The children want the court to order their 78-year-old father to pay $400,000 a month per child because they claim that they child support they received was not enough.

The father paid $10,000 a month for each child when they were younger which paid for tutors, trips and nannies and he stated that he is still willing to pay for college for both of the children.

The mother of the children was never married to their father and never attempted to get child support. The father is ranked number 16 of the 400 richest Americans by Forbes magazine.
