How did James Caan make his money?
The details of James’ earnings were revealed during his 2016 divorce from his ex-wife Linda Stokes. The Elf star earned more than $1 million in residual payments in 2015 alone, claims Celebrity Net Worth. Of that cash, $140,000 was credited to the well-known Holiday movie, which had been around for more than ten years at the time.
According to the Los Angeles Times, in 2003 James and his then-wife Linda paid a cool $2.25 million for a 5,146-square-foot mansion in Beverly Hills, California. The former couple marketed the five-bedroom, five-bath property after divorcing in 2016, and it was finally sold to Entourage creator Doug Ellin for $3.8 million, giving them a profit of almost $1.5 million.
James Caan Divorce settlements
The actor was married four times before being divorced—not once, not twice, but four times. Caan allegedly tried to end things with his fourth love, Linda Stokes, multiple times before the divorce was finalized. The most well-known of his five children, Scott Caan, is an actor.
According to all accounts, his first marriage ended in divorce. The actor claims he eventually paid his ex $13,000 a month in spousal and child support and continued acting to make these payments.
James’ fourth divorce from Linda turned bitter because she demanded greater child support. As he was about to retire, the late actor accused her of damaging his career since he had to accept lesser jobs in order to pay for her spousal and child support even though he was ready to retire.
During that time, he declared, “I am no longer willing to take part in films and/or television shows which distract from the 50 years I have spent developing my name.
