Long time coming
According to court documents filed in Monterey, California on Monday, the couple, who married back in 1996 and have daughter Morgan (18) together, is officially divorced.
Clint and Dina split in August 2013, but they had already been living apart for a while, according to the reports.
Reality TV is to blame?
Several insiders close to the couple claim that their marriage started to deteriorate when the Eastwood family started making the reality TV show called “Mrs Eastwood and Company” about two years ago, in which Clint was only an occasional guest star.
“Clint was furious about the show,” an insider told People magazine.
“It went against everything he stands for. He’s incredibly private, and she put his kids on TV… It was not a happy time for them,” a source concluded.
Other people are to blame?
Though the couple is now officially separated, they seem to have remained good friends and Dina says that she doesn’t blame Clint for their divorce.
“I don’t think we will be getting back together. That is why I filed for divorce. I think maybe a part of me was holding out, like, ‘What are we doing here?’ Then there have been some definite signs that we’re not going to get back together, so let’s move on amicably is my opinion,” she said and added:
“Clint is lovely, he hasn’t done much. It’s other people around him have done things that have blown me away, and again my future ex-husband has done nothing (wrong). He’s probably the sweetest guy I’ve ever met. He is the sweetest, he is a loving, kind, low-key person, so my intuition was still great on marrying a good person.”
