Judge gives Miguel Cabrera break on child support, but affair cost Tigers star millions

Under an amended final judgement, Cabrera will now pay $14,000 a month in child support to the woman he secretly fathered two children with, instead of the $20,000 a month that was originally ordered in March.

That may sound like chump change for a man who makes $30 million a year. But Cabrera got frugal during the case and scored some points with the judge, who tweaked his original order to Cabrera’s liking.

Considering I actually work in child support, I expect the comments here to be measured, dispassionate and extremely accurate, just like the comments on language education (which is my background).

I have to hand it to Miguel, to have stayed around after pregnancy and birth number 1 and the post-birth recovery time to go a second round; his infidelity was fairly loyal.

a big house with a swimming pool to live in
If the kids are living in the swimming pool, Cabrera may have the same romantic abnormality as Troy McClure.
