Another Hollywood marriage, done. Clint Eastwood's wife, Dina, has filed for divorce, citing "irreconcilable differences."
Us Weekly first broke the news of the couple's separation in late August. Dina subsequently filed for legal separation on Sept. 9, only to withdraw the documents just two days later. On the same day Dina dismissed her separation filing, Clint Eastwood was photographed in Los Angeles with his girlfriend, Erica Fisher.
A source close to the family tells Us, "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."
The former TV news reporter, 48, who filed divorce documents on Monday in Monterey County Superior Court, wants full physical custody of the couple's 16-year-old daughter Morgan. Mrs. Eastwood also wants her soon-to-be ex-husband, 83, to pay for all legal fees and spousal support.
The couple wed in March 1996. Eastwood is also dad to eight other kids from five different relationships, although he has only been married once before to Maggie Johnson. The actor has one son, Kyle, and daughter, Alison, from that marriage.
Morgan appeared alongside her mother and half-sister Francesca Eastwood in Mrs. Eastwood & Company, a reality series that followed the family's daily adventures in Carmel-by-the-Sea, Calif., where Eastwood was mayor from 1986-88. Although the E! show was short-lived (it only aired for one year), the Million Dollar Baby director, who prides himself upon privacy, was unhappy about exposing his family on the small screen.
