Mandy Moore wants spousal support from her ex.
The ‘A Walk To Remember’ star has submitted documents to court to ask her estranged husband Ryan Adams to pay her a hefty sum so she can care for their eight pets.
According to reports, court documents filed by Mandy’s legal team quote her as saying: “I feel as if I have no alternative. Although I love our pets, it is overwhelming for me to take care of eight of them all of the time.
“[I had to] cancel a prior work engagement because my housekeeper was ill and unable to stay with our pets while I travelled for work … Without Ryan’s help caring for the house and our pets, I have not been able to work as much as I would like.”
The 31-year-old star reportedly earns only a quarter of the musician’s annual income and she states, during their six year marriage, he made contributions to their mortgage, taxes and insurance.
Meanwhile, the pair insist their split was a “mutual” decision and that the break up is very “respectful and amicable”.
A spokesperson said at the time: “Mandy Moore and Ryan Adams have mutually decided to end their marriage of almost 6 years.
“It is a respectful, amicable parting of ways and both Mandy and Ryan are asking for media to respect their privacy at this time.”
