Brendan James Fraser’s Personal Life
Actress Afton Smith and Fraser first linked during a cookout at Winona Ryder’s house on July 4, 1993, just a few days after Fraser’s arrival in Los Angeles. Three sons were born to them after their September 27, 1998 wedding: Griffin Arthur Fraser (born in 2002), Holden Fletcher Fraser (born in 2004), and Leland Francis Fraser (born in 2006). In an interview with GQ in 2018, Fraser publish that his oldest son, Griffin, had autism.
After their Beverly Hills, California house sold for $3 million in April 2007, Fraser’s publicist said that the pair had selected to get divorced in December 2007. For ten years or until Smith’s remarriage, whichever came first, Fraser was needed to pay $50,000 in alimony each month in addition to the $25,000 in child support payments. Early in 2011, Fraser applied to the courts for a decrease in his alimony payments, claiming that he was unable to make the $600,000 yearly commitment; he did not object to the payments for child support. Late in 2011, Smith charged Fraser with fraud for allegedly concealing financial assets and not revealing the terms of the film contracts for Furry Vengeance and Extraordinary Measures. In 2014, the court dismissed Smith’s claim of fraud as well as Fraser’s plea for a decrease in alimony. The involvement of both parents in their sons’ lives was praised.
