Anne Heche made about $1M last year. Now, I know it is not a spectacular amount compared to other celebrities, but compared to the rest of the world it is a lot of money. I think most people who made that much wouldn't really miss $45,000 a year especially if it was support for their child. Anne though feels that she is paying way too much money for the care of her son with Coley Lafoon.
"I pay an extraordinary amount of money to him, and it's unfortunate because it is what I believe keeps him from getting a job."
I would agree that $3700 a month would be an extraordinary amount of money to pay each month if you made say, $5000 a month or something like that, but when you make a $1M and probably spend $3700 a month on clothes or entertainment, I am less likely to take your side. This is not spousal support she is paying but is child support. For her child. Sure, her ex is using the money and if he feels like using it and not working so he can stay at home and take care of their son, then so be it. I really, really dislike when people complain about child support payments. I especially dislike it when the child is 7 years old and can Google his mom's name and sees what she said about him and his father.
How much do you suppose Anne spends on stupid stuff or on her child with her current boyfriend? Do you think she complains about that? I actually think $3700 is a little low for someone who makes as much as she does.
