Billionare Donald L. Bren could be paying $400,000 month in child support as trial begins this week.

Billionaire Donald L. Bren child support case could involve $400,000 month. Donald L. Bren is involved in a case where his trial begins this week. The political donor and generous philanthropist has two children, Christie, 22, and David, 18, while spending $3 million to $5 million.

Bren could be paying child support, if you can imagine that. The potentially massive payments are deserved, given the $3 million to $5 million per month they contend he was spending during the last few years. He was short with the support.

Christie, 22, and David, 18, are hoping to receive child support. These children are from a relationship with a former girlfriend. They are claiming that their father, Donald L. Bren, was stingy when it came to making payments.

According to court records, former girlfriend Jennifer McKay Gold described Bren living a luxurious lifestyle, including a fleet of five jets with two full-time pilots, a 240-foot yacht with a crew, lavish homes in Bel Air and Orange County, a ranch in Idaho and a staff of servants. "It costs a lot of money to keep all of these things going," Gold recalled Bren saying in a talk about his spending.

The 78-year-old has an estimated net worth of $12 billion. He is ranked 16th in Forbes magazine's ranking of the 400 richest Americans. "Bren had gone to 'incredible lengths' to avoid detailing his fortune," Attorney Hillel Chodos, who represents Gold and her children, said in a statement.
