John Cleese Is Working Hard Just to Keep Up with Alimony Payments

Posted By Cairns Law Offices || 28-Mar-2014

Divorce can happen to any couple regardless of their financial stature, age, length of time spent together or any other consideration. When divorce does happen, it is important that you have a skilled attorney advocating on your behalf. Obtaining legal representation will improve the chances that you will be able to quickly recover from your divorce and move on with your life.

Case in point is 74-year-old comedian John Cleese. Cleese is currently on his fourth marriage after his 3rd marriage came to an official end back in December 2008. As Cleese has passed retirement age, you would think that he would be enjoying life with his new wife. Financially, that is not the case. One of the terms of his divorce settlement was that Cleese pay his 3rd ex-wife $13 million in case and assets up front, then continue to pay her close to $1 million a year until 2016. To be able to afford making alimony payments to his ex, Cleese has been forced to go back to work. As he aptly named it a few years ago, Cleese is on his "Alimony Tour" earning the money to fulfill the terms of his divorce settlement agreement by doing what he does best.
