I don't know what it is about Laura Dern but she seems to have the worst luck when it comes to the way guys leave her. First Billy Bob Thornton went to film a movie and never came back and now, Ben Harper files for divorce on Friday afternoon even though according to TMZ the couple has been living together and were intimate as recently as last week.
In his filing Ben says the couple have been separated since January and wants to make sure the judge denies Laura any spousal support. If they have been acting as husband and wife and having sex Ben is going to have a hard time making that January separation thing stick. So, I wonder what happened that a sudden filing was needed. Does one of them have someone new? That would seem the most likely. Maybe Ben has someone new and the person is pregnant so to look good he has to say he and Laura separated back in January.
The couple has two kids.
