Parents’ Marriage and Divorce
Griffin Arthur Fraser’s parents, Brendan Fraser and Afton Smith met at a barbecue party hosted by actor, Winona Ryder on July 4, 1993. Soon they started dating and got married on September 27, 1998, at the Bel Air Hotel in Los Angeles.
However, after one decade of marriage, they parted ways in April 2008. Following their divorce, the former couple got joint custody of their kids. However, they mostly reside with their mom in Connecticut.
After Griffin’s parents’ separation, his father was ordered to pay $50,000 in alimony and $25,000 in child support every month. In March 2013, Brendan attempted to reduce his alimony by claiming he had an income of $118,000 and a monthly expenditure of $205,000.
