To everyone that wasn’t in the business it was a huge shock to hear that Danny DeVito and wife of 30 years Rhea Perlman were separating. Although his colleagues at It’s Always Sunny expressed their sadness, another source from a movie set that DeVito worked on went to RadarOnline to discuss the not-so-surprising news.
In the early 90s while working on the set of the film Hoffa, DeVito’s colleague and crew member witnessed a bit of the actor’s womanizing ways, which has been one of the reasons that’s said to have caused the split. The crew member went on further to explain what they saw of DeVito’s womanizing ways on that particular set, saying that the actor, “romanced a young blonde extra and the two would frequently get intimate in his limousine after he showered her with empty promises of making her famous.”
The insider claimed the relationship between DeVito and the film extra was “pathetic.” Aside from Danny cheating on wife Rhea Perlman, the extra in question was very young. The source explained to RadarOnline, “obviously just having sex with him in hopes that he’d make her a star. Danny would have his limo driver drive them all over the city and they’d canoodle in the back before going back to his room together.”
According to the source, who of course didn’t want to be named in fear of his/her career went on to say that DeVito didn’t hide his cheating and was flamboyant with the women he slept with around on set .”I felt bad for Rhea, and I felt bad for the girl, too, because she was just a naive kid from Pittsburgh.” The source continued, “It was sad to see her pretending to really like him when really it was just because of who he was. And worse, Danny preying on vulnerable young girls like that.”
Do you think this will be a long and painful divorce for Danny DeVito and Rhea Perlman?
