'CSI' Star Jon Wellner's Wife Is Flat Broke … Needs Money ASAP in Divorce

1005-jon-wellner-whitney-wellner-TWITTER-01CSI” star Jon Wellner‘s estranged wife is desperate for money, claiming he’s completely cut her off from their cash and credit cards … leaving her with only $ 70 to her name. 

According to new legal docs obtained by TMZ … Whitney Wellner is asking for emergency spousal support because she can’t make ends meet after losing her job at a dog rescue … where she made $ 11 an hour. 

Whitney says Jon makes a fortune — nearly $ 114k per year in acting residuals alone — and she wants a piece. Worth nothing, Wellner appeared on 126 episodes of “CSI” over 10 years.

But Jon says Whitney’s way off base, because he took a “huge loss of income” when “CSI” went off the air. He says he’s now only working on random projects.  

TMZ broke the story … Jon wanted Whitney to get a “real” job at the time of their divorce — saying she was a lousy actress.
