She has full custody of their daughters and she earns $40,000 a month in child support payments and $20,000 for alimony. Martin was ordered by the courts to pay such a large amount because he still receives royalties from his 90’s hit series Martin and when the series was released to DVD copies of season 3 and 4 were sold out within 4 weeks. The show was cancelled in 1997 but he earned $10 million in 2011 from syndication, image rights and DVD sells.
