The bombshell request comes just hours after reported exclusively that Shannon — who filed papers requesting spousal support and full custody of their teen daughters Sophie, 16, and twins Stella and Adaline, 13 — is getting everything she wanted.

But Shannon isn't done! “I am requesting that the Court award me $25,000 as and for an initial contributory share of my attorney’s fees, expert fees, and other costs,” Shannon notes in the court docs filed on December 4, 2017.

Shannon alleges her ex is far more than capable of meeting her demand. “David has far greater access to funds to pay attorney fees, and the amount of the award for which request is made is modest relative to David’s income.”

"David earns more that five times what I earn," she claims.

The docs note the fees and costs can be paid through the “respondents earnings," which, according to the papers, is a total of "$1,794,315 year-to-date through 10/31/2017."

But David claims the income estimate listed is overstated, and therefore Shannon will need to “hire a forensic accountant to assist me in evaluating David’s claim in this regard."

As readers know, Shannon f David — who had an eight-month affair on her in 2015 with a married family friend — after they were unable to work out their issues on this past season of the hit reality series.
