John Cleese - John Cleese Sells Photos To Settle Divorce Payments

Funnyman John Cleese is selling signed photographs to bankroll alimony payments to his ex-wife.

Cleese split from his third wife, Alyce Faye Eichelberger, in 2008 after 16 years of marriage and her divorce settlement included an annual handout of more than £960,000 (£600,000) for seven years.

The writer famously devised a stand-up comedy show - dubbed The Alimony Tour - which is based on his divorce battle, to help raise money to pay his bills.

He also sold his prized Bentley car and props from his 1974 movie Monty Python and the Holy Grail to boost his coffers, and now it has emerged Cleese is offering signed photographs of classic moments from his Tv comedy shows.

The limited edition prints, showing scenes from sketch show Monty Python's Flying Circus and sitcom Fawlty Towers, are available for around $48 (£30) from an online memorabilia website.

Cleese bounced back from the divorce by marrying his fourth wife, Jennifer Wade, last August (12).
