Former NY Giant and Today Show correspondent Tiki Barker is claiming that his estranged wife Ginny, who he left while she was pregnant with twins for a much younger blonde intern, is shaking him down for thousands and thousands of dollars in alimony knowing full well he's broke.
Tiki Barber's buddies are blasting claims that the ex-Giants superstar is too broke to pay a divorce settlement demanded by the mother of his four young kids -- saying Ginny Barber is trying to bleed him dry while herself squandering cash.
And a close Barber friend said Ginny’s camp has been obsessed with smearing Tiki since he left her for a young blond while the wife was pregnant with twins -- while Tiki has focused on getting shared custody of the kids.
“Ginny wants $150,000 per month from him in alimony'' and child support that outraged pal fumed to The Post’s Dan Mangan. “In due time, if Tiki was dumb enough to give her that amount, he would be broke.”
“P.S.: She’s hired a baby nurse to take care of the kids for $60,000,” the friend said. “And Ginny’s legal bill is approximately $75,000 per month to Nancy Chemtob,” her lawyer, said the friend.source
Another well-place source confirmed those jaw-dropping dollar amounts.
The buddy confirmed that Tiki, who had been working as a NBC’s “Today Show” correspondent, has “parted ways with NBC” on the heels of the scandal. That job paid him an estimated $300,000 annually.
Ginny’s rep said the claim of a $150,000- per-month alimony demand “is categorically untrue. That number is completely and utterly ridiculous.” The rep added, “She does not even have a nanny.''
The rep also denied the amount purportedly paid Chemtob by Ginny.
This is a battle Tiki can't win. Will the Giants take him back?
