Default Brendan Fraser Is Going Broke

Quote:
Brendan Fraser was once riding high on the hog with big salaries for the Mummy movies and, one hopes, Monkeybone, those days appear to be over. The actor has filed papers in Connecticut requesting that his alimony payments be reduced, as he's now spending more money per month than he's taking in. Currently he pays his ex-wife some $50,000 a month in alimony, which is more than some people, OK lots of people, make in a year. On top of that he's got mortgages and taxes and of course staffing fees and the $7.77 he spends on pet care (that's in there), and all told he says he is losing $87,000 a month. That's over a million dollars a year and it cannot stand. Sure he's got projects like The Nut Job and HairBrained coming up, but they're not going to fully cover all the massive bills. Something's gotta give, and that something is alimony. Otherwise he'll soon be completely broke and then nobody gets anything
Quote:
Fraser is seeking to have his alimony payments reduced and claims that he is no longer earning the mega-millions that came at the height of his fame. In the same court documents, Fraser listed his assets at $25 million and his monthly income at $205,704. He also earns an additional $26,000 from investment income and has to pay $113,000 in "professional expenses" (lawyers, managers, agents). That leaves the Encino man with roughly $118,000 in monthly income before expenses. Fraser's monthly expenses include $50,000 alimony, $34,000 income taxes, $25,000 child support, $6000 property taxes, $5200 gardening, $5000 insurance, $5000 family support, $5000 mortgages… In total his expenses outweigh his monthly income by $87,000. Fraser is currently behind on his monthly bills and owes $87,320.01
Brendan Fraser needs a new attorney $50,000.00 a month is crazy.

I know his got three kids with his ex-wife but damn. Fraser should cut back ($5200 gardening). Fraser should perhaps think about selling a house or downsize and his ex should consider going back to work or slightly lowering her living standards a little well.

I'd say it's time for him to crawl back to the studios for a new Journey "to somewhere" movie.

$50,000 for alimony, plus $25,000 for child support a month... First, this much money is insane. Second, why is she getting more than the kids??

This guy really needs to reconsider his expenses.

$113,000 in "professional expenses" (lawyers, managers, agents). $6000 property taxes, $5200 gardening, $5000 insurance, $5000 family support, $5000 mortgages

This is far too much money to be shelling out a month. Its time he considered downsizing and yes doing is own bloody gardening. Come on!!

The alimony and child support payments are ridiculous too, life doesn't need to cost that much.

The problem is that while his own income has been decreasing, his expenses have not. He should hire a financial adviser (one who doesn't cost $5000 a month) and start firing his lawyers and gardeners, and sell any extra houses he has. And the alimony and child support expenses are also ridiculous, and need to come down. Oh, and he should make movies like Mummy 4 and George of the Jungle 3 to start making some dough, or a TV show for steady income. The bottom line is, it's time for him to clean house and face reality.

Len Wiseman is rebooting The Mummy franchise so Fraser is out of luck there.
