What’s Actually Going on Between Clint Eastwood and His Young Wife, Dina Ruiz

Sugar Daddy Clint Eastwood And Wife Dina RuizDina Ruiz, Clint Eastwood’s younger wife, con­firmed last week that she and her famous hus­band have been sep­a­rated for quite a while now. East­wood has yet to make any pub­lic com­ments about the end of their mar­riage, but his wife proved that there are no hard feel­ings between them when she took to Twit­ter to defend him, writ­ing, “I don’t like read­ing neg­a­tive things about Clint. He is a won­der­ful, good natured, bril­liant per­son. No mat­ter what, I attest to that.”

Ruiz seems to be in good spir­its about the split, and judg­ing by new pic­tures that have sur­faced of East­wood, so is he. The 83-year-old actor/director was recently spot­ted with a mys­tery woman who appeared to be much, much younger than he was. Accord­ing to sources, the younger woman report­edly spent the night at Eastwood’s place in Los Ange­les before jet­ting out of town.

There has been no word on whether or not East­wood and Ruiz, 48, will make their split offi­cial with a divorce. But if the celebrity cou­ple does end up going down that road, East­wood can rest assured know­ing that his for­tune is safe and sound—he’s esti­mated to be worth a whop­ping $375 mil­lion. The celebrity cou­ple report­edly has an iron­clad prenup in place, which will pro­tect Eastwood’s money should their sep­a­ra­tion lead to a divorce. With­out the prenup, Ruiz would have been enti­tled to half of every­thing. “Clint was deter­mined not to lose a for­tune to Dina, no mat­ter how much he loved her,” said one source. “She’ll be looked after, but it won’t bring Clint to his knees.”
