Casey Affleck – despite his controversial past – is still making money. In fact, in the divorce papers, as obtained by Us Weekly, the organization claims that the brother of Ben Affleck makes around $400,000 a year.
Summer Phoenix – who married Casey ten years ago – filed for divorce on the 31st of July, 2017. The model-actress wrote in the documents that they broke up back in November of 2015, even though it was revealed to the public around March of 2016.
An insider at the time of their separation said, “Casey and Summer are over, but there wasn’t any fighting. They’re both pretty good friends still.”
Summer – who is the younger sister of Joaquin and River Phoenix – got married in 2006 in Savannah, Georgia. They have two children together, Indiana, and Atticus, who are thirteen and nine respectively.
According to reports, they finalized their divorce agreement just a couple of days after Phoenix issued the documents.
Additionally, a representative speaking on behalf of Casey said he would not “contest spousal support.” Despite their separation, sources say their relationship was relatively romantic while it lasted.
When he accepted the Best Actor award at the 2017 Golden Globe Awards, he even thanked his wife.
During the speech, Casey thanked his kids as well as Summer. He stated, “It’s my kids that give me permission to do this because they have got the strength of character to keep at bay all the noise that surrounds people that live publicly.”
He attributed all of the “good acting” ideas that he’s ever had to Summer Phoenix. As you may know, Casey Affleck was accused of sexual misconduct last year. It’s possible this was the reason for their divorce. Many actresses, most notably, Brie Larson, were not happy with the fact that Affleck received the award for Best Actor at The Golden Globe Awards.
