This morning we reported that singers Mandy Moore and Ryan Adams have called time on their relationship, and now it seems that another couple has called it quits.
It has been revealed that Grey’s Anatomy star Patrick Dempsey and his wife of 15 years, Jillian Fink, are filing for divorce.
In a statement released to Us Weekly, Dempsey – known for his role as Derek ‘McDreamy’ Shepherd – said: “It is with careful consideration and mutual respect that we have decided to end our marriage.”
The couple, who are parents to 12-year-old Tallulah and seven-year-old twins Sullivan and Darby, added: “Our primary concern remains the wellbeing of our children, and we ask with profound gratitude that you respect our family’s privacy at this very sensitive time.”
While the couple do not have a prenup, it is understood that Fink is looking for spousal support from Dempsey.
This is very sad news for the couple and their children.
