Clint and Dina Eastwood have separated after having been married for 17 years. Dina is Clint’s second wife.
On Friday, People magazine reported on the couple’s split, noting that they have been living apart for a while. An anonymous source told the magazine: “This is really sad.. They were great partners for many years.”
Mention was made of the rather curious Tweet, posted by Dina last week: “Darkness somewhere means light somewhere else. #newbeginnings Have a cheeky weekend!” possibly suggesting some kind of personal issues in Dina’s life.
This followed a Tweet Dina posted earlier in the week, after Celebrity magazine broke the news of the separation:
“Time and truth go hand in hand.I try to spend TIME being positive while the TRUTH percolates.” Finishing the Tweet with a question: “What do YOU do to be patient when you’re antsy?”
Another source, who also wished to remain nameless, told the US report that the couple split, unofficially, over a year ago, confirming that the split was completely amicable: “Clint fell out of love with Dina a long time ago.”
Dina and Clint Eastwood have a 16-year-old daughter together, Morgan, though the 83-year-old multi-Oscar winner has a total of seven other children from different woman including his first wife, Maggie Johnson.
Morgan appeared with her mother Dina along with one of Clint’s other daughters, Francesca, on the E! reality series, Mrs Eastwood & Company.
Dina Eastwood reportedly said after her marriage to Clint, which was on March 31,1996: “The fact that I am only the second woman he has married really touches me.” At the time, Clint said about his new wife: “As far as I’m concerned, this is the woman I like monogamy with.”
