Jon Cryer Must Pay Child Support
Jon Cryer's efforts to get out of paying child support to his ex-wife -- who no longer has custody of their kid -- have been stymied after an appeals court ruled the actor MUST shell out $8,000 per month.
The "Two and a Half Men" actor had been waging the battle for years -- claiming he shouldn't have to fork over a single cent to Sarah Trigger Cryer because she only looks after their young son 4% of the time.
The two divorced back in 2004 -- and since then, the courts have SIGNIFICANTLY reduced Sarah's parental rights because a family court does not believe she's a fit parent.
But the California Court of Appeal believes lowering Jon's child support obligation could have a negative effect on the child -- and yesterday, it rejected Jon's appeal.
The court explained, "Although, understandably, Jon may have found the situation unfair, the primary focus must remain on the child's well-being, not the parents' feelings."
