Mena Suvari’s Ex Asks for $17,000 per Month in Spousal Support

By Nottage and Ward on May 31, 2012

Another high-profile divorce is causing a stir, according to an article in The Huffington Post. Actress Mena Suvari, who is best known for her roles in American Beauty and the American Pie films, has had an expensive request from her second ex-husband, Simone Sestito, a concert promoter; he is requesting a whopping $17,000 a month in spousal support, or maintenance, after only 18 months of marriage.

In his request for such a high spousal support figure, Sestito claims that Suvari earns $750,000 a year and that during their marriage he became accustomed to a higher standard of living, including eating out just about every day at high-end restaurants. He listed his approximate dining expenses at $3,000 per month. Suvari, who filed for divorce in January 2012 under “irreconcilable differences,” has asked the court to deny her ex spousal support.

Suvari’s first marriage to cinematographer Robert Brinkmann, who was 17 years older than her, also ended in divorce. They were married for five years. The actress recently opened up to the media about her failed marriages saying that she had never thought she would have been divorced twice at 33-years-old, but that is where her life has taken her and she accepts it.

High-profile divorces involve all the same issues as a normal divorce, though on a larger scale financially. Regardless of the type of divorce you are getting, however, an experienced family law attorney can make sure all financial arrangements are fair.
