The Love After Lockup star Brittany is in trouble. Not like being in trouble is an uncommon instance for the contestants of this show, but the situations she is facing are extremely overwhelming financially as well.
In the recent episode, Marcelino and Brittany visit their attorney Chris to find out whether it is possible to track her two children she had in her teenage years. The CPS took them and placed them for adoption. The State took away the children from her, and she was open about how difficult this process was going to be.
Love After Lockup: Marcelino Opens Up About The Upcoming Struggles
Tracking down kids given away for adoption will be a time-consuming process. Not to mention, financially draining. They have got a massive bill from the lawyer. The couple has another baby on the way. And as far as poker is concerned, things haven’t been great for Marcelino.
According to Starcasm, this process might take years before they can see any progress happening. Chris Ford and his law firm Ford & Friedman recently filed a lien against Brittany. She is late for her legal fees and the amount due is more than $20,000.
TLC paid them about $3,000 for each episode which is likely to have raised in the second season. The same goes for her So. Their combined income accounts for $60,000 for the present season if we do the math. And we also know that TLC pays the cast after completing the editing process. Even though we can’t be sure of this, but it is likely that the cast has got the amount till now.
Love After Lockup: Marcelino and Brittany In a Financial mess
The couple already has a child. The expenses can be pretty tough. Moreover, another baby is on the way. On top of that, $20K legal fee hanging over the head definitely contributes to a lot of stress.
If the show is the only source of income for the couple, then it certainly doesn’t look good for them as far as the finances are concerned.
She also doesn’t receive any more than $700 as child support for her son Giovanni. Speaking of him, Brittany and her beau Marcelino got his custody after defeating his biological dad. Tito, his father, failed a drug test which resulted in Brittany being victorious in the custody case.
