Brendan Fraser - Brendan Fraser wants alimony reduced

Brendan Fraser is trying to reduce alimony payments to his ex-wife.

The 'Mummy' actor is seeking to reduce the amount of alimony and child support payment he provides his former spouse Afton Smith - with whom he has three children, Griffin, 10, Holden, eight, and Leland, six - following their divorce in 2009, claiming he can no longer afford to keep up $900,000-a-year payments as he doesn't earn enough, reports the New York Post newspaper.

Brendan, 44, has been accused of hiding his riches from his wife in court in Connecticut, but the actor denies any wrongdoing, alleging that a number of ''medical issues'' has prevented his earning potential as he isn't able to work as often.

The film star - who has starred in a string of Hollywood blockbusters including 'The Mummy' trilogy, 'Inkheart' and 'Journey to the Center of the Earth' - is expected to take to the stand and testify at Stamford Superior Court next month in order to have the amount reduced.

The actor is also locked in a bitter legal dispute with movie producer Todd Moyer, who last year sued Brendan for allegedly physically attacking him on two occasions in 2011 and 2012. The lawsuit follows the actor suing Todd - who was to produce 'The Legend of William Tell', with the star in the lead role - for delaying the film for two years, thus affecting his income and ability to take other work.
