Singer Marc Anthony is fighting back against his ex-wife's demand for an increase in her monthly child support payments, despite revealing he earns a massive $1.25 million (£781,250) a month.

Former Miss Universe Dayanara Torres filed court papers in November (13), demanding Anthony boost her regular $13,000 (£8,125) instalments to $112,000 (£70,000) as his salary had changed dramatically since they settled their divorce and custody issues in 2004.

She claimed the lack of adequate funds meant she had to sell her previous home and move with their young sons Cristian and Ryan into a cramped apartment in the San Fernando Valley in California, instead of live in luxury like his twins with Jennifer Lopez do.

However, the salsa star has hit back, insisting Torres is to blame for her own financial issues as she has allegedly failed to manage her funds properly.

In the legal documents, Anthony reveals he pays Torres a total of $28,416 (£17,760)-a-month for spousal and child support, which should be more than enough to pay for a comfortable home.

The court papers required the singer to detail his monthly salary, which he listed as $1.25 million, while he also claimed he is worth $20.8 million (£13 million), according to

Anthony, who makes millions from touring, his clothing line with U.S. department store Kohl's, and his stake in the Miami Dolphins American football franchise, also detailed his child support expenses for his kids with Lopez, which amount to $18,000 (£11,250)-a-month.

He wed Lopez shortly after his divorce from Torres was finalised in 2004, but the superstar couple split in 2011.
