Dario Franchitti Dating — Or Reconciling With Wife Ashley Judd?
Dario Franchitti’s estranged wife, actress Ashley Judd, hurried to his hospital bedside after he was in a terrifying crash at the IndyCar Series Grand Prix in Houston on Sunday, stirring rumors of a possible reconciliation.
After the crash, Judd took to Twitter to share her thanks to the fans who were thinking of Franchitti and to let them know that she was on her way to see him. She also posted a message of hope for Franchitti’s recovery after suffering a concussion, a broken ankle and fractures to his spine.
Thank you for the prayers for @dariofranchitti I have only clothes on my back & the dogs but that's all that we need & we are on our way.

Judd and Franchiti announced their plans to divorce in a joint statement back in January: "We have mutually decided to end our marriage. We'll always be family and continue to cherish our relationship based on the special love, integrity, and respect we have always enjoyed.”
The pair, who’ve been married for nearly 12 years, have not publicly announced plans to reconcile, thought it’s been reported by the San Francisco Chronicle that they have. Yet Wynonna Judd, Ashley Judd’s sister, seems to refute speculation that the marriage is back on. After Wynonna Judd tweeted about Franchitti’s accident, asking for her followers to pray for him, she clarified that he’s no longer her brother-in-law.
