Brendan Fraser

I'm Losing

$87,000 a Month!!!

3/4/2013 5:30 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

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?

I feel bad for him because he is such a nice guy. Did he get hurt really bad a few times whlle filming the Mummy movies? I think thats why its has been hard for him to work because he has permenent damage due to said injuries. Even so he sounds like he still wants to take care of his family and exwife only have his payments reduced. Didnt she resently write a successful book for autisic children? Did Brendan see any of those profits? It sounds like he has been taken by the people surrounging him. Such an old Hollywood pitfall! I hope he will come out of this ok and make more movies i really like him. He such a nice person

You know, I never really understood the ridiculous amounts Celebs, or practically anybody with a high paying career have to pay in alimony and child support. It does not cost $75,000 to support a family, and child support. Brendan Frasier needs to get that lowered.

On the flipside of that, Mr. Frasier might want to think about selling his house or property. He may lose money, but that would cut out the property/income taxes, gardening, insurance, and other various expenses..

Brandon needs to down size his life style. Put yourself on a budget. Stop complaining about you don't have. Be a role model, lead by example, show your boys how to be real and humble good with the bad. I think famous people lose their way once they become famous. Be the smart one and find your y back to real life. Be humble, conservative and be true. And, the ex-wife ; well shame on you for being so greedy what kind of character being are you teaching your boys. You should also learn how to be conservative with your life style it doesn't take 57,000 or what ever you get to take care of a household with 4 people. You all need a reality check, get back to basics. Be humble and decent....... I wish everyone could have a smidge of what you have, the world might be a better place . Peace out, be humble, kind to each other and for goodness sake conserve.

Learn how to budget your life style. Average people do it all the time. That's life ! Stop complaining about what you don't have. Spoiled actors (gimme , gimme , gimme ) Down size, live moderately, lead by example.
