Dina Eastwood is making her split from legendary actor/director Clint Eastwood permanent.
The 48-year-old reality TV mom filed for divorce from her 83-year-old husband in Monterey County Civil Court Wednesday. She had filed for legal separation from him last month.
In her initial filing Dina sought spousal support and primary physical custody of the couple’s 16-year-old daughter Morgan. Clint and Dina do have a pre-nup, but the details of that aren’t known.
What is known is Clint is worth approximately $375 million and he wanted to protect his fortune when he married Dina. He learned the hard way when his first marriage ended in divorce in 1984 and reportedly cost him nearly $25 millon.
In August, Dina revealed she said she and had been living separately for an undisclosed length of time, reportedly before she went to rehab for stress and depression back in April.
The former TV news reporter hinted that the filing might have been difficult for her when she asked her Twitter followers Wednesday “when you last struggled, what did you say to yourself to pull out of it? (At my age, I have many mantras!)” and thanked folks who responded.
