    This is not surprising. Look at their photos together. Seldom you can see them comfortable being together. Difficult times ahead for them but they will be able to go through it.

    I never stopped watching Grey’s Anatomy because of McDreamy and Meredith Grey. Just love them. Patrick and Jillian seemed happy with their children. This is shocking…

    what’s in the water in Hollywood..I mean come on, does anyone there believe in marriage counseling?


    i think patrick cheated on jillian

  • Baseliner

    probably another woman looking for huge amounts of child support and alimony

  • Gambol

    Of course, because bitches never do the cheating, right?

  • vicki

    When she married him he was a has-been, not getting any roles of note and a financial failure. She stayed with him even though he is spending more and more time away from home “racing” cars. She deserves every penny she gets. Supported him all the way.

    Not going to lie, they lasted 3-5 years longer than I expected.

    With Harry Styles

  • Meredith

    That’s what I was saying!!! I’m sad though for them and their kids!


    it’s because jillian filed for divorce, duh. common sense.

  • Dee

    um no, shes just as successful, shes a really famous makeup artist. (kstew….jlaw and kate winslet are her 3 main girls, just to give you an idea) among many other really big actresses and not to mention she just released her own jewellery line not long ago. she *will* most likely get support and alimony….but shes pretty set herself. she doesnt exactly need it.

  • Gambol

    Newsflash: assuming she got caught cheating and wasn’t completely braindead, she would damn well run to the divorce lawyer before he could. She’s not stupid, she knows filing first puts him on the defensive, not her.

  • carrie

    In my opinion,a wedding who lasts 15 years is yet very very great so when it happens in Hollywood,it’s exceptional …

  • Delores Pauldo

    She knew he loved his racing. Never bothered her before about what he did. Why didn’t she get her a job. Depending on him to support her.

  • dontaskme2cook

    Sometimes when you have children, your priorities change, and what didn’t bother you then, bothers you now. that is life, it is ever changing, and if you don’t change while your responsibilities change, it will leave you behind….

  • SunnyAutumnn

    He either cheated with a woman or cheated by being more devoted to racing than his wife. Who gets custody of all of their animals?

  • Revengefan0101

    She has a job. She’s a well known make up artist.
