Keith and his wife Kelly separated last year and earlier this week, Kelly was denied a bid for $150,000 in monthly spousal support by the British Columbia Supreme Court.

Via The Vancouver Sun:

The wife of National Hockey League star Duncan Keith has lost an interim bid in B.C. Supreme Court to get her husband to pay $150,000 per month in spousal support. Kelly Keith had sought the huge interim payout, along with $69,270 per month in child support, claiming she had suffered economic hardship and disadvantages arising from the couple’s marriage breakdown in June 2014. Duncan argued that Kelly should receive $15,000 in spousal support and $10,000 for their son.

Keith had been paying $10,000 per month in child support in addition to another $10,000 monthly for the mortgage and expenses related to the couple’s home in Canada where Kelly lives with the couple’s two-year-old son Colton.

British Columbia Supreme Court Justice George MacIntosh ruled that Kelly’s $150,000 per month request was “disproportionately high” and ordered Keith to pay Kelly $45,000 per month in spousal support and $15,000 per month in child support.
