Rebecca Gayheart, 46, just filed for divorce from her husband of 14 years, Eric Dane, 45, , according to The Blast. The Beverly Hills, 90120 star is reportedly asking for joint custody as well as spousal support from Eric. The precise details on what led to this surprising separation have not been released. They have 2 daughters together, Billie Beatrice and Georgia Jane, ages 7 and 6, respectively.
Sadly, this isn’t the first time these 2 have publicly faced scandal. Eric, best known as Mark Sloan (aka “Dr. McSteamy”) on Grey’s Anatomy, and Rebecca found themselves at the center of a controversy in 2009 when Gawkerreleased a video of the couple having a threesome with another woman in a hot tub. Rebecca’s name was also splashed across headlines in 2001 when she accidentally struck and killed a 9-year-old while talking on her cellphone. She pled no contest and was sentenced to 3 years probation.
“We’ve all made mistakes. My one regret is that I got the person I love most wrapped up in all that: Rebecca,” Eric told People of the video scandal in 2014. He went on to explain that a happy home life was a key ingredient that he’d been missing since childhood. “I never had a family, and now I do. I know I’m a very lucky guy.”
