Ex-wife sucks The Mummy actor dry

Kent - Brendan Fraser's ex-wife claims he is lying about not being able to afford spousal support fees.

The Mummy actor filed documents in Connecticut in February, asking the court to lower his $50 000 monthly alimony payments because he wasn't getting enough acting jobs to come up with the cash.

According to TMZ, his former spouse, Afton Smith, has now hit back with her own legal papers, claiming he is earning enough thanks to new film roles in Extraordinary Measure and Furry Vengeance.

Earnings still above average

She insists Brendan's net worth of $25m also justifies the financial support payments, especially since his earnings haven't yet fallen below $3 million a year, the figure agreed in their divorce settlement for the reduction of alimony.

Brendan, 44 - who has three sons with Afton; Griffin, 10, Holden, nine, and Leland, seven - divorced the blonde in 2009. He strongly denies hiding his riches from his ex-wife, alleging a number of "medical issues" have affected his earnings.

The actor has also been involved in an expensive and bitter legal dispute with film producer Todd Moyer, who sued Brendan last year for allegedly physically attacking him on two occasions in 2011 and 2012.
