Another celebrity couple’s divorce drama is about to get a lot more messy. Lauri Warning, former cast member of The Real Housewives of Orange County, is suing ex-husband, Philip Waring. The multiple-divorced single mother is reportedly demanding more support from Phillip, specifically $12,000 per month to supplement her income.
Lauri claims that Philip earns $360,000 per year and that she is only earning $400 per month. The reason behind Lauri’s demand for more cash seems unclear, considering that she’s remarried to an even wealthier man—unless this means that Lauri is no longer with new husband George Peterson? Or maybe she’s just trying to gain additional financial support to help her son, Josh, who was charged with two felony counts of possession and intent to sell heroin and ecstasy and was sentenced to jail.
According to TMZ, however, Philip is the one trying to modify how much money Lauri’s getting and not the other way around. Evidently, Philip doesn’t want to pay Lauri anymore so she had to turn in an expense report, which is the document that states she only makes $400 a month.
During her time on The Real Housewives of Orange County, Lauri’s life has already been shrouded in controversy. She used to live in a grand house with maid service in neighboring Dove Canyon with her ex-husband, but, in the aftermath of her latest divorce, had to downsize to a smaller townhouse outside the gates in Ladera Ranch. At the time, she still attended parties at Hugh Hefner’s Playboy mansion and to make ends meet, worked in Real Housewives co-star Vicki Gunvalson’s home insurance office. She then married wealthy real estate and land developer George and left The Real Housewives of O.C. last season to focus on her on her family and to deal with son Josh’s drug addiction and incarceration.
