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?

It's called a recession and EVERYONE is cutting back. Do you REALLY pay over 5 grand a month on insurance? And since you are not doing anything, why don't you do your own gardening? What's this crap about "family support and gifts" Our family knows that the gifts are things we can afford, nothing that requires a loan. Grow up, dude.

7.77 cents for pet care?! cripes our beardies cost more than that in a month in crickets alone. i put out well over 250.00 a month for all of our pets. (ferrets, cats, lizards, fish) so he must have a guppy or goldfish...possibly a turtle or a pet rock.

I Have a way out of this, School Ties 2! Brendon returns as the head coach after a 4 year career in the NFL. Leonardo Dicarprio is the head coach of a rival high school but his son plays for Brendon Fraser's team. Throw in Vanessa Hudgen's as the the girl who dates him and is from the wrong side of the tracks. This movie will be another Footloose! I'm talking the 84 original not the crappy remake. My working title is Shool Ties 2, a Coache's Son. This has blockbuster written all over it and will get Fraser back on top! I'm calling my agent

Have his family mow his lawn and he'll save $5K a month. And $3K for "staffing"? How about making your own phone calls? Further, his ex-squeeze is gonna look closely at his "professional expenses" which, no doubt, include travel & meals. Brendon ("I'm fat now") Fraser had better learn to economize because he doesn't look like he'll get too many more action/romantic lead roles. Of course, his experience is shared by just about every brotha in the NBA who sprays seed everywhere and can't stay married.

No wonder the average married guy is SCARED $HITLESS ! Alimony, Child Support, Lawyers Fees, Marital Distribution, Loss of Home, Best Friend Bangin Ex-Wife, Kids see Best Friend more than they see you, etc et al. Something to look forward to IF you're married!

Better to find someone you HATE and just buy em a house. Cheaper!

Move to Texas..no state income tax...mortgages are MUCH lower, I probably have the same size house for 1/2 the mortgage (I have relatives in CT..well aware of how expensive it is...I call it Connafornia..the east Coast California)..get rid of the staff, sell the house..simplify...
