Todd Bridges

I Make LESS Than

$25k Per Year

6/8/2013 5:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0607_todd_bridges_Article_tmzTodd Bridges is not a wealthy man ... this according to Todd Bridges.

The former "Diff'rent Strokes" actor just filed new docs in his divorce from longtime wife Dori Bridges, stating that he only makes a grand total of $22,500 per year from his career as an actor ... and that's BEFORE TAXES.

It's a bit of a problem for Bridges ... who, in the docs, claims he spends roughly $4,306 per month ... including a $1,520 monthly mortgage payment.

Todd says Dori was making $1,750 per month ... but combined with Todd's income, it still wasn't enough to cover their average monthly spending

It appears the beef is over how much child support Todd will have to ante up.

Todd announced his split from Dori last year -- but insists the two remain good friends. They have 1 kid together.

So I guess The Smoking Gun doesn't pay much at all, not even Sag Scale?

A job would help. Wasn't Gary Coleman a security guard or something? Most of us cant live off of our job from 25 years ago.

It looks like after Todd's money is gone, so did his marriage.

He wrote an amazing autobiography about how he went from child star who was molested by an agent, to major drug dealer to Christian. I wonder if he gets money from that book. Maybe he should try to write some more books about his life. He is an interesting person. He is the last survivor of the three Different Strokes kids.

Well I guess Todd isn't good at math because if he spends $4,306 a month then that's $51,672 a year.
