It’s Official—Clint Eastwood and His Younger Wife, Dina Ruiz, Are Getting Divorced

Clint Eastwood Sugar Daddy with Dina RuizDina Ruiz, 48, has finally decided to pull the plug once and for all on her 17-year mar­riage to 83-year-old Clint East­wood. Ruiz has now filed for divorce from her older hus­band, cit­ing “irrec­on­cil­able dif­fer­ences” as the cause for seek­ing the divorce.

Trou­ble has been brew­ing for a while between this celebrity cou­ple. Ruiz report­edly checked her­self into a rehab facil­ity for anx­i­ety and depres­sion before reveal­ing a few months later that she and her famous hus­band had actu­ally been sep­a­rated for a while, pos­si­bly over a year. Although their split seemed to be on friendly terms, that all changed when Ruiz found out that East­wood was hook­ing up with another younger woman, Erica Tomlinson-Fisher, who hap­pened to be the ex-wife of her ex-boyfriend.

Eastwood’s wife filed for a legal sep­a­ra­tion in Sep­tem­ber, but then retracted it two days later, around the same time that pho­tos sur­faced of East­wood with Tomlinson-Fisher. Accord­ing to insid­ers, Dina was dev­as­tated by Eastwood’s new May-December rela­tion­ship with Tomlinson-Fisher, even though the celebrity couple’s mar­riage was already on rocky ter­ri­tory. And that’s what prompted her to pro­ceed with the divorce. “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,” said a source. “But she decided this is what she needed to do now.”

In her divorce papers, Ruiz is request­ing full phys­i­cal cus­tody of their 16-year-old daugh­ter, Mor­gan, and is also ask­ing East­wood to pay for spousal sup­port and cover the cost of her legal fees. The celebrity cou­ple does have a prenup in place, which will pro­tect Eastwood’s $375 mil­lion fortune.

Mean­while, Eastwood’s new sugar baby is report­edly liv­ing with him in his L.A. man­sion and has even been spot­ted behind the wheel of his Mercedes.
