Valerie Bertinelli and her ex-husband, who disputed the prenuptial agreement and sought $50K in spousal maintenance, are now legally «divorced.»
After an unpleasant divorce, Valerie is now at last free.
After her ex-husband broke her heart, she talked about her dreams for love.
It is a fact. Divorced, Valerie Bertinelli. The actress has been anticipating this news for a whole year, and it has finally arrived. The actress from «Signed, Sealed, Delivered» stated that her attorney had just called to inform her that her divorce had been finalized.
Although Bertinelli’s filing states that the couple separated two years earlier, Vitale’s filing indicates that they had been living apart since December 2021. And now, a year after requesting a legal separation, she has successfully obtained a divorce.
She appeared happy and giddy in the video delivering the news, which was recorded at the airport while she was en route to see her kid. She wrote in her tweet: «11.22.22, second happiest day of my life.» She said before revealing that the divorce papers had been signed and were going to be filed:
Happy to be divorced. God, at last! Finally, it is over.
Why Did Valerie Bertinelli’s Divorce Become Acrimonious?
Although things between Bertinelli and Vitale currently appear to be very hostile, this was not always the case. The couple’s relationship got off to a great start. They first crossed paths in 2007, not long after the «The Promise of Love» actress and late singer Eddie Van Halen, with whom she had a son named Wolfgang Van Halen, had tied the knot in their first union.
After years of courtship, they moved further in their relationship in 2010 when Vitale proposed. Her trainer attested to Bertinelli’s happiness with her fiance:
She is overjoyed to be with her beloved.
The actress acknowledged that she could have remained single and remained with Vitale for the rest of her life. She had a strong desire to declare her love for Vitale to the world and to be able to name him her husband. Their 2011 Malibu wedding was the ideal occasion for doing that.
According to reports, the honeymoon phase began long before the couple walked down the aisle and remained beyond. However, they made care to execute a prenuptial contract before exchanging vows and rings.
The couple enjoyed many happy times together after being married, both personally and professionally. Together, they worked and had fun. The financial planner occasionally made appearances on Valerie’s Home Cooking and her sitcom Hot in Cleveland. They also started the tech marketing company Veebow.
Bertinelli and those close to her frequently discussed how content she was with her husband, and how their relationship only appeared to become better. Thus, when Bertinelli revealed she had filed for legal separation ten years later, citing irreconcilable differences, many people were taken aback.
After she filed, Vitale contested their prenuptial agreement and aimed to prevent Bertinelli from making a spousal support claim. Later, he also requested that the court grant him spousal support of $50,000 per month and order him to pay $200,000 in legal fees.
Bertinelli admitted that she would be content to live alone for the rest of her life after the divorce battle stretched on for almost a year. The actress told Hoda Kotb that she could never imagine trusting someone again and that the divorce process was awful.
She announced in an Instagram picture from September that she was selling her Jimmy Choo wedding shoes and Tiffany & Co wedding bands, along with a description that included images of the rings.
What Does Valerie Bertinelli Think of Love Now That Her Marriage Is Over?
Bertinelli emphasized that she would not be looking for love in the midst of her contentious divorce. She acknowledged that she would like to live alone and be happy as a single woman. She anticipates being happier and enjoying time with her pets and future grandchildren.
I’ll be content that way.
Although she rejects the concept of love, she nevertheless rejoices in it and is pleased for her son, who recently got engaged to his longtime girlfriend, Andraia Allsop. She looks forward to one day raising his kids as a grandmother.
