There’s a new get-rich-quick scheme, ladies — though, by “quick,” we mean it takes about nine months and a fairly significant life change.
According to new reports, Briana Jungwirth, the mother of One Directioner Louis Tomlinson’s baby, is raking in child support in the five-figure range every month. Yes, you read that right. Five figures. That equals at least $120,000 a year, and that doesn’t even count the rent that Tomlinson pays for her four-bedroom home in Calabasas, California.
Whoa. That is a whole lot more than it actually costs to raise a baby. According to the most recent “Cost of Raising a Child” report from the U.S. Department of Agriculture, the average American family will spend approximately $254,000 to raise a child up to age 18. If reports about Jungwirth’s child support agreement are accurate, she could rake in that much before the kid is out of diapers.
Jungwirth and Tomlinson have gone back and forth about child support for their 6-month-old son, Freddie, and struggled to settle on an amount. Life and Style magazine reports that they’ve settled on the five-figure amount, but that it’s just a casual agreement — there’s nothing formal or legal holding them both to it. The sum is supposed to cover Jungwirth’s expenses so she can focus all of her time on raising Freddie, and with that kind of cash, we only hope she can manage to do that.
Do you think Louis Tomlinson’s child support agreement seems really high? Or does it sound about right for a major pop star? Let us know down in the comments.
