Brendan Fraser Divorce

Brendan Fraser Divorce
When we talk about ugly divorces and their unwanted repercussions, Brendan Fraser’s Divorce is the one which tops the list. Getting a divorce after nine years of marriage, Continuous selections of bad roles, a huge amount of alimony and child support with other tragedies caused Brendan a huge downfall in his career and on his mental health.

Fraser was married to actress Afton smith for nine years. The ex couple met while attending a barbecue at Winona Ryder’s house on July 4, 1993. The pair married on September 27, 1998, and had three sons: Griffin Arthur Fraser (born 2002), Holden Fletcher Fraser (born 2004), and Leland Francis Fraser (born 2006). Unfortunately for a reason unknown the Marriage crumbled and in December 2007, Fraser’s publicist announced that the couple had decided to divorce.

After the divorce Brendan Fraser found himself in hot water with his ex-wife after he filed documents in Connecticut in February, asking the court to lower his $900,000 monthly alimony and child support payments because he wasn't getting enough acting jobs to come up with the cash. Afton hit back shortly after Brendan’s plea made the news and claimed that he was hiding his money and more than capable to continue his payments. She insisted Brendan's net worth of $25 million also justifies the financial support payments - especially since his earnings haven't yet fallen below $3 million a year which he strongly denied, insisting a number of 'medical issues’ affecting his earnings.

Well, as of now apparently Brendan is still paying as much alimony as he always has. It seems doubtful that he has a good relationship to Afton, however. At least we hope he has a good one with his children.
