It sounds like you have tried talking about this. When that is the case you may try a few sessions with a professional. Because this is not a huge problem such as cheating although serious for you I would suggest trying online therapy. You can participate together in your living room and you would have structured times just like a couples counseling. Work this out as a couple rather than struggling by yourself. you can Google etherapy or ecounseling. This could become huge issue because it includes both money issue and contact with the ex. This may be more than money. If you don't put boundaries on this it could become a huge obstacle for you as a couple. I would also explore journaling to record what you think is the monetary limit on this problem and share them first. Everything is about compromise
