Gary Oldman’s fourth wife files for divorce after yearlong separation
Veteran actor Gary Oldman is getting divorced for the fourth time, adding to his resume as a veteran of the dissolution of marriage.
Alexandra Edenborough, “The Dark Knight Rises” star’s wife of six years, filed a divorce petition in Los Angeles County Superior Court on Friday, according to documents obtained by the Los Angeles Times.
FOR THE RECORD
Jan. 12, 10:55 p.m.: A previous version of this article states that Alexandra Edenborough is Gary Oldman’s wife of five years. They have been married six years.
Edenborough, 36, a jazz and electronica singer, cited irreconcilable differences as the reason for the split.
The couple wed on New Year’s Eve 2008, but their date of separation was listed as “TBD.”
However, Oldman’s spokesman Douglas Urbanski said that the “Dawn of the Planet of the Apes” star and Edenborough separated more than a year ago.
They “have agreed to an amicable divorce” and “remain on warm, friendly terms,” he said, adding that Oldman had not yet filed a response to Edenborough’s petition.
“Alex and I had several great years together, and we shared a great love during that time; but there is big difference in our ages and ultimately that gap inevitably revealed different lifestyle interests,” the 56-year-old actor said in a statement. “While I have been sad about this for over a year, I am grateful for the good times we did have, and we remain friends. Of course I wish Alex the best happiness in the future.”
In the documents, Edenborough had yet to determine her separate property and their community property, saying she would amend the petition once the assets had been “ascertained.”
Edenborough wants Oldman to pay her attorney fees and is seeking spousal support.
The English actor wed three times before: first, for two years to English actress Leslie Manville, with whom he has one child; second to “Kill Bill” star Uma Thurman; and then to Donya Fiorentino. He and Fiorentino have two sons together.
Between Thurman and Fiorentino, the “Harry Potter” alum was linked to Italian model-actress Isabella Rossellini.
