Dina Eastwood Files For Divorce From Clint Eastwood After 17 Years Of Marriage
Dina Eastwood filed for divorce from her Hollywood-legend husband, Clint Eastwood, on Tuesday, after filing for legal separation in September.
Dina (née Ruiz) marked "irreconcilable differences" on the legal documents, and sources say that her decision to file for divorce was fueled by Eastwood’s decision to move in with his new girlfriend, Erica Fisher.
“Dina could not handle how Clint decided to live with his new girlfriend and her son. It tortured her. She was deciding what to do and figure out the best course of action given this news so she withdrew the separation. But she decided this is what she needed to do now. She has been devastated,” a source told Us Weekly.
On Sept. 9, Dina filed for legal separation, but then filed documents to dismiss the legal separation on Sept. 11, causing some to speculate that she had changed her mind about ending the relationship. In light of Dina’s decision to file for divorce, it appears that she simply decided to skip separation and file for divorce.
“Clint fell out of love with Dina a long time ago,” a source told Us Weekly about the split.
In her divorce fillings, Dina is reportedly asking the court for full physical custody of the couple’s 16-year-old daughter, Morgan Eastwood, and spousal support. It also mentions a “premarital agreement,” so many of the terms of the divorce could already be agreed upon.
Dina, 48, and Eastwood, 83, have been married for 17 years and reportedly first separated in June 2012. They have one daughter together, but Eastwood has fathered eight other kids in previous relationships. Eastwood’s other young daughter, Francesca Eastwood, Dina’s stepdaughter, stared on Dina’s E! reality series Mrs. Eastwood & Company.
Though Dina has yet to publicly address the news of her impending divorce, she did turn to her Twitter following to ask for words of support and encouragement on Wednesday, asking, “When you last struggled, what did you say to yourself to pull out of it?”
When you last struggled, what did you say to yourself to pull out of it? (At my age, I have many mantras!) Share your thoughts?! #cheek
