Clint Eastwood Splits From His Young Wife

Clint Eastwood Sugar Daddy Splits Young WifeOn the heels of the Michael Dou­glas and Cather­ine Zeta-Jones split, another celebrity cou­ple is pulling the plug on their May-December rela­tion­ship. Clint East­wood, 83, and his 48-year-old wife, Dina Ruiz, have report­edly separated.

East­wood and Ruiz got mar­ried in 1996 and it has been rumored that trou­ble has been brew­ing in their mar­riage for a while because they were drift­ing apart—understandable con­sid­er­ing their 35-year age dif­fer­ence. Ruiz even report­edly admit­ted her­self to rehab in April 2013 for depres­sion and anx­i­ety result­ing from her mar­riage falling apart.

Ear­lier this week, Ruiz admit­ted that she and her older hus­band are still close, but have been liv­ing apart for quite some time now. A source has claimed that the celebrity cou­ple has actu­ally been sep­a­rated for over a year, and that their deci­sion to break up was “amicable.”

Nei­ther East­wood nor Ruiz has made any other com­ments about what led to the dis­so­lu­tion of their 17-year mar­riage, although the source revealed some insight, say­ing, “Clint fell out of love with Dina a long time ago.”

What do you think: Did their 35-year age dif­fer­ence have some­thing to do with Clint East­wood and Dina Ruiz separating?

    Clint East­wood is fur­ther­ing his decline into d-baggery by dump­ing his lat­est wife. First it was talk­ing to an empty chair, now this. Time for Clint to hang it up.

    The arti­cle before this one is enti­tled: “How I landed a lux­o­ri­ous Car­ribean cruise from a rich man who is old enough to be my father.“
    Very, very appropriate.
