Renée Zellweger’s boyfriend has been accused of being a deadbeat dad!
According to legal documents obtained by The National ENQUIRER, her beau – Doyle Bramhall II – owed and was ordered to pay his ex-wife thousands of dollars in back child support.
The “Bridget Jones’s Diary” star, 45, met Bramhall, a rock guitarist, in the 1990s when they were students at the University of Texas at Austin. They reconnected in 2012, and sparks flew.
As The ENQUIRER has reported, Bramhall beat a heroin addiction, but now he faces problems with his ex, Susannah Melvoin, a singer who once toured with Prince.
Their 12-year marriage ended in 2010. They have two children – India, 12, and Elle, 9.
According to legal papers, on Aug. 29 a California court ordered Bramhall to pay $4,332 per month in child support and $6,378 per month in spousal support “retroactive to Dec. 1, 2013.” Bramhall also owes $28,000 toward Melvoin’s attorney fees.
Renée, who’s worth an estimated $45 million, had her 2005 marriage to country star Kenny Chesney annulled. A friend told The ENQUIRER: “Pals are telling Renée not to jump into a marriage with this guy. He’s clearly still involved in a messy divorce, and no one wants to see her get stuck with his bills.”
