Brendan Fraser

I'm Losing

$87,000 a Month!!!

EXCLUSIVE

0301-brandon-fraser-gettyBrendan Fraser needs USA to start airing "Encino Man" more often ... because his expenses outweigh his income by so much ... he's in the red each month to the tune of $87,320.01 ... TMZ has learned.

Fraser filed docs in Connecticut recently as part of an ongoing battle with his ex-wife to lower his alimony payments, which currently sit at $50,000/month. To prove his financial situation ain't what it used to be, Fraser listed his monthly income and expenses .... and it's not pretty.

According to Fraser, he makes about $205,704.04/month, but $112,803.25 goes to professional expenses -- DAMN YOU, AGENTS!!! -- leaving him with $92,900.79. 

Fraser says he makes another $25,800.28 from interest and other financial things rich people get ... and then the expenses kick in, including ... 

Alimony -- $50,000 
Mortgages -- $5,000+
Property tax -- $6,000+
Income tax -- $34,132.52
Child support -- $25,000
Gardening -- $5,200
Various insurances -- $5,000+
Family support and gifts -- $5,000+
Staffing -- $3,000
Pet care -- $7.77 (Does he have a goldfish?)
And it goes on and on ...

All told, Fraser's expenses have him losing $87,320.01/month. But Fraser's assets reportedly total just a shade under $25 million ... so we think he'll be fine.

But just in case, rent "Monkeybone" this weekend. Help a guy out, will ya?

Why do celebrities even have mortgages, credit cards etc? If I made a few million a year, I sure as hell wouldn't be flushing money down the toilet every year on interest.

There's a lot wrong here - when you haven't done anything big in 10 yrs, and you haven't invested wisely, you should probably get rid of things like gardening and multiple mortgages. Apparently, all those professional expenses aren't doing much for him, either. The ex-wife should also get a clue. And he lost what looks he had along with his hair, so he's likely only a character actor now, unless someone like Tarantino wants to dig him up in 15 yrs (Travolta, anyone?).

I like Brendan but I don't feel sorry for him or any "celebrity" that won't live a reasonable life within their means and that means future means and not just right after they score a big deal and then don't do anything and then complain they don't have money. More celebs should be like Bill Murray and dump all these worthless money grubbing managers and crap and actually do some of this work themselves instead of letting others take so much money for doing so little or nothing for them.

Cut back nimrod, and remember the prenup lesson. What I never get is why these people don't go to court to get their alimony and child support reduced as soon as their income drops severely.
And the people bitching about the wife's alimony would most likely take the same deal in a heartbeat, it's a sweet deal.

Anyone who pays 6,000/month in property tax is a fool! 72,000/ yr. Pfft.

His money making ability is pretty much down the crapper so yeah, I think his income should honestly be reevaluated, starting with replacing the gardener with a riding lawn mower for Brendan and a rake for his flower gardens. His wife can get a job just like other wives have to do.

He should follow Dave Ramsay. Maybe listening to his show would sort him out.
