[1]Actor Brendan Fraser — famous for appearing in The Mummy — is asking a court to reduce his child support and alimony payments.

Fraser is asking to reduce his annual payments of $900,000, reports The Daily Mail[2], as he claims his acting career has slowed and he can no longer afford to pay alimony and child support at that level.

In addition to his career decline, Fraser also cited to the court a series of medical issues that have reduced his film roles. His ex-wife, Afton Smith, claims the actor is hiding money and that he can continue to make the payments.

According to the Internet Movie Database, Fraser has a number of upcoming movie roles[3] with 10 either completed or in production. He is currently appearing as the voice of Scorch Supernova in Escape from Planet Earth, his first film in two years. Fraser and Smith divorced in 2009 after being married for nine years. They have three children together.
