(CBS NEWS) – Clint Eastwood and wife Dina Eastwood have separated after 17 years of marriage.
Us Weekly reports that Dina Eastwood (maiden name, Ruiz) confirmed the news, saying the two “remain close but have been living separately for some time.”
A source told the magazine the split happened more than a year ago, but was an “amicable” one.
In April, TMZ reported that the couple’s marriage was “on the rocks.”
Eastwood, 83, married the former news reporter, 48, in 1996. They have one daughter together, 16-year-old Morgan. The “Million Dollar Baby” director also has seven other children — two with first wife Maggie Johnson and the rest from other relationships.
Dina Eastwood appeared with daughter Morgan and stepdaughter Francesca Eastwood (her mother is actress Frances Fisher) on the E! reality series “Mrs. Eastwood and Company,” which was mostly filmed in Carmel and ran for one season last year.
