Valerie Bertinelli and her ex-husband, Tom Vitale are in the middle of a bitter divorce.
According to Globe magazine’s July 4 issue, Vitale is making things especially difficult for the Hot in Cleveland alum. After all, he wants to make a grab out of Bertinelli’s $20 million fortune.
A source claimed that Bertinelli just wants to get the divorce over with because it’s putting so much strain on her health.
“Valerie just wants to make it clean and uncomplicated. And Tom seems to have other ideas. Friends are saying this is the last thing she needs. This divorce could get ugly very fast,” the source said.
The source also said that Bertinelli never really got over her first marriage to Eddie Van Halen. And she couldn’t also mourn Van Halen’s death in 2020 because her divorce from Vitale has sucked up all her energy.
“Val’s still getting over Eddie’s death but her breakup is getting nasty with Tom pressing spousal support. They had a prenup separating their assets and Valerie thinks it should stick. Now, Valerie’s soured on men because of the challenges that she’s going through right now,” the source said.
In a recent interview, Bertinelli admitted that she could no longer see herself falling in love with another man. After all, she has been through so much and could no longer find it in her heart to trust other people.
Meanwhile, Bertinelli has also been making headlines due to her extreme weight gain. During her interview with Today, the actress said that the additional pounds are like her protection.
The actress also said that she already has a plan on how she would be able to get rid of her weight. She said that she will focus on her mental health first before dealing with her physical health.
“I know this weight is protecting me right now, and when I get healthier internally and emotionally that weight will come off. Because I know I'm treating my body better. I'm drinking less alcohol, I'm eating less sugar, I'm putting more vegetables in my body, but my body is doing this for a reason because it needs protection,” she said (via Daily Mail).
Bertinelli also said that she’s learning how not to judge herself too much because of the way she looks or because of the pounds on the scale.
