Roseanne Barr is being forced to make a $40,000 payment to her ex-husband -- mostly for his attorney's fees in their nasty child custody war.
Ben Thomas had actually demanded $100,000 from Roseanne -- purely as punishment for dragging him through the custody battle ... which they settled back in August. Yesterday, the court bumped that down to a paltry $5,000.
However, Roseanne was ordered to pay $35,000 for Ben's lawyers.
