Alimony is one of those aspects of divorce that can make people upset in Massachusetts and anywhere else; too much being given to an ex-spouse can seem harsh, but not enough could leave you without enough to live on, whether you're paying the bill or receiving the check. In this divorce case, a celebrity couple is arguing because the man, Eddie Cibrian, has claimed that he overpaid his ex, Brandi Glanville, by over $100,000. While she receives both child support and alimony, he is claiming that the money was overpaid to her as spousal support and wasn't for the children.
According to the news from Feb. 20, a number of sources have reported that an audit of the situation only showed the money being paid as support, not as child support or alimony specifically. Cibrian claims that he overpaid his ex $114,738 in alimony and that child support had nothing to do with the overpayment.
