Marc Anthony's ex-wife Dayanara Torres is demanding the Latin superstar increase his monthly child support payments from $13,000 (£8,670) to $112,000 (£74,670), according to a U.S. report.

The former Miss Universe claims Anthony's salary has soared since they settled their 2004 divorce and custody over their two sons, Cristian, 12, and Ryan, 10, and she is preparing to fight for more money in court this week (begs25Nov13).

However, the salsa singer's lawyer, Daniel Jaffe, insists his client has paid more than his fair share to ensure the boys are well taken care of, in addition to $3,500 (£2,330) in spousal support.

Jaffe tells the New York Post, "Marc has paid every penny, well over $13,000 a month. (He) has paid for all of the kids' schooling, band lessons, camps, and all medical and dental costs. Virtually everything."

Anthony, who makes millions from touring, his clothing line with U.S. department store Kohl's, and his stake in the Miami Dolphins American football franchise, is planning to fight Torres' request.

The singer wed Jennifer Lopez just a week after his four-year union to second wife Torres was officially declared over, but Anthony's third marriage fell apart in 2012. He has since been romantically linked to Chloe Green, the daughter of Topshop founder Sir Philip Green.
