Shannon Beador feels “vindicated” after her ex David stormed out of an Orange County courtroom after the judge declined his request to lessen his monthly child and spousal support payments, RadarOnline.com exclusively learned.
In addition, David was told by the judge on Thursday, February 7 that he “cannot order” The Real Housewives of Orange County star to stop drinking alcohol around their three daughters — Sophie, 17, and 14-year old twins Adeline and Stella.
According to a source close to Shannon, who was spotted by an eyewitness exiting the courtroom with a smile on her face, the reality star "is ecstatic over the court’s ruling!”
“She honestly has zero sympathy for David and will not give into his request to lessen child support payments, or spousal support payments.”
As previously reported, David argued that Shannon made twice as much as him and had earned $900,000 in the past year. In divorce documents obtained by Radar, Shannon claimed to have made $423,000 in the past year — a drastic difference from David’s estimate.
“It is destroying our children,” David said to the court. “It’s unbelievably sad that this is about money. Mrs. Beador, God bless her, she’s doing amazingly well. I’m so proud of her. She’s doing fantastic. She’s making a ton of money. It’s unbelievable but it’s my opinion that because she is getting $22,500 a month there is no reason to settle the case. There’s just never a reason.”
However, the insider told Radar that David’s plea meant nothing to the blonde beauty!
“Shannon did appreciate David’s kind words and how he said that he was proud of her, but that does not make up for the fact that he was an abusive husband who cheated on her,” the source told said.
“He was responsible for ruining their marriage and their family. She wants him to pay for the rest of his life for trying to ruin hers.”
Judge James L. Waltz told the duo — who didn’t look at each other once during the heated court session — that he does not want to try the case twice and that he would consider changing David’s $30,000 a month child and spousal support payments when the bitter exes go to trial in two months.
