According to court filings, Jaime King's former husband is in such bad financial health that he is heavily indebted and on the verge of going without a home.
Kyle Newman asserts that the "Heart of Dixie" actress has not yet paid the $429 monthly for child support and the $1,000 monthly for spousal support that the court has mandated.
Additionally, he claims that the actress is hiding her income, has frozen the $1.5 million sale profits from their family home, and "decimated" their common property retirement accounts by withdrawing over $500,000 from them, according to TMZ.
According to the article, Kyle, who is married to Jamie and has two children, is so deeply in debt that he is using his retirement funds to make ends meet. Kyle claimed he put his writing and directing careers on hold to care for his two children because Jamie was the family's primary provider.
In the court records, he makes it apparent that he wants Jamie to suffer some financial hardship by requesting that the judge order Jamie to pay $700,000 in legal fees. He also demands a $50,000 punishment from her for allegedly delaying the payments of spousal support and child support, as well as the proceeds from the sale of their joint residence.
To put it mildly, Jamie and Kyle's breakup has been tumultuous as each has levelled charges at the other: He has alleged she has an opioid and alcohol addiction; she has claimed he has stalked and electronically tracked her.
