Danny DeVito is doing great after his split with his wife of 30 years, Rhea Pearlman.
To reportedly let everyone know just how great he’s doing, DeVito is going out to buy a convertible sports car, Radar Online has noted. The diminutive actor was seen trying out Porsches and Ferraris in a bid to quell what Radar Online has referred to as a mid-life crisis at age 67.
A friend of Danny DeVito said now that he’s free from his wife, the actor is trying to emulate another noted Hollywood player, Jack Nicholson.
“Danny has been embracing the single life,” a source said. “He is revisiting his youth and feels like a young man again and can do whatever he wants.”
The source added: “He’s done his duty as a parent, raising his three kids, and now that they’re adults, he’s looking to cut loose.
“The first steps of this transformation are trading his current ride for a flash car; he’s always wanted a Porsche or a Ferrari and he’s been trying them out for size.”
Danny DeVito’s wild ways were reportedly behind his split. He reportedly cheated on Rhea Pearlman with an extra from the movie Hoffa and had gained a reputation as a womanizer with a wandering eye.
“He may not appear to be a ladies’ man, but Danny certainly gets a lot of female attention … Danny can be quite the flirt and because of his powerful status in Hollywood, he’s not ashamed to abuse his position and chat-up young, aspiring woman looking to make it in the industry.”
When Rhea Pearlman had enough of Danny DeVito’s running around, she decided to end their marriage. As it now appears from the Radar Online reports, Danny doesn’t mind being free from her.
