This is double the amount that the singer-songwriter, 45, had been paying. The judge made the decision after Torres claimed that the $13,000 a month that she was receiving from Anthony was not enough and requested the amount be raised to more than $100,000.

According to the papers, Anthony has been making more than $600,000 per month this year.

Anthony and Torres share two sons together -- Cristian, 13, and Ryan, 9.
