We all know Harvey Weinstein would do Hollywood a solid by just turning into the face on the milk carton (or the face of Cellblock D at the Los Angeles County jail). Alas, he still manages to poke up, either in a Scottsdale restaurant slap fight or in a child support case with his first wife to say flies are coming out each time he opens his wallet.

I’m know next to nothing about child support, but here’s what I do know: you have to pay it! Dean McDermott has six kids, one of which requires child support. So you might think he would know a thing or two about fatherly financial responsibility, but he still hasn’t mastered the basics.
The embarrassing fight between Dean McDermott and his ex-wife Mary Jo Eustace over his unpaid child support is finally over. It didn’t end with Dean leaving a goodbye note to Tori Spelling on the kitchen counter (“Adios, mamacita!“) and running away to Tijuana to live as long as possible under an assumed name (El Ojos de Possum). E! News says that The Deaner has actually agreed to fork over the money he owes to Mary Jo.
Mary Jo agreed to withdraw her lawsuit against Dean earlier this month after he allegedly cried poor in court, claiming he had fallen on “hard times.” She won’t be re-filing any time soon. A source tells E! that Dean and Mary Jo recently came to an agreement outside of court. Dean reportedly owed Mary Jo $100,800 in unpaid child support, interest, and attorney’s fees, and he has agreed to pay her in installments until his debt is cleared. Dean cut Mary Jo a check for $6000 last Monday, and will send her another $2500 by the end of the month.
E! News says that Dean has until July 1, 2020 to pay it off. Sure, I totally see that happening. If Mary Jo wants to actually get paid, she’s got to threaten him with a penalty for missed payment. Like making sure every tattoo shop is mysteriously too busy to hook him up with any more dirt bag ink. You’ve got to hit him where it hurts. And we all know that’s not his bank account, since that lost feeling ages ago.
Tori Spelling is currently pregnant with her and Dean McDermott’s fifth child. Tori loves free shit and she loves to waste her mom’s money, so Candy Spelling threw her a huge, expensive baby shower on February 11th at the Bel Air Hotel. A source tells The Daily Mail that Candy dropped $40,000 on the baby shower, money that probably would have been better spent paying off one of Tori and The Deaner’s many debts. Or paying off Dean’s ex-wife Mary Jo Eustace.
Sources tell Page Six that Mary Jo was “livid” after she learned about the $40,000 baby shower. So livid she needed to zen-out in nature days after it happened, apparently.
Letting his mother-in-law throw a $40,000 baby shower might not have been the smoothest move; Dean reportedly owes Mary Jo thousands of dollars in unpaid child support for their 18-year-old son Jack. Mary Jo is taking The Deaner to court in Los Angeles next month.
Candy Spelling just spent $40,000 on Tori and The Deaner, and so I’m sure he’s going to hit her up for his latest child-related hand out. I bet he’s writing the email right now.
“Yo, whats’s up Candy Cane? Listen, The Deaner needs a financial favor from his favorite sugar grandmama. Turns out Daddy’s been a little greasy in the child support department. I figured since you’re already footing the bill for my other ones, you might help me out with the first one I made. If only The Deaner could get paid for making kids, amiright? PS – throw in a couple extra bucks for me? Taco Bell has this new fried chicken chalupa that I just can’t get enough of!”
There it is, the more obvious headline I’ve ever written, because of course Sherri Shepherd’s grifty ex-husband Lamar Sally wants more child support money. That’s like saying a dog wants to sniff more dog butts.
Now that Jeremy Renner’s latest child support fight with his ex-wife is over, he can move on to bigger battles. Like trying to convince his stylist to throw a couple more of those gorgeous crystal beaded roses on his tuxedo jacket next time. “Come on, how many times do I have to tell you? Jer’s gotta sparkle.”
Back in July, Jeremy’s ex-wife Sonni Pacheco continued her quest to get money by accusing him of owing more than $48,000 in unpaid child support for their 3-year-old daughter Ava Berlin. On top of the $48,000, Sonni also wanted Hawkeye to fork over an extra $1,600 a month for Ava’s preschool tuition payments. If you happen to see Sonni Pacheco doing a little happy dance at an ATM today, you’ll know why. TMZ says that Jeremy is giving Sonni more child support money. Jeremy’s child support payments will go from $13,000 to $16,000 a month. He has also agreed to cut Sonni a $24,000 check to cover the cost of her lawyer and accountant. No word on if he has also paid back that $48,000 he allegedly owed her in unpaid child support.
When Sonni first asked for more money from Jeremy two months ago, he allegedly texted her back “I don’t have the cash to give you.” And yet, Jeremy somehow managed to find several thousand extra dollars to give her. It’s a miracle! Or maybe it’s not a miracle, but merely Sonni’s expert-level get money skills at work. Sonni asked for an extra $1,600 and she got $3,000. Sonny should really consider buying up some of those recently-closed ITT Tech campuses and open her own for-profit school. Sonni could get paid to teach the next generation of aspiring her secrets to landing a lucrative money-hustling gig (possible name: 9 Months to $uccess). It’s a win-win for everyone!
