“I do not agree with the proposed guideline child support amount because the guideline calculation is based on inaccurate income information. The figure used for my income is based only on oral statements from Other Parent. Other Parent's statements are not accurate, and she knows they are not accurate,” he said.

A hearing has been set for May 8 where the judge will make a final determination.

In court documents, Noella listed the date of marriage as June 28, 2020, but did not list the date of separation. The ex-Bravo star cited “irreconcilable differences” as the reason for the breakup.

Noella demanded primary legal and physical custody of their 2-year-old son James Jr. Months later, Noella amended her petition to seek a divorce.

James filed his own divorce petition in Puerto Rico. He accused his ex of being hungry for fame and denied her claims he wasn’t providing support to her for their son.

Noella’s divorce from James was highlighted on RHOC. However, the storyline wasn’t enough to save Noelle from being cut after one season.
