Amanda Stanton is enjoying a lucrative income following her recent stints on The Bachelor and Bachelor in Paradise. According to TMZ, Stanton and her fiancé, Josh Murray, bring in a whopping $23,000 a month in combined income, thanks, in part, to endorsement opportunities they’ve received since the summertime reality show they starred in together wrapped earlier this year.
TMZ got a peek at the financial information Amanda shared as part of her custody battle with ex-husband Nick Buonfiglio, and in the court documents, the mom of two revealed that she makes more than $13,000 a month from social media and her fashion blog. Stanton also listed live-in love Josh Murray’s monthly income at $10,000. The court papers reveal that Amanda allows herself a healthy clothing budget, which comes in at $2,000 per month.
Murray moved from Atlanta to Irvine, California to live with Stanton and her two daughters, Kinsley and Charlie, shortly after getting engaged to the blonde beauty on Bachelor in Paradise. Since that time, Josh and Amanda’s income has skyrocketed thanks to increased endorsement deals they’ve signed. Amanda regularly posts social media snaps which show her, Josh, and her kids promoting everything from sunglasses to organic facial masks.
In addition, Amanda’s fashion blog is full of shopping-related posts which direct readers to affiliate sites. And with all that extra cash flow, Amanda and her man have also been house hunting, according to Daily Mail. But Stanton’s increased income has also caused her ex-husband to file court documents requesting a change in his child support payments and more time with their two daughters.
Amanda Stanton’s divorce from Nick Buonfiglio was final in June 2015, just a few months before she signed on to Ben Higgins’ season of The Bachelor. Now that Stanton is raking in the big bucks with two reality TV gigs under her belt, Amanda’s ex-husband told Us Weekly that he wants to cut financial ties with her for good and have a 50/50 child custody arrangement for their daughters.
“I’ve paid her way long enough — she makes plenty to support herself,” Buonfiglio said of Stanton. “I just want her to pay her way, I pay my way, and we co-parent.”
TMZ previously reported that Amanda claimed an income of a meager $100 in 2015 before hitting pay dirt with The Bachelor and Bachelor in Paradise this year. In September, her ex-husband filed court documents requesting more time with his kids, and he called out Stanton for putting their two daughters in full-time daycare while she is busy working on reality TV.
According to paperwork obtained by Radar Online, Amanda Stanton’s angry ex-husband filed bombshell court docs just four days before her engagement to Murray played out on TV. In the papers, Buonfiglio slammed Stanton for going on “multiple TV shows,” claiming that it put their daughters “in tons of media attention, which I believe is causing harm.” Buonfiglio also revealed that Amanda is now making “well over $20,000 to $30,000 per month,” including $5,000 per sponsored social media post.
Amanda and Nick’s original custody agreement had him giving her $2,000 per month in child support, based on the fact that she is supposed to have their daughters with her 65 percent of the time. But Buonfiglio had his daughters for nearly three weeks straight while Stanton went off to Mexico to film Bachelor in Paradise earlier this year.
“I am having trouble living giving $2,000 a month,” Nick said at the time. “And the time I have with the kids has increased to almost 50/50.”
