Owen Wilson pays around $25,000 a month to support his baby daughter whom he has never met
Owen Wilson reportedly pays around $25,000 a month as child support for the baby girl whom he has never met.
Wilson had welcomed a daughter, Lyla Aranya Wilson, last year with his on and off partner Varunie Vongsvirates. According to court documents obtained by Radar Online, Wilson pays around $25,000 for the child's upkeep. Wilson, 51, had demanded a DNA test which came back as positive, showing him as the father of the child.
As per documents, he had made a one-off payment of a whopping $70,000 to the mother in order to cover a night nurse, labor coach, and Vongsvirates' legal fees. On the documents, he had reportedly ticked the 'none' box under visitation rights but agreed to add his daughter, 1, to his Screen Actors Guild medical insurance.
Wilson and Vongsvirates had dated for around five years before breaking up for good in 2018. 35-year-old Vongsvirates has sole custody of the child and can legally make decisions about Lyla's health, education, and welfare. She regularly posts pictures of the child on her Instagram.
Earlier this year, Vongsvirates had told Mail Online, that Wilson "helps financially but it's never been about that."
While asking the actor to see his daughter, Vongsvirates shared, "She's incredible, you're really missing out. She looks just like you. Lyla needs a father. It's ironic how [Owen] keeps getting these father roles, he's playing a father in his new movie, and he's never met his own daughter."
Wilson is the father of two boys already. He had his son Robert Ford, eight, with his former girlfriend Jade Duell and had a second son Finn, five, with his fitness trainer Caroline Lindqvist. It has been reported that the two have struck up a romance again in recent months.
Wilson is currently filming a new movie 'Marry Me' alongside Jennifer Lopez.
