The wife of a billionaire is asking for nearly $1 million a month in child support.

Kenneth Griffin’s soon-to-be ex-wife says she needs $300,000 a month for a private jet, $160,000 in vacation accommodations and even $2,000 a month for stationary.

Griffin claims the so-called budget includes over-the-top expenses to fund his wife’s extravagant lifestyle.

However, she may be awarded the money.

Under Illinois law, child support is calculated based on the standard of living the children would have enjoyed if the marriage didn’t fall apart.

A judge has yet to rule on the request.

Kenneth Griffin is the founder and CEO of Citadel, a global investment firm.
