John Cleese Gets Help Paying Ex-Wife’s Spousal Alimony

According to The Huffington Post, John Cleese’s girlfriend is helping him pay his ex-wife’s alimony. Cleese is embarking on an Alimony Tour, which he calls necessary to pay for his third divorce from wife Alyce Faye Eichelberger. Meanwhile, Jennifer Wade, his current girlfriend, is helping out with making ends meet.

Wade has said that she has done nude modeling for the sculptor Jonathan Wylder and had received a commission for each of his works. The job helps to pay for Eichelberger’s alimony, which is around $500,000 a year for the next seven years.

Cleese, 71, divorced his third wife in 2008 after agreeing to an $11 million settlement in finance and asset division. As part of the settlement, Cleese will pay his ex-wife alimony for the next seven years. Wade, a jewelry designer, is divorced from her first husband Richard Norris.

Wade’s divorce lawyer described her as a woman who took nothing from her divorce.

Terry Gilliam, Cleese’s former member of the Monty Python team, warned Cleese that it would be a mistake to marry Wade, a woman 32 years his junior. Gilliam said it would be stupid for Cleese to marry fourth time, especially to a woman that seems to fit the mold of his previous wives.
