Math is hard, okay.
Double-digit multiplication? Get outta town. Logarithms? Throw those squiggles in the too-hard basket where they belong. Budget? What's that?
Celebrities, it would seem, aren’t immune to these struggles.
Los Angeles judge, Lawrence Riff has slammed former Spice Girl Mel B and estranged husband Stephen Belafonte for “living beyond their means”.
How far you ask? Court documents reveal the singer spends more than $9,000 a month on groceries and dining out plus $1,300 on entertainment expenses (movies, theme parks etc.)

It gets worse.
Belafonte has sought temporary spousal support in court, claiming he spends $2,300 a month on “groceries and household supplies”, $750 on his mobile phone (that $10 for an extra 1GB can add up), $2,000 in clothes and $3,000 on “entertainment, gifts and vacation”.
Mel B has shot down these expenditures, claiming they’re “exorbitant”.
Nevertheless, the same L.A. judge has ordered Mel B to pay Belafonte $40,000 a month in spousal support adding that the pair should have kept their living expenses capped to $51,000 a month.
“This is at substantial variance with both parties’ income and expense declarations, that is, both parties claim far more in monthly expenses,” the judge wrote.
