Mena Suvari's ex wants her to pay up.

According to TMZ, Suvari's ex-husband, Simone Sestito, has filed court docs requesting $17,000 a month in spousal support.

Elsewhere in the docs, Sestito -- a concert promoter -- reportedly alleges that "American Reunion" actress makes $750,000 a year and says he's used to eating out "almost everyday at high end restaurants," listing his estimated monthly dining expenses at $3,000 a month.

Suvari, 33, filed to divorce Sestito in January 2012 after 18 months of marriage, citing "irreconcilable differences." Suvari has sought to deny her ex spousal support, TMZ reported.

The "American Beauty" actress' first marriage to Robert Brinkmann, a cinematographer 17 years her senior, ended in 2005 after five years of marriage. In an interview with the Daily Mail last month, Suvari opened up about her two failed marriages: "Honestly, I never thought that at 33 I’d be a two-time divorcee. But OK, if that’s the path my life is going down, then I accept it."
