THE WIFE OF a US billionaire is claiming $1 million in child support which includes $6,800 for groceries and $300,000 for a private jet.

Ken Griffin, who has an estimated net worth of $6.5 billion, filed for divorce from his wife Anne Dias-Griffin in July last year – while his wife was away on holiday with their children, Business Insider reports.

She first tried to claim the $1 million in living expenses as part of marital maintanence but this attempt failed and Dias-Griffin is now making a plea for the monthly payment as child support.

A breakdown from Page Six shows she is asking for:

  • $160,000 for vacation accommodations
  • $6,800 for groceries$7,200 for dining
  • $2,000 for stationery
  • $60,000 for office space and professional staff
  • $300,000 for a private jet

Under the terms of the couple’s prenuptial agreement, the woman has already received around $40 million. However she has petitioned for sole custody of their three children, who are all under 10,  and an equitable division of their assets.
