(Newser) – We don't know how much child support Linda Evangelista is getting now that she's settled with babydaddy Francois-Henri Pinault, but we know that she wanted $46,000 a month. That sounds like a lot, but the AP finds five more celebrities who found themselves paying quite a bit—in some cases, more:

  • Charlie Sheen: Had to pay $55,000 per month to Brooke Mueller for their twins, and Warner Bros. was ordered to garnish his wages in order to make sure it happened.

  • Martin Brodeur: The New Jersey Devil was ordered to pay his ex-wife $500,000 per year in alimony from 2009 until 2020, plus another $132,000 in child support yearly.
  • Russell Simmons: Had to pay $40,000 per month to ex-wife Kimora Lee Simmons in support for their two daughters.
