Clint Eastwood Gearing Up to Go Against Ex-Wife Dina Ruiz in Epic Divorce Battle

Clint Eastwood Sugar Daddy Against Dina Ruiz Divorce BattleThings might be get­ting a lit­tle ugly between Clint East­wood, 83, and his soon-to-be ex-wife, 48-year-old Dina Ruiz. The celebrity cou­ple was mar­ried for 17 years before Ruiz offi­cially filed for divorce in Octo­ber 2013, fol­low­ing a brief sep­a­ra­tion. In her divorce papers, Ruiz cited “irrec­on­cil­able dif­fer­ences,” although her deci­sion may have had a lot to do with the fact that East­wood had started see­ing another younger woman.

As a result of their divorce, Ruiz requested that her ex-husband pay her legal fees, as well as spousal sup­port. She’s also seek­ing full phys­i­cal cus­tody of the celebrity couple’s 16-year-old daugh­ter. Here’s where things get messy. East­wood has filed divorce papers of his own, ask­ing the judge to flat-out deny Ruiz’s request for spousal sup­port because, thanks to the prenup they signed, he’s not oblig­ated to pay her any­thing in that regard. He’s also request­ing to deny his ex-wife sole cus­tody of their daughter—he’s fight­ing for joint phys­i­cal custody.

Although the celebrity cou­ple is said to have ended their mar­riage ami­ca­bly, this could def­i­nitely put a kink in their plans to keep the divorce pro­ceed­ings civilized.
