Brendan Fraser's Ex-Wife

He's Lying

He Can Swing $50k/Month

Filthy rich Brendan Fraser can easily afford to pay his ex-wife $50,000 per month in alimony ... despite his whining ... so says Brendan's ex-wife.

TMZ broke the story ... Fraser filed legal docs in Connecticut earlier this year, asking the court to lower his $50,000-a-month alimony payment because he couldn't afford it anymore.

Fraser said he was in the red roughly $87,000 every month -- mostly because he wasn't booking new acting jobs.

But Brendan's ex Afton Fraser is firing back her own legal docs ... claiming Brendan's raking in tons of cheese from several recent films like "Extraordinary Measure" and "Furry Vengeance" (instant classics).

She also says Brendan's reported net worth -- $25 million -- is justification alone to keep the alimony order in place.

FYI, there's a provision in Brendan and Afton's divorce agreement that will allow for a reduction in alimony payments, but only if Brandon earns less than $3 million a year.

Afton says that hasn't happened ... yet.

Why does she need $50,000 a month for alimony? That's way too much. Even $10,000 a month would be a lot. Anyone can live on $100,000 a year easy so don't be greedy.

This is why most ex-wives end up dead.

I find it extremely ridiculous that someone actually receives $50,000 a month in alimony. Exactly what in the HELL are you buying in one month's time that would require you to receive that much? I would really and truly like to know because obviously she is pissed off that she might not be getting that much if her ex-husband has his way about it. I seem to get by with an income MUCH less than that and I am doing alright....

Ugh go make your own money you gold digging parasite. Unless he has children with her he shouldn't have to give her anything, she's a grown woman she can make her own way in life just like the rest of us.

With child support which I assume she gets or why would he pay a set amount, she gets 900.000$ each year from him. Who can live on that, really? :)

And if you are in such a privileged situation of getting nearly a million per year then you better save that up and you can have a fully paid for luxury home in only a couple of years and a couple of years more and you wont have to work ever again.

in the words of the late Marvin Gaye: 'you got a flair for style / and the style is all the while / what could i do? / the judge said she gotta keep on livin' / the way she's accustomed to.'

you'd think a one time payment of $60...0K ( one year's worth of alimony ) would be plenty enough for anyone to make themselves self-sufficient. but i guess it's easier to just sit around and collect the cheques.

somebody slap that bitch one heavy, so she starts thinking. it'd be reasonable to change the alimony and child support values. for the kids. and one could still cut from that atleast half. how much money do those kids teen years in college cost? that's worth saving without living with big pockets.

Bet ole Brendan won't be in hurry to marry again real soon. Maybe, unless he don't like money! Get out the playboys and some Jack Daniel dude.

I think alimony is stupid, if you have kids, child support is enough, lazy women need to get a freaking job. And yes, I am a woman. Maybe for a short time so you can go to school and learn a trade but forever? Talk about setting women back, they can go on and have a man move in and have relationships and live on their ex's money...total BS!!

Too many women seem to think that men are their daddies. It's amazing how quickly people develop a sense of entitlement. But you know, he picked her. A lot of these men are not interested in nice women. He should not be surprised.
