Brendan Fraser is looking to reduce his alimony payments but will continue to pay more than $300,000 a year in child support, despite hurting his back and potentially facing lower income, RadarOnline.com is reporting exclusively.
Fraser injured his back while trying to free a tree that fell on his Connecticut home when Hurricane Sandy hit the east coast.
“Brendan’s trying to reduce his alimony because he suffered a serious injury that could really impact his movie earning potential,” a source close to the actor tells RadarOnline.com.
Following the severe injury, which required months of rehabilitation in a Beverly Hills clinic, Brendan, 44, was advised not to perform his own stunts in future movies, which could drastically affect his pay.
And his divorce agreement allows his to seek reduced alimony payments if his income falls to a certain threshold, RadarOnline.com has learned.
But Fraser is not looking to cut back on child support. “He’s never missed one penny of his alimony or support payments,” says the insider.
Fraser had back surgery after trying to move a tree that fell on his home last year during Hurricane Sandy. He has been advised not to do his own stunts.
