You would think that being on a hit show that is viewed in households all across the country, that its stars wouldn’t be as broke as a joke. Here’s one celebrity who is seemingly struggling to make ends meet. “Game Of Thrones” actress Lena Headey, who plays Queen Cersei doesn’t have two nickels to rub together. TMZ reports:
Headey opened up about her dire financial situation in new legal docs, obtained by TMZ, which she filed in response to her husband Peter Loughran’s demands for half of their $46,000 tax refund from 2011 … which technically could be community property from their marriage.
Lena — who filed for divorce from Peter last year — says she needs $6,000 from that refund ASAP because she’s barely scraping by, living off credit to make ends meet for her and their 2-year-old son.
Lena says she expects to receive acting income in the near future, but she needs the $6,000 advance from the refund right now. Lena says she’s willing to give Peter $6,000 from the refund to cover his living expenses … but she wants the rest placed into a two-signature blocked bank account pending a settlement.
The judge denied Peter’s emergency motion for half the money, and Lena’s proposal got tossed out with it … so it’s still unclear how the exes will split the money.
That has to really suck!
