ëHallí star can’t return to Canada?
Former Kids in the Hall star Dave Foley can’t come home to Canada because, if he does, he could face jail time for unpaid child support, according to reports.
Speaking on fellow comedian Marc Maron’s WTF podcast last month, Foley, 48, said that a recent court ruling on the money he owes his first ex-wife, Toronto writer Tabatha Southey, has put him in a horrible financial position.
At a hearing last November, an Ontario Court of Justice judge upheld the existing child support agreement that says Foley must pay Southey and their two sons $10,700 in monthly child support, Pop Eater reported.
He also has to pay an additional $5,000 a month towards the $589,082 in arrears accumulated since August 2003.
The judge said Foley would go to jail for 10 days for each payment he missed, Pop Eater reported.
“I’m happy to give away half my money, that would be great,” Foley told Maron on the podcast. “But I’m literally obligated to give away 400% of my income, or otherwise go to jail.”
After the success of homegrown comedy show Kids in the Hall, Foley headed to Los Angeles, where he worked on the hit NBC sitcom NewsRadio.
He recently guest-starred on an episode of ABC’s Desperate Housewives.
