Even though Brendan Fraser makes $231K monthly, he’s in the hole $87K per month.

Last month we learned that Brendan Fraser was going broke over his $900,00 a year alimony and child support payments. He went before a judge and tried to have it reduced, claiming he no longer earns the kind of money he used to – and can’t afford $900,000 a year. Fraser and his wife divorced in 2009 and have three sons together, ages 6, 8 and 10.

I’m sorry – but $900,000 A YEAR!? His wife gets to sit back and collect nearly a million dollars a year!? I’m in the wrong business. I need to impregnate myself with someone rich. I mean I understand completely a wife getting what she deserves, and I’m sure she supported him throughout his career. But you’re trying to tell me it takes a million dollars a year to keep that family going? It sort of makes me crazy, not gonna lie.

I’m sure that at one point Brendan could totally afford to pay her nearly a million per year, but lately he hasn’t had the greatest movies. According to IMDB he does have some movies in the works – but certainly won’t bring him back to where he was …. say 5 years ago.

TMZ got their hands on Brendan’s financials, and by the looks of it, he’s right – he can’t afford that kind of alimony and child support.

Fraser filed docs in Connecticut recently as part of an ongoing battle with his ex-wife to lower his alimony payments, which currently sit at $50,000/month. To prove his financial situation ain’t what it used to be, Fraser listed his monthly income and expenses …. and it’s not pretty.

According to Fraser, he makes about $205,704.04/month, but $112,803.25 goes to professional expenses — DAMN YOU, AGENTS!!! — leaving him with $92,900.79.

Fraser says he makes another $25,800.28 from interest and other financial things rich people get … and then the expenses kick in, including …

Alimony — $50,000
Mortgages — $5,000+
Property tax — $6,000+
Income tax — $34,132.52
Child support — $25,000
Gardening — $5,200
Various insurances — $5,000+
Family support and gifts — $5,000+
Staffing — $3,000
Pet care — $7.77 (Does he have a goldfish?)
And it goes on and on …

All told, Fraser’s expenses have him losing $87,320.01/month. But Fraser’s assets reportedly total just a shade under $25 million … so we think he’ll be fine.

What do you think? Do you sympathize with Brendan’s financial woes?

Brendan Fraser Sued For Battering Movie Producer

Brendan Fraser is said to have attacked a producer twice, after being set to star in the producer’s film!

Producer Todd Moyer, heading production of the film “The Legend of William Tell,” claims Fraser was hanging out at the Hilton Hotel in Indianapolis on July 27, clearly very drunk. Fraser then began to “physically push, verbally threaten and poke [Moyer] in the chest repeatedly.” The claims or quotations don’t specify what specifically led to this “assault.”

Six months later, Moyer says Fraser struck again, but back in Los Angeles, and during a meeting about the movie at the offices of Brillstein Entertainment Partners.  Moyer’s people say that Fraser demanded Moyer hire a producer named Charlotte Huggins to work on the film, but Moyer refused.  Then, Fraser went nuts: screaming threats and striking Moyer in the chest at least 20 times.

Moyer said he suffered extreme mental anguish and physical pain and wants at least $25k in damages.

Another interesting tidbit? Fraser actually sued Moyer FIRST!  In May, Fraser sued Moyer, claiming he was ruining “Tell” and causing delays that forced Fraser to pass up other acting work. Fraser is demanding more than $3 million in damages.

Sounds a little childish to me- a couple pokes and some delays are, in my opinion, not grounds to sue anyone!

Brendan Fraser On His New Role: “I’d Come Home And Hug My Boys A Little Tighter”


Brendan Fraser has fought off mummies and survived an adventure to the center of the earth in 3-D, action-packed blockbusters. Now, he’s taking on the real-life role of John Crowley, a man who fought to save his young children from a terminal disease in Extraordinary Measures. Fraser, who is father to three boys – Griffin, 7, Holden, 5, and Leland, 3 – opened up to Parade about becoming emotionally involved in the true story, and being inspired by the heroic Crowley family.

On realizing he is very blessed:
“My three sons are very healthy. John Crowley had two kids who certainly would not have lived past the age of four or six if it were not for his efforts to save their lives. So maybe, while doing the movie, I’d come home and hug my boys a little tighter. But I always hug and kiss them whether they like it or not. I’m like, ‘Come here, you,’ and you blow raspberries on them. That’s what I do.”

On doing anything for his kids:
“It makes my heart stop beating for a moment to think it were true that my children might be in any kind of jeopardy. I mean, it really frightens me. Of course, I would do whatever it takes to save them. What parent wouldn’t? I’d throw myself in front of a train if I had to for their well being. That doesn’t mean you can protect them from everything, but you have to try. Harrison came up with an enduring line which his character says in this film, ‘Don’t hope for a miracle, make one,’ and that’s exactly what my character John Crowley did.”
