David Beador is gunning for ex Shannon's hard-earned Real Housewives of Orange County money after the reality star got a massive pay boost, according to explosive never-before-seen court documents exclusively obtained by RadarOnline.com.
According to income and expense reports filed in the RHOC couple’s bitter divorce battle, David claims Shannon makes a whopping $800k for her starring role on the hit Bravo show — a far cry from the $400k she declared in her latest documents filed October 2018.
The documents obtained by Radar detail Shannon's income based off her Bravolebrity status.
Shannon earned $181,390 from Central Entertainment Group — a management company that manages reality TV personalities for bookings and endorsements.
For RHOC season 12 Shannon raked in $31,500 and then $583,338 for season 13.
She also made $5,150 from NBC Universal for "network sponsored events."
Meanwhile, David lists his monthly income as 22k, with a total expenses of $30k a month and only $11k in his checkings/savings account.
In the court documents obtained exclusively by Radar, David, again, makes mention of Shannon's alleged drinking in front of the children.
“The mother had publicly stated on television within the last month, she ‘self-medicates’ with alcohol. That behavior is detrimental to the children,” David’s court documents stated.
“I requested Mrs. Beador agree to not drinking or being drunk in front of the children and the request was denied and in fact disputed that she even stated she ‘self-medicates’ even though the television clip of her stating it is currently on the Bravo (NBCU) website and was included and quoted on several media articles,” David said in the documents previously obtained by Radar.
I think she self-medicated herself many times and it’s a depressant,” Judge said on the Bravo show.
“Oh we all do,” Shannon responded “And I admit it.”
David keeps fighting the court to lower his $22,500 a month in support he gives to Shannon as their bitter divorce went through the courts.
As Radar has extensively reported, the former couple has been battling over financial and custody issues for more than a year.
In October, Shannon slammed David in court as a “disgusting” “nickel and dimer” after he tried to cut down his spousal support.
They return to court in the spring.
