Apparently, Laura Dern (Jurassic Park) was caught off guard on Friday when her two time Grammy winning boyfriend, Ben Harper filed for divorce, citing irreconcilable differences. If he really is doing this out of nowhere, he’s a major douche-a-saurus! He is requesting the judge not give her spousal support and he wants joint legal and physical custody of their two children – Ellery, 9, and Jaya, 5.
They’ve been married since 2005, and had been dating for five years prior to that. Now, there relationship is extinct. Harper says that he and Dern separated back in January, but that doesn’t add up considering people that know the couple have said they’ve been living and traveling together and were even intimate as recently as last week.
Dern has had some other high profile relationships, including: Kyle MacLachlan, Nicolas Cage, Renny Harlin, Jeff Goldblum, and Billy Bob Thornton. Her relationship with Thornton ended out of nowhere when he all of a sudden married Angelie Jolie. Wow, Jolie’s been a homewrecking for a long time (Team Aniston all the way!)
Needless to say, I’m sure she won’t be choosing to listen to any of his albums to help get over the breakup. Apparently Forever came too soon…
