Jillian Fink

Ten months apart has been time enough for Patrick Dempsey and Jillian Fink, it seems.

The pair split back in January after fifteen years of marriage, but were spotted in Paris just yesterday looking very much the happy couple.

Wearing sunglasses and dark sweaters, Patrick and Jillian held hands as they strolled through the streets, making it clear they are now more than just friends.

The couple's split was followed just two months later by the shock announcement that Patrick was finishing up his eleven-year tenure on Grey's Anatomy.

Both announcements were strongly linked to rumours Patrick had started up a fling with "a young woman" who worked on the set of the show.

According to reports at the time, Patrick's co-star Ellen Pompeo got wind of got was going on and blew the whistle to both Jillian and the show's creator Shonda Rhimes.

Despite the behind-the-scenes drama, Shonda Rhimes issued a touching tribute after the show aired, saying, "Derek Shepherd is and will always be an incredibly important character – for Meredith, for me and for the fans.

"I absolutely never imagined saying goodbye to our 'McDreamy'… His loss will be felt by all."

And while Shonda may not be ready to give Patrick another chance, it seems Jillian is.

The celebrity make-up artist has kept Patrick's surname on all of her social media accounts, still going by her married name of Jilian Dempsey. 

Patrick himself took to Instagram yesterday to share this romantic snap of the French capital:

The couple, who are parents to 12-year-old Tallulah and seven-year-old twins Sullivan and Darby, certainly seem to be giving things another go.



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.
