Fogle and McLaughlin’s divorce finalized

Subway’s former spokesperson, 38-year-old Jared Fogle, and Kathleen McLaughlin have been granted a divorce by a Boon County judge after a five year marriage. The divorce was finalized on November 16, just three days before Fogle was sentenced to prison for pedophilia-related crimes.

The divorce was filed by McLaughlin back in August following the breaking news of a scandal surrounding Fogle’s sexual crimes. The former Subway pitchman, who rose to fame after losing a significant amount of weight on an all-Subway diet in 1999, was sentenced to more than fifteen years in Englewood’s Federal Correctional Institution after pleading guilty to engaging in sexual relationships with two minors and victimizing twelve others. He also pleaded guilty to distributing child pornography.

The court documents also include a September filing from McLaughlin contesting Fogle’s request to spend time with their two young children.

Mr. Bean star divorces wife of 24 years

On November 10, the district judge at the Central Family Court in London finally granted a decree nisi to Rowan Atkinson, of the Mr. Bean and Blackadder fame, and his wife Sunetra. The couple has reportedly been separated since 2014. The two were married for 24 years and have two children together.

Sunetra Atkinson cited her husband’s “unreasonable behavior” in their separation, although details were not given. The ex-couple were allegedly building a home together when they decided to separate, and the two have been living in their own London homes ever since.

While the decree nisi represents a step towards the resolution of this separation, the divorce will not be finalized until either party applies for a decree absolute. Typically, a person may apply for a decree absolute six weeks after the grant of decree nisi. The time delay allows further discussion of finances and other issues between the husband and the wife.

Even divorces that do not take place in the public eye are incredibly difficult. At the BB Law Group PLLC, our attorneys in The Woodlands are prepared to help you work through this process as painlessly as possible. Call us today at (832) 534-2589 to learn more.


Actor Guy Pearce and wife Kate Mestitz split

Guy Pearce, 48-year-old British-Australian actor of Memento fame, announced on October 13 that he and his psychologist wife, Kate Mestitz are divorcing after eighteen years of marriage. Pearce posted the announcement online, confirming rumors that have been circling about the couple’s status, and revealed that he and Mestitz have actually been separated since January of this year.

Pearce is known to keep his personal life private, so it was not surprising that the actor did not provide a reason for the separation. The now ex-couple met back in 1980 and had been married for eighteen years after tying the knot in 1997.

The divorce was amicable, according to reports and Pearce himself. The actor had nothing but kind words for his ex-wife in posts made to his social media accounts after news of the divorce broke.

Pink Floyd legend Roger Waters divorces wife

After three years of marriage, music legend and Pink Floyd bassist Roger Waters, 72, is divorcing his filmmaker wife, Laurie Durning.

The couple had been living together for ten years before finally tying the knot in 2012. Durning has also reportedly been telling her friends and Hamptons neighbors that she and her husband have been spending more and more time apart lately.

This is the fourth marriage for Waters, and it has been revealed that the couple did have a prenuptial agreement in place at the time of their marriage.  However, some sources still suggest that the divorce proceedings may take a long time and may be very expensive considering the prominent career Waters has had in the past decades.

Going through a divorce is one of the most difficult things a couple can do, especially if there are any children involved. Separation from a spouse means adapting to an entirely different and new lifestyle that often makes for a rocky transition.
