The 43-year-old former baseball star ‘feels he’s paying excessive amounts to his ex,’ according to PEOPLE.
Rodriguez coughs up $115,000 a month tax-free in combined spousal and child support.
“They have been discussing his payments for awhile through lawyers,” a source tells PEOPLE of the exes, who share two daughters: Natasha, 13, and Ella, 10.
“He is not going to do anything to change what his daughters get from their father or will he change anything about their time with him,” the source says of child support. However, spousal support for Scurtis, 45, is a point of contention for Rodriguez, who has been dating Jennifer Lopez, 49, since March 2017.
Attorneys for both Rodriguez and Scurtis did not immediately respond to PEOPLE’s request for comment. This feels like a planted PR story from A-Rod’s people.
A-Rod has all the money in the world, but that doesn’t mean he wants to give his ex wife more than he thinks she needs. They’ll duke it out in court, but for now they’re battle in the court of public opinion.
To put things in perspective, Alex Rodriguez has been paying ex Cynthia Scurtis $1,380,000 a year.
