    Ive put this under shopping because thats what the evil harridan will be doing.

    Cleese, who is also working on a film script, added: I got off lightly. Think what Id have had to pay Alyce if she had contributed anything to the relationship.

    In a recent interview the actor said: In my 70th year I will still be spending two months a year doing work that is of no interest to me and which is probably slightly spiritually depleting in order to feed the beast.

    He's Oscar-nominated?

    I'm a bit surprised he has so much money tbh.

    It's probably just Spam-a-lot. They're all making millions from that thing.

    Anyway, this is ludicrous. The whole divorce thing has just become a sham now, there's no way she can ever deserve more of his money than he gets.

    She's only got more than him, because he says she's got more than him.

    I'm sure he has other investments rather than just houses. No one that loaded keeps all their money in property.

    I suspect it happened it was awarded in America - they dont take kindly to divorce over there.

    If it was here he could just have changed the spelling of his surname and thrown some child benefit forms at her.

    Considering there are no children involved the fact she gets more money than him makes no sense. I would have thought as well that given they did not marry until the 90's there can be little claim of helping his career in a behind the scenes type way.

    Still I guess Cleese is still a multi millionaire so I wont shed too many tears for him.

    Well there are. Sort of. His and hers. His will be worse off as a consequence compared to hers.

    Daft.

    He is supposed to be a proper cunt mind. Didn't he punch Connie Booth in the face on the set of Fawlty Towers, in front of a live studio audience or something?

    I mean more they did not have children together which is normally why you would expect the wife might come out better from a divorce. What the existing children have to inherit is just a personal matter for them that would not really be related to the divorse itself.

    Of course as someone else pointed out this is just one side of the story.

    So it is believed, yes.

    Still, a few more series of the shite that is Batteries Not Included will put him straight in no time.

    Given his mental health worries I'd say the missus probably helped him out more than he makes out too. Well, based on no evidence whatsoever :)

    It was also the 70's when punching women was still fairly acceptable. Hmm actually maybe that was drink driving.

    He has remained friends with his first wife, Connie Booth, who co-wrote and starred in Fawlty Towers and the American actress Barbara Trentham.

    Connie Booth starred in Barbara Trentham? I don't recall that movie, but it sure sounds interesting.

    Cubby didn't know how to turn off sigs!

    I'd blow John Cleese for 12m. Hell, I'd do Andrew Lloyd Webber and Margret Thatcher at that price too.

    No doubt there.
  • Deleted user 21 August 2009 08:45:02
    John lives in Santa Barbara these days, so this divorce would have been filed under CA law and they are "harsh" there. That said, I lost a much larger percentage of my wealth after my divorce, ( sure as hell wasnt 50/50), its just that I'm not famous and I dont earn millions. But divorce is heavily biased in favour of the woman in the US and her if children are involved.

    Its a shame for him, but I am pretty sure he has a load more cash than any of us do even after this. I sure as hell couldnt afford a house in SB.

    I've always thought he was a massively ego'd, untalented dickhead, this has proven it.

    He might have a massive ego, but I think saying he's 'untalented' is stretching it a bit.
