While his growing fame boosted his net worth, his personal life, on the other hand, made him lose millions.
John Cleese has been married four times in his life. He was previously married to wives Connie Booth (1968-1978), Barbara Trentham (1981-1990), Alyce Faye Eichelberger (1992-2008).
Among his three unsuccessful marriages, John's divorce settlement with his third wife Alyce Cleese had a big blow on his financial status. His net worth would be more than $10 million if he hadn't wanted to pay his ex-wife Alyce a total of $15.3 million.
He had given $10.2 million cash and the reaming in assets to Alyce, who is a psychotherapist, author and talk radio host by profession.
John and his third wife Alyce tied the knot in 1992 but after six years of their marriage, they got a divorce in 2008. As per divorce settlements, John had to pay.
The paygrade also included a $2.55 million worth house in Holland Park, West London, a beach house in Santa Barbara, California and a New York apartment.
According to the divorce settlement papers, Ayce would receive $765179.40 for seven years but later the interim payment, due to some reasons, was reduced to nearly one-fourth.
Following the divorce finalization with Alyce, John got married to Jennifer Wade in 2012 and they are still living together without a divorce rumor.
