Robert Halderman, the man at the center of the David Letterman extortion scandal, has pretty high monthly outgoings, thanks to his child support obligations.
Halderman was required to pay his ex-wife Patty Monet $6,800 per month according to his divorce settlement agreement signed in 2004. The amount was later reduced to $5,966.66 per month.
The CBS producer also agreed to pay for the unreimbursed medical bills for his two children and was also required to maintain life insurance.
In addition, the court have the power to order one of the parents to pay their children’s college education – one of his children is now 18, college age.
Police sources say that Halderman’s motivation for the alleged extortion was money.
