It looks like Dennis Quaid and his wife Kimberly Buffington-Quaid are splitting up. CNN's confirmed with Quaid's rep that his wife has filed for divorce.
TMZ reports that the divorce petition Kimberly filed states, "The marriage has become insupportable because of discord or conflict of personalities...that destroys the legitimate ends of the marriage relationship and prevents any reasonable expectation of reconciliation."
The petition also reportedly states that the couple has a temporary custody agreement for their 4-year-old twins, with each parent being allotted time to spend with them.
TMZ notes that it appears Kimberly has asked for all of their shared assets to be split down the middle, while Quaid has responded that he doesn't want her to get anything.
Quaid's rep tells CNN, "Contrary to what has been reported, a satisfactory settlement is being worked out for both parties."
The couple married in 2004, the third marriage for "Soul Surfer" star Quaid. He was previously married to Meg Ryan, whom he divorced in 2001, and P.J. Soles, whom he divorced in 1983.
I like this internet blog very much, Its a really good situation to study and receive information . "Do pleasant things your self, but unpleasant issues via others." by Baltasar Gracian. 萬用行動電源 http://www.powerbankhq.com
Is anyone really surprised by this? When will men learn? Honestly, it just gets old! Younger women DO NOT want older men unless they are a) in it for the money or b) have Daddy issues. No wonder she asked for half of his assets – she figures she's earned them by being with an older man. It's easy, men, if you want a real relationship then find a secure woman closer to your own age. If you need to validate your existance with a younger hotter woman then accept the fact that she's not in it for the long haul and get a good pre-nup.
What's that old saying...I hope the fu**ing you're getting is worth the fu**ing you're getting...that saying was invented for older men who hook up with younger men. Just ask Mel Gibson. Or even Demi Moore (Ashton's barely a man so I say she counts).
America thinks that they care about women. What a joke. If they cared then America would have Hillary Clinton as a current president & not Barry.
You must be one of those guys who don't support your children. My x had to pay $15 a week for my 3 kids. That is $5 a pc. That wouldn't keep them in bubble gum. He wouldn't even pay that. So before yuo go getting on Melanie, ask yourself this. What does the "P" stand for? I have a good idea what it stands for.
He's a Dbag! Look at his past history with his marriages and how he treats women. She deserves to have enough to take care of the kids.
Come on its not like its his FIRST marriage. If he doesn't have a Prenup everyone knows its 50/50 in Kali. So whats the big deal unless he's being bitter. He should know these things by now, sorry Dennis time to put on your big boy pants and pay the bill.
Why do people even get married? Most end in divorce.....he'll be dumb enough to get married again
Hopefully their wounds will heal.
Sad for the children ... once again.
All people should be given emotional testing before marriage and before children.
She is trash who was just looking to marry someone famous............I feel sorry for the kids.
Looky Looky Real Good. One man's left overs is another man's play toy.
I always thought his acting was insufferable......... completely unbelievable
George Bush did it.
Now, please return your tinfoil hat to your head and ask yourself why you're obsessing over people you don't know, with lives you know nothing about and that you'll never have a clue of.
BZZZZT! return to the mothership!
It's lebron james' fault
Can we shoot 'em? http://vimeo.com/m/37268075
Wow another Hollywood divorce.
Three marriages, three different women to the same guy. Sounds like he's got a problem.
Three strikes, you're OUT.....give it up Dennis. Marriage is not for you!
What a surprise another Hollywood couple divorcing.
And Oh, I don't care about Dennis Quaid's marriages, as with many actors he's a good one, but they can't keep a family and have kids with multiple people. So what's new? It's Hollywood, we don't really care about those people, just like to be entertained with movies.
I was reading the comments and all of a sudden a guy's going off about being a man and Verizon. What the heck? LOL What does Verizon have to do with him being a man? Is he looking to get money from Verizon or donations from posters? :D
I'm available Mr Quaid!! That dude is hot shame on the broad who took him for what she could get. I'll take him if he's dirt poor! That dude is fiiiine!
Cha-ching! Time to cash-in. next time get a prenup!
Marriage takes above all, commitment. When things are good and bad. Anybody can quit or give up. However, maybe she has a legitimate reason for wanting to end the marriage. I feel extremely sorry for the children most of all.
what kind of an idiot would mess up a relationship with meg ryan
I heard he left her for shelby overman and they watch jaws 3 together all night long
WITH anything. Duh!
nice sweater neal!
To number 96, Yarah, maybe it's because I'm pagan but what in the hell did that have to do anything?
Amulette, Don't be a whiner. If you don't get along with your partner, it's best to move along. A lot of women do it, why can't men? Every coin has two sides.
Time to move along? Wow,,,How many marriages have you had so far? 3? My friends parents have been married 58 years. Do you realize how this is done? By "not moving along" and keeping it together and when bad times along you focus and sacrifice for the other person. Hollywood marriages are nothing more than a sham based on ego's and many of the general populace follow in line but it doesn't negate the importance of marriage itself; only folks like you lesson its importance.
Meg Ryan says HaHa.
Boy, she's going to be collecting residuals from a whole lot of movies. That's a lot of money.
The rules of marriage in America are impossible. People have lost the ability for reconciliation in a self glamorizing society that we've become. That is why America cannot get along with the rest of the world. It's impossible to expect marriage and family to survive.
That's sad their marriage didn't work out. After the second marriage I think a person ought to consider just not getting married again.
JN 3:16 "For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life. 17 For God did not send his Son into the world to condemn the world, but to save the world through him. 18 Whoever believes in him is not condemned, but whoever does not believe stands condemned already because he has not believed in the name of God's one and only Son. 19 This is the verdict: Light has come into the world, but men loved darkness instead of light because their deeds were evil.
I bet Meg is gloating over this...
Now there's a surprise! I feel bad for the 4 year old's (who have no idea of what's going on) having to be shuffled around all the time, at least for a while, until the custody dispute begins in a few years from now
Meg ryan is nasty and super selfish...lousy actress too .always plays the same schtik.. Dennis was better without her
It's sad. I know in a 60 Minutes piece that the twins had health issues at birth and that it was touch and go. Sad they couldn't work through this.
Why some people continue to marry time after time...I have no idea. It's like playing the lottery; after buying hundreds of tickets and losing so much money, it's about time they face reality and realize that they're simply not going to win. Quit kidding yourselves and GIVE IT UP!!!!
Why they marry before the age of 60 baffles me. I will get married when I start needing diapers again.
Minds wander much? Or just can't stick to one subject without getting derailed? I know: It's really hard to stay with the topic. Not!
Beneath the Darkness was a horrible movie. He should give it up already........
she looks like she needs to lay off the botox
I guess YOU care since you not only opened and read the article but you commented on it. I was hoping for another Randy Quaid story, those are great.
To: Alumette/ Number 1 everybody needs to leave peoples private lives alone. I don't believe you would want everybody knowing every little detail in your life! And as for politics, democrates are no better when you CAN NOT TRUST THEM INSIDE WITH ANYTHING! ASK Hilary Clinton!
After a guy or gal figures out being married to the wrong person can be like having an insufferable roommate, it's
a simple move- eliminate the stress, but maintain an income without the stress source. Custody of the kids keeps
one party from depressed isolation, albeit takes some work. Basics- know your choice of a mate and take your time
before taking the leap. In the end, the kids will suffer.
Alumette: I agree with you 110%! You rock, girl! F***ing Neanderthals!
Eight years? REALLY? Damn man, get over it. On the divorce issue... It's THEIR business. Why do people feel the need to cast blame when none of us knows anything about their situation?
"wife be submissive 2 ur husbands, husband luv ur wife".lets leave competetion out of marriage dat way we can stay 2geda in mutual understandin.if a divors takes place, a hole has been bored 4 other divors n seeminly it will be passed to d children surly
In English, please?
"wife be submissive 2 ur husbands, husband luv ur wife".let leave competetion out of marriage dat way we can stay 2geda with mutual understandin.if a divors takes place, a hole has been bored 4 other divors n seeminly it will be passed to d children surly
Yet, another seemingly perfect white male gets dumped for divorce... so whats new?
Wasn't I just reading last year about his brother Randy Quaid? How he and his wife were pursued by the police and now live up in Canada somewhere for lack of pymt to several hotels/B&B's that he and his wife staid in. Dennis was outspoken about not talking to his bro thru all of that. Just seems a little odd to me that both brothers seem to have issues; I also recall Dennis being accused of inappropriately hitting on some underage girl at a celebrity golf tournament. Something's just not adding up.
Ahhhh those Quaid boys. Dennis is running from a fair settlement with his about to be ex and Randy is running from those "Hollywood Star Whackers" ;-).
Given Randy's frequent trips into La-La land and Dennis' wife-hopping, the Quaid family is probably one to steer clear of.
Yea its called life. I guess you have no skeletons in your closet?
Anybody else notice hoe the Verizon rant was just totally stepped over and ignored? Did I imagine it, was it really there, and no one just responded? Should we be expecting a Verizon employee to go postal in the near future?
I think there WAS a response wasn't there? (something like ??? What the...?)
I responded also.
I know this has nothing to do with Dennis Quaid, and out of curiosity, I went over to the Verizon ranter's blog and read it. I can totally understand why he's ticked off. If what he says happened is true, that's pretty bad on Verizon's part.
She looks like Charlie Sheen's ex.
Dennis....sounds like you can't seem to make a marriage work. You'd think because of your twins you'd make a special effort, but then again you didn't do that when you were married to Meg and had Jack to consider. You're a guy that SHOULD NOT be married. Shame on you for the inconsideration you show to your children.
There are THREE sides to every story: his ... hers ... and the truth.
The bottom line is, famous people should never marry without a prenup. or just never marry. It's the only way to be sure it's true love and not true love of money.
He's still hot.
Sorry about that one, Republican. We'll try to deal with our idiots, you deal with yours. *being blunt* I assure you the majority of us can read our native tongue. Again, my apologies. *bows politely*
That aside, this is another reason why I personally prefer being single. I'd rather read a book than deal with the black hole drama of marriage (or romance in general). It's a shame they had to divorce (though admittedly, a part of me is wondering why you'd marry someone just to divorce them.)
@ CARM..... I'LL TAKE THAT AS A COMPLIMENT DEAR .....
Prenup is not just a pretty word.
divorce wow my wife died at 39 wish she were here to divorce me and clean me out just so i could see her spend my money one more time
His wife does deserve half she probably put up with Dennis Big ego he always has had. Be wise and realize what mothers and wives do daily that is a job in its self .
His wife does deserve half she probably put up with Dennis Big ego he always has had.
Its sad the divorce is playing out in the media.WHATEVER CAUSED FOR THE ENDING OF THIER MARRIAGE,SO MANY PEOPLE WANT 2 KNOW.MY PRAYER IS 4 A PEACEFUL ENDING,PUTTING THIER KIDS 1ST.WHENEVER THERE ARE KIDS INVOLVED,THEY SOMETIMES FEEL CAUGHT IN THE MIDDLE.I PRAY 4 THE FAMILY 2 STAY FOCUSED ON THE BEST INTERESTS OF THIER KIDS&REMAIN RESPECTFUL TOWARDS ONE ANOTHER.
Regardless of what the cause of their divorce is (his side- her side) the truth lies somewhere in the middle. Except for very few marriages, there is usually no happily ever after in Hollywood. Still, it's sad when ANY marriage ends in divorce. I wish them well and hope they provide their children with a solid and loving upbringing.
Another Hollywood divorce? These things are soooo rare!?
URGENT – Please read more about VERIZON. Things they don't want the public to know! I was tormented by racial comments that were ignored, then racially discriminated against and wrongfully terminated for making complaints about the racial injustice.
Please visit my Blog Page to see what Verizon did to my family. What they have done to my family, and continue to do is horrific. Today they still will not accept responsibility. So I will not stop this FIGHT for JUSTICE! It has been 8 years and I refuse to give up!
You can read my stories about what VERIZON did to my family by GOOGLING:
• “Verizon Raped My Family – Cover Letter”
• “Verizon Raped My Family – Press Release”
• “Verizon Raped My Family – Requesting Criminal Punishment”
From there you can access the other letters through the recent post.
I am a man who has stood up against racism, discrimination, bullying, harassment, hostile environment, belittlement, threats, and retaliation, all while working for Verizon Communications, as they conspired to terminate me.
I am a man who is trying to hold his family together while in the process of trying to fight for my rights to be heard. I am a man who has brought up his family on morals, discipline, character, hard work, dedication and conviction to believe that good things happen to good people. I am a man who could not be more proud of my family for all their trust and faith in my conviction. I am man who is a proud servant in my community and deserves to be heard, as I am begging for JUSTICE!
I have learned that: “If you have no Money, A lot of Power, unlimited amount of Connection and resources, you have no chance at receiving justice within our country!
Even though I know this to be true, that justice of only for the few, I refuse to allow Verizon to beat me! I will fight them until I die. I will never give up, I will let the world know of the abuse I suffered and the lack of justice I have received.
Neal W. Dias
Wow Neal, for a sec there I thought you were going to make a plea for money.....to be sent to Nigeria ;-)
No one really knows what goes on in a marriage between two people. But one can only speculate. I speculate that Dennis Quaid was/is a big adulterous just like all the rest of Hollywood men. So whatever material/monetary gains she receives out of the divorce – she most likely deserves.
So another Hollywood celebrity is divorcing. next story please!
Lol! I only read this article because I didn't even know he was married. Now that you mention it I don't care. If I wasn't so bored this morning I wouldn't be reading any of this. Have a nice day!
To Sarah ... it must be .... you read it .
Hey idiot...if you can't...spell it right... The first time... Stop posting.
I bet she didn't even make that HALF of the income she's asking for. This woman is an embarrassment to the rest of us decent women. Earn your own money gold digger. I get $360 a month in child support and $100 of that is arrears because the father of my child didn't help out in any way, shape or form for a little over 4 years. Now he visits my daughter for a couple hours a month. He hasn't tried to see her more than that. So getting the child support I get I don't mind using it on my daughter since her father doesn't get her anything else and spends so little time with her. If she spent half the time with him and he fed her and helped cloth her I wouldn't even ask for anything from him. These greedy women forget the money is for their kids basic needs. Not for their personal use.
Well said Melanie!
Who r you trying to kid you would want the money even if your ex visited because most wives feel they deserve it. The reason you husband doesn't visit you daughter often it probably has something to do with you. You may be pushing the BS but no one is really listening
Hey, it's a fair amount of work to be a Hollywood trophy wife. You've got to look much younger for as long as possible. That takes a lot of work of the surgery variety, expensive creams, etc., not expressing a contrary opinion, laughing at all jokes, etc. (and I'm not being sarcastic here). You also know your shelf life is limited anyway. So it's unreasonable to ask for half if she's going to raise the kids? Kids too are expensive, duh.
Most likely he cheated – just like every male creep in hollywood and the ones that are not famous too!!
Rita, sounds like you took a bitter pill. Get laid much?
I like how people try to act like they know what's going on in complete strangers lives. Always sad to know a marriage ends, especially since it started with love. Best to both, including their child.
Marriage is a beautiful thing if you are with the right person .... I married the wrong men 2 times .... there won't be a 3rd ... TRUST ME ...I'M COOL .
Your life story is interesting to no one.
TO SARAH ... IT MUST BE ... YOU REad it.
m&m, you wrote "I married the wrong men 2 times", but what you should have written was "they married the wrong woman". There's 2 sides to every divorce.
@ SARAH ..THEY MARRIED THE RIGHT WOMAN DEAR .... THEY JUST DIDNT KNOW WHAT TO DO WITH A GOOD WOMAN ... EVERYTHING ISN'T ALWAYS 2 SIDES LOVE ... IN ANY CASE ..I'LL TAKE YOUR COMMENT AS A COMPLIMENT .
You seem cool M&M.
Sarah seems like a kunt.
I ALWAYS THOUGHT WHEN A MARIAGE WAS GOOD PEOPLE DID NOT STRAY.WHEN MEG R.MADE THE MOVIE WITH R.CROW.,SHE LEFT DENNIS. HE MUST HAVE PROBLEMS SOME WHERE.
Why are you yelling ?
hey alumette....it states the WIFE filed for divorce..not him,so there goes your theory of the 'bully' kickin her to the curb... from what i can tell from your rant and lack of intelligence..you're a democrat..
Your a dick, from what I can tell
She looks like Meg!!
I live in Livingston, MT where Quaid and many other celebrities have second homes. When Quaid and Ryan were a item he had his moments. Quaid used to pull up to the local Dairy Queen drive through and pull out a Bull Horn to order. He thought it was funny expect for the 16 year old girls getting blasted while trying to take his order. The locals all just used to shake their heads. He's chilled out though because he hasn't done stuff like that since he Meg years
That was back when he was heavily into drugs, hence, their divorce.
Re the bullhorn thing.....maybe Dennis is a little bit like Randy, afterall ??
Sad for the children!
Oh, get off it, Southerner. The kids are probably brats anyway, who spend all their time with nannies. They are better off without parents who fight all the time! That's a rotten way to live/grow up.
Who gets the airplanes Dennis?
But why is he photographed with his daughter?
Seriuosly, I thought you were on the run. Keeping up with family best way you can, huh? Honestly, I enjoyed your work. You going to get it together and do ot again? You are good and you know it. Stop messing around, when your 90 you can be stupid then.
Frankly, they both seem like smart, concerned, dedicated parents to their kids and their customers (film & real estate).
Marriage is a challenge and let's give them credit. All the Best to Both, as well as their family.
She is cute & nice like Bambi
Seriously? I think she's a rough stretch of highway.
I guess the twitter report that Dennis Quaid took a random girl back to his hotel on Valentine's Day were true?
Too bad. Sounds like things went south pretty quick. I'm wondering if she just married for the $$$. Maybe she's a gold digger
Maybe he just wanted a trophy wife. Guys do that you know.
Whereas it means nothing that he's been married multiple times? And supposedly has problems with faithfulness?
I hear he is kind of a richard. Goes with fame I guess.
What the heck?!? That's too bad they couldn't work it out for the sake of their twins.
Wow...after all they've been through together regarding the twins. Given he was on marriage #3, I guess we should've seen the writing on the wall.
"Kimberly has asked for all of their shared assets to be split down the middle." Sayz it all. Gold mining beotch.
without a pre-nup, she could get half of his stuff especially since they have 2 kids. Gold digger ? who knows. I doubt he is easy to live with. He seems to have a short fuse.
And a wandering eye...
California...community property...right down the middle is fair. I'm just glad to hear the twins have survived their terrible time in the NICU, after being given too much of a blood thinning drug and are now thriving 4 yr. olds :-)
well he wants her to get "nothing", so that makes him what, exactly? Sound fair to you?
She should definitely get some money and he should be financially responsible for the children but 1/2 is ridiculous. It's now that a spouse (man or woman) does not want to earn his/ber money. Marry someone rich and then you know that you can take 1/2 of something that was not rightfully yours in the first place - nice gold-digging plan.
Are you really this "simple"...hahaha. They only get half what is made, etC...(now get ready for this and I'll go slow for you) DURING THE MARRIAGE...she is not digging for his gold, which I'm sure he pawned a loooong time ago the drug addict freakshow...
Sockpuppet – My comment was in SUPPORT of the wife, splitting it down the middle is fair...so to answer your question, NO, I do not think his view of not giving her anything is fair.
"Shared assets" usually means all of the assets that were acquired during the marriage. The couple probably has a prenup, which would preclude the wife from getting assets that the husband brought into the marriage. If, what another poster wrote, and the wife comes from money, that would be another reason for them to have had a prenup. If they don't have one, that was a huge mistake. Still, she is the mother of his children and should get child support, at the very least. Oh, and by the way, it is a well-known fact that people, who resort to name-calling ("beotch," who writes words like that, anyway?) have an extremely limited vocabulary and use of English. My suggestion would be for you to get some tutoring, so that you can learn how to express yourself, without resorting to elementary school behavior . . .name-calling.
They have been married for going on 8 years. They have 2 children together. She should get half of everything.
The court will rule as such no matter what you morons think.
That's why you don't get married, just kick her out and move on.
you are a dream....what every woman wants in her life.....a bully who uses women for cooking, cleaning, breeding and then kicks them to the curb. What a prince ! you have to be a republican...any kin of Newt or the junkie ??? what's his name ? yeah....Rush Dumbo.
@alumette – Why are you bringing politics into this? Take your agenda elsewhere..jesus christ.
Yea – alumette – Bill Clinton, John and Ted Kennedy were all great husbands, cheaters and murderers. Throw you under the bus if you ever spoke up. These are the Democrats idols.
I was in agreement with @alumette until she decided to make this a GOP political issue. Some people just can't restrain themselves from casting wide stereotypical nets, and we wonder why congress can't get along.
Have to agree with Fanatic, 1ofTheFallen, and Cliff. Alumette – get a grip.
The primary reason is his past cocaine abuse. And now, he lashing out
To the wife. I truly like his acting abilities. But, Hollywood media and
Fame; Is the major cause of celebrity divorce.
I wish them both luck and privacy, During this difficulty time.
Don't be a whiner. If you don't get along with your partner, it's best to move along. A lot of women do it, why can't men? Every coin has two sides.
Who would marry you?A big b@@b stringy haired,meth headed, trailer trash,bleach blonde?No even she wouldn't want your mean a55.
I know Kim Buffington, she's a beautiful woman from a good and very wealthy Texas family !!! She's the ** farthest ** thing ever from trailer trash or meth or a "golddigger" or whatever stupid things people who don't know her would say...
She's very Classy and considerate.
Sorry they didn't work out, it happens.... For him to say she should "get nothing" is really insensitive and selfish, whatever. I would've never married him in the first place, lol.
That's why you are ALONE!
alumette -if he's a republican does that make you acommunist? What a moronic statement you made simply because you hate the other guy's opinion. Then again, leftists want freedom of opinion but ONLY for themselves.
Dennis – Don't trust "joint custody". It's a trick to get you to agree to generous terms during the divorce – then afterwards – her spineless sniveling immoral attorney will take 50/50 custody from you by draining your remaining assets. FIGHT TO GIVE HER SQUAT AND DIDDLY. Then – NEVER COHABITATE with a female again in this lifetime until the judicial system undergoes REFORMS. Get snipped too. Our corrupt courts use kids to drain equity from loving parents... it's their "carrot on the stick" to collect legal fees.
TRUST MY ADVICE. IT'S THE TRUTH. OUR FAMILY COURTS ARE PLAYGROUNDS FOR UNETHICAL LAWYERS.
GIVE HER NOTHING. TAKE EVERYTHING. She's going to take your kids anyway AFTER the divorce.
thumbs up! thats exactly what i do.
He's got a littered wake of past cheating, substance abuse. Unfortunately, his "not wanting her to get anything" does not trump the LAW. Expect to see them reconcile, because this ploy is just to provide attention and publicity to a sagging career.
He slept with Meg Ryan for years; how much can there be left to do romantically?
