Brian Grazer's Got a Lot of Gs to Deal With

10/13/2008 2:53 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

The curtains have been pulled back on mega-producer Brian Grazer's divorce battle -- and let's just say working with Opie sure does pay.

According to docs filed by estranged wife Gigi's accountant, Grazer's cash haul per year is $28 million, 13 mil of which came from just his production co. salary. The rest comes from "corporate distributions ... perquisites ... as well as interest and dividend income." That's a lotta skinny black ties.

Gigi is asking for nearly a million per month in child and spousal support ($988,184), including a grand per month for "furniture and appliance replacement" at their Hawaii house. She spends $7K for "fine art" every month ... just for their San Remo pad. But here's the good news for Brian -- she's only asking for $42 a month to clean the New York pad.

BTW: Who knew there was a computer program called DissoMaster to chop up marital assets? Brilliant.

Considering that you're an attorney, Harvey, and considering that DissoMaster is a common program used in divorce, YOU should know.

This woman is a gold digger. I guess he did not have a contract before the marriage. She should only get child support. Nothing else.

28 minus 13 = 15 million from old school. So 13 million divided by 2 = 6.5 million that Gigi gets.

13 million is a going concern, and Gigi should get half of that up front times the number of years she was married to Brian. The revenues for each year for the production company divided by 2.

Struggling screenwriters don't really have a chance to sell anything to film studios, because Brian hogs up there speculation money with his crap. - Divorce Hollywood, to the same old overpaid producers that dragging down viewers on television, and film by protesting TV shows, and boycotting going to the movies.

The sag strike did not hurt Brian Grazer. If fact the studios paid Brian more, so they could push their junk through the media. – We need more bravo type channels that can produce invocative programming and not more junk from Brian.

Why are they writing about this instead about Grazer "dating" a hooker? Much more scandalous!

LOL, Brian Grazer being used. How ignorant can one be to even consider that?! The amount is the court guideline calculation - DissoMaster is what the courts have been using for 20+ years in CA to figure out support amounts.
Grazer, you really should stop slipping stuff to the media when at least one of your kids is old enough to cruise the net -- and all his friends and their parents. Shame on you. Ah well, I'm sure the judge will love this -- NOT.

YUCK    

So, he makes $26 Million a year. After taxes (based on a 40% tax braket), that leaves him with ~ $15.6 million net. And his soon to be ex-bitch wants $12 Million from him per year, net? Doesn't seem right. Yeah, he still gets $3.6 million, but she's getting the huge lions share of his money. Just ain't right, regardless of who did what...

Gigi Grazer is awesome. Brian Grazer is a mega-douche who was banging an Asian prostitute on the side. She should take it all--she deserves it.

Men like these need to be hit where it really hurts them--their pocketbook.

Brian is still banging (well, if he can get it up) an Asian prostitute.

Gigi's book "Maneater" was the worst published novel that I have ever read. Nothing but trash. If Debra Messing wasn't the star of "The Starter Wife" I wouldn't watch that either. She has her own income therefore she should only receive child support.
