squeeze a new house and is being investigated for witness tampering (more about both stories HERE).
At least Tiger had no interest in running our lives, unlike this guy.
And men like these will continue to get involved with slutty trash.
Ex-wives and ex-mistresses are the BEST form of wealth redistribution, aren’t they John-boy?
Ouch! That was an expensive rendezvous (if you know what I mean).
She looks like the Duchess of Cornwall’s less successful sister.
$17,000 a month. Won’t do it in a few months. Obama is monetizing the debt, and hyper-inflation is about to hit. Is the DNC kicking its hush money in? Come on DNC, you gotta help a poh boy out! (sarc.)
Priceless. The ultimate bimbo hustles the ultimate political whore. Keep channeling them babies, Johnny boy!!
NOBODY can make this stuff up! It just doesn’t get any better!
There really should have been a “Slimeball Alert” attached to this headline!
He ain’t no Tiger..
Pay up, Suckah!
Well, I guess that since she can’t get him AND his money that she needs to rfor something.
I dislike the pretty pony, but that’s defacto alimony.
“At least Tiger had no interest in running our lives, unlike this guy.”
He didn’t have time.
Hey, maybe Tiger’s ex can get the Silky Pony to represent her? Man, think how much richer they could get feasting on THEM bones...if the change to a California court scheme falls through, that might be a good next scam to try out...get Johnny on him.
“She looks like the Duchess of Cornwalls less successful sister.”
The “Queen of Alphabet City?”
Perhaps the American people’s survival instincts will be honed such that the next time a politician barely elected to the senate suddenly decides they are ready to be President, people will see the danger in such unbridled ambition and malignant narcissism ...
Oh crap ... nevermind.
I think they are both despicable human beings - which again encourages me to support a National Health System requiring IQ and STD tests before awarding government approved copulation and conception permits.
In our prior, civilized society; Edwards would be considered a bigamist and Hunter a blackmailing harlot.
The two Americas. Wife and kids; Mistresses and kids.
The thief is robbed. Fool.
They have very little in common with normal people.
Queen of Alphabet City?
too true chilltherats,
If you sat down to write a gutter novel you couldn’t have come up with a more slimey plot. Or a more greasy guy.
Did she include future visits to the plastic surgeon with the monthly bills?
John’s haircut doesn’t look up to par in this photo. The top sort of bulges out like a mushroom. I think this whole ordeal has started taking it’s toll and he’s forced to go to the regular neighborhood barbershop rather than having his stylist flown in. Oh, the despair.
Wow whooda thunk a mistress whore having a baby could net her 200 grand a year?
She's a lowlife skank, but he's certainly no better, and he saw fit to build himself a 28,000 square foot home sporting, among other things, TWO theaters (because apparently he didn't see how he could get by with just one). So I really have no sympathy when he and his lawyers try to complain that Rielle's budget for herself and the baby is unjustifiably high. It's probably no more than the monthly electric bill for his mega-McMansion.
If Edwards didn't want any more children to support, he could certainly have gotten himself snipped and avoided all this. He and his wife were certainly well past having any more the natural way (and you can still have them the unnatural way after you're snipped). I seriously think he intentionally got her pregnant. Regretted it later, but it was intentional at the time he did it. These two deserve each other. Too bad about all the kids involved, though.
He should have her and his son move into the BIG HOUSE with the rest of his family. Then they won’t have to live in the other America.
I guess so!
Heck, the BIG HOUSE is sooooooooooo BIG, he could probably move them in there without Elizabeth ever noticing.
You don’t want there to be ‘TWO AMERICAS’ now do you?! /s
I wonder if he bought furniture for her new house for Elizabeth's new furniture store...with a family discount!
All that I can say is that is one very bad looking, very very expensive piece of you know what.........they deserve each other. The one that is losing out on all of this is the child.
I'm sure in Edwards world, that would get extremely ugly.
Interesting......he looks gay and she looks like a drag queen....
I don’t get it. She looks like she was in an axe fight and didn’t have an axe. sd
Awfully high maintenance for a trailer trash slut, and an ugly one at that. At least Tiger's babes were classic sluts & generally very good looking!!! LOL!!!
On the other hand, it is great to see John Edwards now on the receiving end of financial extortion, after raking in millions as an ambulance chaser and destroying the lives of many doctors in the process. In fact, I wish that Riella Hunter would increase the monthly amount by 10X, just to see the Breck girl Edwards sweating bullets. Or whatever he sweats when he gets nervous!!!
Hey, John, your lover needs a neck job. Better shell out!
True. I am sick of hearing about these creeps and their sluts trying to exhort money from them on the backs of children or they were wronged.
It’s about money and money only.
Right. He plays, he pays, PERIOD. No sympathy for the RAT
“I think they are both despicable human beings - which again encourages me to support a National Health System requiring IQ and STD tests before awarding government approved copulation and conception permits.”
- Then again..maybe IQ isn’t all that revealing when it comes to how morals play out in the real world..
The story should say 18K per month. That is a FAR more accurate way to round it.
It’s actually TAX FREE defacto alimony!! You don’t claim Child Support on your taxes; daddykins pays for the taxes up front on it!!
I’m no fan of Mr. Hair either, but CS laws are outrageous here and in Canada. We have debtor’s prisons for CS and most of the time it goes to implants for the exs and not for the sake of the children. My husband’s children are sent in undersized rags for their visitation by ex-wife; she’s a child protective worker and makes much more than my husband does; hubby pays 50% to her directly via CSEU of his NET income in CS. Nice work if you can get it!
