Last month, we learned that the family spent $1 million per month in expenses related to their three kids. The filings didn't break down the spending much, saying that it included $300,000 a month for intercontinental private-jet travel, $160,000 a month for vacation rentals and $60,000 a month for office space and professional staff. Now, new court documents give more details on the $1 million a month. According to filings late Friday, Griffin argued that his ex-wife, Anne Dias, is claiming expenses as child support even though the expenses are for her "lifestyle." Among the expenses: $6,800 a month for groceries, $7,200 a month for restaurant meals, $8,000 a month for gifts and $2,000 a month for stationery. Griffin also claims his wife has sought $450,000 for a 10-day vacation in St. Bart's during the children's winter break. [CNBC, related]
