Brendan Fraser: Broke! Fighting Afton Smith Child Support Payments!

by at . Comments

Once a huge box office draw (for reasons unknown), Brendan Fraser is now close to broke and fighting to reduce his huge alimony and child support payments.

Brendan Fraser, Afton Smith

Currently starring in the animated movie Escape from Planet Earth, Fraser owes $900,000 A YEAR to Afton Smith ... and says he can't pay close to that.

The actor settled his divorce with her in 2009, but insists he can’t cover the costs he initially agreed to because he’s no longer earning that kind of cash.

Fraser says that recent setbacks have left him almost "broke."

According to the New York Post, Afton Smith isn't buying it.

She claims that Brendan is hiding money from her, despite “medical issues” that he cited as another reason for why his career has been in free fall.

The duo was married for nearly 10 years and has three children together, sons, Griffin, 10, Holden, 8, and Leland, 6. Here's hoping they work it out.

The 44-year-old Fraser is also locked in a separate court battle with producer Todd Moyer, who is suing him for an alleged physical attack last year.


Man I wish I could get 30 grand a year. This. Is ridiculous. My husband is taking care of my son and I off 10 bucks an hour. I would never take that much money from my husband if we divorced. He has to live too. Maybe the bitch should find some other rich guy to mooch off of so the alimony would be nulled.


I have loved Brendan Fraser since his Encino Man, Airheads, George of the Jungle, School Ties, With Honors days....and I think his versatilityas an actor is what makes him such a big box office movie he will have the audience laughing & the next movie move them to tears & the next one have them cheering him on as the hero who saves the day & keeps the mummies away!! I feel for him & would love to see him challenge for custody of his sons...always felt like she married him for the money & status anyway!! Best of luck to him!!


Its cheaper to keep her!!! The judge needs to grow a pair, & tell this momma to wake up, put on her big girl panties and GET A JOB!! her false sense of entitlement is disturbing!
men, let this be a warning.... get prenuptial agreements!!! & if the judge doesnt do HIS job than Brendan should get custody of his boys!!!
I raised my son on my own, I could have gone to court, I chose to take the high road, he was gone, & that was more than good enough for us. making a man pay beyond his means, only creates more animosity & hate... neither are good for any child!!!


Well of course the woman is "doubting it". She's getting almost a million a year and he's seeking to take it away from her. Money-grab.


"...for reasons unknown"? Well, I don't know him personally, but on screen he comes across as a nice guy who actually likes women. He was charming in the M movies and charming and silly in George, and that's a welcome break from all the boring macho predators, who are a dime a dozen.


........being married in america is FUN?
