John Schneider Accused of Owing More Than $1M in Unpaid Spousal Support

The 'Dukes of Hazzard' actor and his ex-wife, Elvira Schneider, have reached a divorce settlement back in August 2019 with him agreeing to pay her $25,000 each month.

AceShowbiz - John Schneider's ex-wife Elvira Schneider has claimed the actor owes her more than $1 million (£773,290) in unpaid spousal support.

"The Dukes of Hazzard" actor spent five years battling the end of his marriage and briefly spent time behind bars over unpaid alimony, after the 59-year-old told the judge overseeing the case he could not afford to pay his then-estranged wife.

However, according to legal papers obtained by TMZ, Elvira says the star shorted her $1,115,824 (£862,856) - including a previously agreed-upon 10 per cent interest rate.

Back in September, 2016, John was ordered to pay $18,911 (£14,624) per month while they were still hammering out the divorce. They finally reached a settlement last August (2019), and his monthly fee jumped to $25,000 (£19,332).

According to Elvira, the star earns $172,777 (£133,607) per month, and if he can't pay her in one lump sum, she's asked the court to give her a share of John's income from the 30 different studios and production companies that pay him.

John has moved on from his separation, and wed girlfriend Alicia Allain last summer (2019).
