Anna Gunn

Ex-Hubby Wants a Piece

of Her 'Breaking Bad' Money

Anna Gunn
's estranged husband is so into the last season of "Breaking Bad" -- he wants a piece of it.

Gunn's husband -- Alastair Duncan -- filed for divorce in 2008 and the marriage officially ended the next year.   The former couple has 2 kids but Duncan got child support for a short time after the divorce, but then agreed Anna could stop paying.

Things changed during the final season of the show, when Anna raked in more than $1 million ... and the lion's share -- $890,858.83 --- was from "Breaking Bad."    By contrast, he only makes $10K a month as a realtor/actor.

Duncan now says financial circumstances have so significantly changed ... it's only fair for him to get child support again.  He notes Anna has a new show on Fox -- "Gracepoint" -- and other projects including an off-Broadway show.

By the way ... of the million bucks she made last year ... she paid $92K to her agent, $51K to her business manager, $58K to her personal manager and $31K to her publicist. 

Welcome to Hollywood.

I met her a few times during the Breaking Bad run. She's a genuinely nice person! Wish her nothing but the best!

You made $112,000 a year...you don't need no stinking child support.

Does he have sole custody? People who use kids to get money piss me off!

Who has custody? If they have joint custody, then a spouse does not have to pay child support especially since the husband makes a good living. If he has sole custody, then yes she should probably pay him something to subsidize the children's expenses.

If he is the primary caregiver of the child/ren, then the children should definitely be getting child support from her if she makes that much more than him (not like 10K a month isn't great, even in California).
With these cases, the details are really everything and we do not know the details of their lives, living situations, child rearing duties etc. etc. Let the judge make a balanced judgement.

"He only makes 10K per month". I would do unsavory things for that sort of money.

They have been divorced since 2009. The kids reside mainly with her so this unsuccessful actor needs to have a seat. If they were not married last year, he is not entitled to her earnings. End of story.

The purpose of child support is to create some kind of equity between the households that will be raising the child/ren. It's not in the child's best interest if dad lives in a mansion and mom lives in a trailer park, or vice versa. If you don't want the hassle of fighting over child support for 18 years, then here's a simple solution... don't have permanent children with temporary partners!
