Clint Eastwood’s wife announces separation on first anniversary of Senile Chair Incident

On August 30th, one year ago today, a jaw-dropped nation witnessed Oscar-winning actor/director Clint Eastwood have a conversation with imaginary friend, Barack Obama, center stage at the Republican National Convention in Florida. The so-called Senile Chair Incident (I just made that up, you like?) exposed an 82-year-old Hollywood legend for, partisanship aside, the out of touch and schmuckity schmuckhole that he is IRL.

Unfortunately for Eastwood, on the first anniversary of the biggest mockery in the public eye, his wife of 17 years, Dina Eastwood, announced her separation from the gravelly-voiced filmmaker.


US Weekly has the scoop:

Clint Eastwood, 83, has separated from second wife Dina Eastwood (nee Ruiz) after 17 years of marriage, Dina confirms exclusively to Us Weekly.

The former TV news reporter, 48, says that she and Eastwood remain close but have been living separately for some time. In fact, a source tells Us the two actually split more than a year ago, in June 2012. “Clint fell out of love with Dina a long time ago,” the insider says, noting that the separation was “amicable.”

Clint and Dina have one daughter together, 16-year-old Morgan. Back in April, Dina checked herself into rehab for depression and anxiety, unrelated to substance abuse but possibly related to being wed to a man who speaks to furniture.
