The expectant mother of Colin Farrell's son is reportedly locked in a bitter battle with the actor over money.

American model KIM BORDENAVE, 33, is preparing for the birth of their child next month (SEP03), and sources tell American tabloid the STAR that her family is urging her to finalise all the financial arrangements for the baby.

A source says, "Kim's family is telling her to take Colin to court for more money - and the baby isn't even born yet.

"Colin gives her $5,000 (GBP3,125) a month to prepare for the baby. But she used to make more than that modelling. Her family feels Colin should pick up the slack. He's worth millions."

On 30 July (03) Kim accompanied 27-year-old Farrell to the Los Angeles premiere of his new movie S.W.A.T but refused to walk the red carpet.

A source explains, "She didn't want to be photographed at eight months pregnant. She wants to be known for something other than getting pregnant by Colin Farrell."

Her family members are also said to be fuming over Farrell's recent announcement that he won't be at the birth of his first child as he'll be filming his anticipated movie Alexander.
