Anne Heche wants out of child support payments

Anne Heche and her latest squeeze, James TupperAnne Heche, who has a son with ex-husband Coley Laffoon, claims she can’t afford to pay child support anymore since her TV show, Men in Trees, was cancelled. Despite earning $65,000 per episode, she says she has only a total of $34,840.93 in her bank accounts, so an L.A. County Superior Court judge has suspended her obligation to pay for the time being. Heche lists her expenses as a mortgage on her Canadian house, rent on her L.A. house, auto and other miscellaneous expenses. Heche, whose previous lovers include Steve Martin, Ellen DeGeneres and several prior soap opera co-stars, left her husband, the father of her six-year-old son, when she fell for her married Men in Trees co-star James Tupper (he has since filed for divorce from his wife). According to, Heche was spotted at the Malibu Beach Inn over the weekend, where she blew $30 on appetizers, not including tip.

    Maybe it’s time to sell the Canadian house then or at least rent it out…if she is so hard up for cash and cannot pay for her child then she definately cannot afford to travel here to Canada! $30 on appetizers at the Malibu Beach Inn…?????? While her child goes without!!!! Dina Lohan better watch out, cause this chick is trying to take that Mom of the Year award!!

    It is amazing what we consider to be ‘necessities’ when we owe money isn’t it?

    Staying with your husband and child lots cheaper too.

    This broad is a real co-ed player, eh?? Not many people on this Earth can say they’ve slept with Steve Martin AND Ellen DeGenerate!!!

    It’s funny how the topic is about child support and Poppa John makes comments eluding to homosexualism, what does that have to do with the fact that Anne is obviously a dead-beat mom!

    Well, because she is a bi-sexual, dead-beat mom!!

    I think Anne could pay something. If not the full 15 thousand, pay half. Also what does the ex husband do for cash, is he strapped too.

    She also pays for her son to go to private school, or should I say she used to. Better get a job, Anne….cause kids don’t stop going to school, eating and outgrowing their clothes!!

    you are all so judgmental – you don’t know all sides of the story – maybe the husband has money too… And again, it’s all about the media grabbing onto anything to report.
    I’m more shocked to find out that Men In Trees was cancelled!!

    Well, at least she’s sticking to guys for now.

  10. tributegirl • May 17, 2008 @ 7:23 PM

    She has quite a high turnover rate when it comes to partners, doesn’t she? So this new guy has filed for divorce to be with her. I wonder if he thinks she is “the one”.
