Roseanne Barr

Ex Says She's Worth $42 MIL

Demands Lawyers' Fees

11/15/2011 1:38 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Roseanne Barr
's ex-husband is demanding $75,000 for attorneys' fees, and another $100,000 for dragging him through a child custody battle -- and he claims that's a tiny fraction of her $42 MILLION fortune.

Ben Thomas filed legal docs today demanding that massive amount of money ... in the wake of their extended custody battle over their teenage son, Buck. The exes reached a settlement back in August -- but Thomas claims Roseanne's efforts to strip him of custody were only motivated by revenge ... hence the demand for $100K.

In the document, Thomas points out the $100,000 is a mere .002% of Roseanne's net worth of $42 million.

By the way, Thomas claims he earns $7,305 monthly ... compared to Roseanne's $211,667 per month.

Since she is a 1 percenter, she should give all of her money to me. Besides, he should be happy to be rid of her.

He should get all he can women have been ripping us guys off for so long. When the woman is the richer of the two they expect to be treated differently. Same old double standard. Too bad they didn't divorce in California he would have gotten half of what she ws worth if they didn't have a pre-nup.

"In the do***ent, Thomas points out the $100,000 is a mere .002% of Roseanne's net worth of $42 million." It's a shame they don't teach math anymore, or someone might have reaoized that 0.002% of $42 million is actually $840, not $100,000. It is 0.24 percent. But I don't expect the snarky kids from TMZ to understand such basic arithmetic concepts as decimals or percentages.

I'm sure Roseanne's ex was given a sizable settlement. Sounds as if he frittered the money away, dufus! Roseanne doesn't owe him a dime. Nice try fella.

And she is running for President as a communist?
Seems there is a bit of hypocrisy for Roseanne.
Or is it that she is "superior" to we mere peons and thus entitled to make more money and own more things.
And yet, the liberals never have a problem with wealth when it comes to their own wealth.

Since it appears she is in the 1% category then she needs to hand it all over to him. Really, isn't that what the hollywood crowd is crying about "spread the wealth" common Roseanne just write that check, you'll feel better in the end.
