Leah from TeenMom is getting $500 a month from her ex husband , and wants more. 

Does anyone else think that she is getting out of line. I, personally, think that $500 is fine. She makes much more then him, she has a DH who helps her to pay rent and utilities, food.  her ex has these kids at his house often, he also feed then, getting diapers without anyone's help.

I agree. He has them 50% of the time. She shouldn't get anything.

 If my DH and I were to ever separate, I'd expect a 50/50 contribution regardless of who makes more.

                         


There is no way to be a perfect mother, and a million ways to be a good one.

I think what she gets is plenty but idk that's their issue. I think her husband makes 100k a year so that should be plenty enough. Judging by what they were living in on Corey's income alone, he probably doesn't make as much as Jeremy but Leah also gets paid for being on the show. I think she should be fine with what she has but that's between them.

Agreed. She wants $800, ridiculous.

When she stated that he did recive a raise, I was thinking, sure, he got a raise, child support shoudl be modified.. then he offered to buy the girls what they needed all Leah had to do was ask.. and she wasn't happy with that... she wants cash... If he was willing to buy the girls the things they needed,t hen I don't see why child support would need to be modified.. I think she just wants more money because they bought a home that perhaps they cannot afford.

She's money hungry... I dislike her a lot. She doesn't work but sure as hell likes to pretend that she supports them more then he does.

Considering you aren't in her bank account checking out her expenses, I'd say it's not your business

I think if the father has them 50% of the time, no one should have to pay anyone anything.
