During their divorce, she sued Brandon for $900,000 per year in alimony and child support payments, which the court ordered him to provide in 2009, but after four years, Brandon asked the court to reduce that amount, claiming he wasn’t getting any new jobs.

Afton claimed that he had hidden $9 million in film contracts in 2009 during the divorce proceedings, and Brandon then stated that he has medical problems, suffering from a back injury, and that after the divorce and the death of his mother, he was suffering from depression.

Brandon was ordered by the court to pay $50,000 per month to his ex-wife for the next ten years, or until she remarries.
