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.

And what you talking about Willis - I mean Brenda? Maneater had some serious laugh out loud moments! I think it's being made into a TV show as well.

$42 a month to clean a NYC apartment? My apartment is probably the size of one of their closets and it costs me $70 every other week. Where do I sign up???!!!??

gigi is a whore, and nothing more than a talentless gold digger of a wife... she should be paying him for the privilege of living in that style for the years they were married. go back to the trailer park gigi..... that's where you're from....

Dissomaster is used to calculate spousal and child support. Has nothing to do with dividing up the assests. There are numerous variables and nuances when dividing up assets. It is oftentimes not as simple as dividing by two.

Clueless brainiacs -- the story is false, check out defamer. The Grazer's don't have a NY home and the Hawaii home is only Brian's. You must be getting paid by Brian, because no one in their right mind would side with him otherwise. Or you're just really really really dumb.

Nothing But The Facts    

I find it appalling to read the smear campaign directed at Brian Grazer's girlfriend, Chosan Nguyen. I have know Chosan for several years, long before she met Brian Grazer. In fact, I was there the day Chosan met Brian at a charity event in NYC - when I witnessed 'kismet' - which was delightful to see.

Chosan is a beautiful, extremely talented concert pianist, as well as a composer and painter. She has appeared at Steinway Hall in NYC, and in a most recent Disney Hall concert in Los Angeles. Chosan is a superbly gifted woman, with a spiritual soul to match her creative abilities. Through her philanthropic works, she has established a school in Viet Nam, her home country, for musically gifted indigent children.

When Chosan and Brian met, they were both separated from their former spouses. They were 'free' to fall in love - which they did - and they have been happily together ever since, side by side. The libelous comments appearing in these columns can only be attributable to sources who are jealous that two people have found true happiness together.

it's not jealousy. it's just disdain for a person who churns out 2 star film after 2 star film. He typifies the dollar over art mentality of filmmaking. not one of his endless stream of films have left an indelible mark on film history. beautiful mind was an empty middling film. hopefully he will have enough fun with his new vietnamese girlfriend to quit producing films and emigrate there.
