Well what a weekend this is for celebrity divorces! Patrick Dempsey and his wife, Jillian Fink, are divorcing (she’s the one filing) after 15 years together, and Mandy Moore and Ryan Adams are also calling it quits, of about 6 years.
Here’s Dempsey and Fink’s (sounds like a wacky law firm!) statement on the matter, exclusively from PEOPLE:
It is with careful consideration and mutual respect that we have decided to end our marriage. 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.
The couple have 3 kids: one set of twins (7 years of age), and one 12-year-old.
Now as for Moore and Adams, here’s their statement, given to Us:
Mandy Moore and Ryan Adams have mutually decided to end their marriage of almost 6 years. It is a respectful, amicable parting of ways and both Mandy and Ryan are asking for media to respect their privacy at this time.
I think Dempsey and Fink have the better statement, for sure. It’s more personal and heartfelt. Moore’s and Adam’s feels wooden. C-.
Anyway, I don’t know anything about either marriage, but I’m surprised by the Dempsey one — I thought they were rock solid.
What do you think? Surprised by these?
