Meryl Streep divorced
One day, lovers swear fidelity and promise to be together in joy and sorrow, in sickness and in health. But years later, some of them understand that it is time to move on separately. Of course, there is no point in criticizing people for such a difficult decision. After all, this is a completely adequate choice for them.
This is exactly what Meryl Streep, who divorced her husband after 45 years of marriage, decided. However, it is worth clarifying that the couple separated 6 years ago. And the first suspicions arose among the loyal fans of the star of the film “The Devil Wears Prada”. You see, the last time the actress appeared at public events in the company of Don Gummer was back in 2018.
It is worth noting that information about Meryl Streep’s divorce became known thanks to one insider. So, in a conversation with Page Six, the source told about the separation of the actress and the sculptor. At the same time, one cannot help but note the fact that the spouses separated on a friendly note. “Don Gummer and Meryl Streep have been divorced for over six years. And although they will always care for each other, they chose to live apart.”
“My husband didn’t deserve this”
By the way, the fact of amicable separation is confirmed by one curious detail. You see, the Hollywood celebrity is in no hurry to get rid of her engagement ring. Moreover, it is worth remembering how warmly she spoke of her husband while receiving her third Oscar.
“First I want to thank my husband. Because when you thank your spouse at the end of your speech, your words are drowned out by the music. My husband didn’t deserve this. I want him to know that I owe everything that is valuable to me in life to him .”
Therefore, you shouldn’t be surprised that this couple was called one of the brightest and strongest in Hollywood. By the way, they met back in 1978. You see, Meryl at that time lost her first husband, who died in a battle with cancer. A 29-year-old girl needed help to move out of his apartment. A relative arrived to help, taking a friend with him. The last one was the young and talented sculptor Don Gummer.
Not wanting to leave Meryl in the lurch, Don began subletting her a New York apartment. A spark broke out between the young people, the flame of which was supported by touching letters. And soon they decided to sign. During the years of their union, Streep and Gummer became parents four times. The heirs of the Hollywood actress also connected their lives with art.
