The National Enquirer is reporting that Star Jones and her husband of three years,
Al Reynolds, are calling it quits!
“They hadn’t been seeing eye to eye for months and had already spent a great deal of time apart,” a friend of the couple told the Enquirer. “Finally, Star decided it was over."
Star reportedly tried to make the marriage work. In January she gave Al an ultimatum, telling him he had…"30 days to get his act together or "get out”. The pair's last public appearance together was at the Baby Phat fashion show in NY on February 1st which is around the same time that the marriage fell completely apart.
“Al moved some of his things out of their Upper East Side apartment and returned to Miami, where he’d already been spending a lot of time recently," says the source.
The Enquirer spoke to another insider who confirmed the breakup and revealed Star’s intention to seek a divorce. “Star is planning to divorce Al.” As for reason behind the split, the source added, “I think Star felt Al had spent their marriage riding her success while she did all the heavy lifting. She resented it. Deep down, Star is a very old-fashioned woman who believes a man should support her emotionally, physically and financially. She now believes Al failed her.”
I hate when marriages break up, however I really don’t feel too bad for Star. She knew that she was the higher wage earner in the relationship and therefore would pull most of the weight. I think it is becoming ore of a burden now that her career has a big question mark at the end.
As for Al, his free ride may not be over…that is if Star didn’t make him sign an iron-clad prenup. I hope she used her lawyer skills to her advantage.
