Celebrity Wife Wants Five Different Types Of Alimony In Florida


Fans of the show The Challenge may be familiar with CT Tamburello, who has won the reality competition a record five times. His winning days seem to be limited to his reality TV persona, however, and off-screen the man is struggling with a difficult divorce. Among the many challenges CT is currently facing is the fact that his wife is asking for five different types of alimony – plus a range of other demands that will likely affect Tamburello’s fortune and his standard of living.

What CT’s Wife is Demanding 

CT is the one who filed for divorce, and since that day the two spouses have continued to live under the same roof in what the wife calls a “tense and hostile environment.” Because of this, she is requesting that the judge grant her exclusive possession of the marital home. She has filed an emergency motion to make this happen. In addition, she wants exclusive use of their family vehicle. The wife has also requested to remain a beneficiary on CT’s life insurance policy plus five different types of alimony.

What are the Five Different Types of Alimony? 

So what exactly are these five different types of alimony? Let’s go through them all:

  • Rehabilitative Alimony: As the name suggests, this type of alimony is intended to rehabilitate spouses – allowing them to get back on their feet and receive job training. This alimony is specifically designed to help spouses re-enter the workforce with new, relevant skills.
  • Bridge and Gap Alimony: Bridge and gap alimony is another type of alimony that is intended to smooth the transition from married life to single life. This type of alimony is temporary in nature and is usually quite minimal.
  • Durational Alimony: Durational alimony is the type of alimony most people picture. This form of spousal support continues for a set period of time based on the length of the marriage. Since this particular marriage lasted for four years, CT’s wife wants her durational alimony to last for four years also.
  • Temporary Alimony: Temporary alimony provides spouses with a degree of income during the divorce proceedings, and CT’s wife also believes she is entitled to this type of alimony.
  • Lump Sum Alimony: Finally, she has requested “lump sum” alimony, which is a set amount of funds that is provided at one particular time rather than spread out between monthly payments.

It is unlikely that she will receive all of these various forms of alimony. It is up to the court’s discretion to determine what seems fair.
