Braunwyn Windham-Burke Asks Ex Sean for at Least $10K a Month in Spousal Support

The 'Real Housewives of Orange County' alum makes the request two months after she filed for divorce from his ex-husband, with whom she shares seven kids Bella, Rowan, Jacob, twins Caden and Curren, Koa and Hazel.

AceShowbiz - Braunwyn Windham-Burke is asking for financial assistance from ex-husband Sean Burke, two months after she filed for divorce from him. According to court documents, "The Real Housewives of Orange County" star claimed that she is "unable to provide" for herself or their kids.

The docs, which were obtained by Us Weekly, also stated that Sean "stopped providing any support" for their seven kids. The former couple shares Bella (22), Rowan (20), Jacob (17), twins Caden and Curren (9), Koa (7) and Hazel (4) together.

"I have relied on [Sean] for all financial security since I was 20 years old," Braunwyn wrote, claiming that she cannot offer "basic living expenses [or] expenses for our children" at the moment. "I have relied on [Sean] to make all financial decisions for 23 years, and I have effectively been kept in the dark regarding the true extent of our business interests and assets."

She went on to say that she only has $2,900 in her accounts. "I am unemployed. Except for two years during our nearly 23-year marriage, I have stayed home to care for our seven children," she penned. "We traveled with the children to Europe, Miami, Puerto Rico, New York and many other island vacations. We would dine out weekly at restaurants such as Mastros, Javier's and Marmalade where our average check exceeded $500.00."

"We had two nannies and a full-time housekeeper. I had a private trainer, and a stylist that would come to the house monthly and had my hair and makeup done regularly. … I enjoyed a [shopping] budget and bought luxury handbags," she continued.

The former Bravo star is now seeking at least $10,000 per month in spousal support from Burke, arguing that he makes more than $65,000 per month. She is also asking for her ex to pay her lawyers' fees.

In his response, Sean agreed to give Braunwyn spousal support. However, he is asking the court to "reserve for future determination the issue of support payable to" him as well, Page Six reported.

Braunwyn filed for divorce from Sean in October after nearly 23 years of marriage. The reality TV star, who came out as gay in 2020, listed the date of official separation as October 13, 2022. "Braunwyn knew she needed to do this at some point to fully explore her life as a gay woman," a source close to Braunwyn said at the time of the divorce. "She's excited for the future."
