Anne Heche Singin the Money Woes

annehech.jpgAnne Heche is flat broke and she’s made a plea to the court that she receive a temporary reprieve from making child support payments. From The Pop Crunch Show,

“The actress was requested and was granted a temporary reprieve in paying her child and spousal support obligations to her ex, Coley Laffoon, and her son, Homer. Anne claims she is on her last leg financially after ABC pulled the plug on her series Men In Trees last week. In a legal declaration to the court, Heche states that since January she has “been unemployed and had no income from employment except for one very short term contract for a movie role for which [she] received a total of $65,000.

And it gets worse. The actress also wrote in her court statement that she has $34,840.93 in “all of her accounts” and that if she continued her support payments of $14,798 per month, she would “have a deficit of more than $6,000 by May 31, 2008.

She also wrote that she has $364,000 of legal, accounting and other personal debt.”

Now, why Anne Heche would be having such trouble paying child supports payments is beyond me. I’m glad we’ve all had a peek into her finances but I think it’s missing the point. If she doesn’t have it, she doesn’t have it but why doesn’t she have it? Lord knows, she has made some money in the past and I don’t see how you can blow through that in six months and then expect not to have to help pay for child expenses.

And I admit, I don’t know many children that need one parent paying almost fifteen grand for monthly expenses but does that mean that Heche shouldn’t pay at all? Why not just take it down to a couple thousand? The final ruling of the court was that Heche would not be held responsible for payments up to July 1 and that on July 2, another hearing would be held to reassess the situation.
