From the NY Post:
Guardian Angels founder Curtis Sliwa says he’s fallen back down to Earth and makes only a small fraction of his 2009 career-high salary of $688,000.
“Those were the days, when I was making that kind of money,” the law-and-order legend reminisced from the witness stand at Manhattan Family Court on Monday.
He’s on trial over child support payments for his special needs, 9-year-old son Anthony with his ex-wife Mary Sliwa.
He now lives with Queens Borough President-elect Melinda Katz and their 2- and 5-year-old sons.
The crime-fighter turned radio talk show host says he can’t afford the $12,000-a-month he’d been paying to Mary because his salary was slashed to $120,000 at the end of last year.
“I can no longer do that. I don’t even make that,” Sliwa told The Post during a break in the proceedings.
He is also paying child support to Katz, per a 2011 agreement he made with his then-friend. The former City Councilwoman had their children through in-vitro fertilization using Sliwa’s sperm.
“Melinda Katz is squeezing him for every dime she can get,” said Mary’s attorney, Paul Siegert.
Katz is expected to take the stand on Wednesday.
