However, Smith never became as popular as her former husband Brendan Fraser, who played the famous character of Rick’ O’Connell in the Mummy Returns trilogy in 1999, 2001, 2008.
Beautiful Afton and superstar Brendan met each other in a party and married in 1998. After that, she changed her surname from Smith to Fraser. The Fraser couple has 3 sons: Griffin Arthur, Holden Fletcher, and Leland Francis. Unfortunately, the couple’s relation couldn’t go for long so they filed for divorce in 2007 and it was formalized in 2009.
The reason behind their divorce has not been revealed. However, during the divorce proceedings, Afton demanded $600,000 in alimony per year. Though she was initially paid the required sum by Brendan, in 2013 he filed a case saying that he was not in the position to pay a monthly sum of $50,000 to his ex-wife. Afton's lawyer replied back that Brendan was not disclosing his wealth and hiding his property. However, we do not have more to say about the case.
