Clark Gregg Divorcing Wife Jennifer Grey
In what has come as a shock to many, the 19-year marriage between actors Clark Gregg and Jennifer Grey has come to an end after the pair posted statements on their Instagram accounts.
E! Online reports that Grey and Gregg have been living separately since the start of the year and have just recently decided to formalize their separation. Both Gregg and Grey maintain that the separation is amicable and that their family continues to care, value, and love one another.
Because of the length of their marriage, the divorce announcement has come as a shock. There was also the fact that as recently as Father’s Day, Grey was posting adoringly about Gregg, calling him a dad and partner who is devoted and loving.
Grey and Gregg also have an 18-year-old daughter named Stella, who just recently graduated from high school. Gregg lauded his daughter’s achievement on his Instagram, calling her “deep and wise and hilarious.”
Both Gregg and Grey’s long careers have allowed them to work with each other, such as on the 2006 Lifetime movie Road to Christmas and on the ongoing television series The Conners. However, the roles the pair were best known for was as Frances “Baby” Houseman in Dirty Dancing for Grey and S.H.I.E.L.D agent Phil Coulson in several Marvel movies for Gregg.
As Digital Spy recalls, Gregg almost refused the role of Agent Phil Coulson in the first Iron Man movie because he was afraid that he was going to be cut out of the film due to the smallness of his role. Of course, Gregg has now appeared in five Marvel films and the long-running television series, Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.
The Gregg-Grey divorce is just the latest celebrity relationship news to make headlines during the global coronavirus pandemic. Recently, 35-year-old singer Katy Perry revealed she considered suicide after she split up with her then-boyfriend Orlando Bloom. Aside from the separation, Perry revealed the mixed reviews of her album Witness also contributed to her suicidal feelings.
Actress Megan Fox and musician Machine Gun Kelly have also grabbed headlines with their frequent dates, with the most recent one in Malibu. Fox has also had a starring role in the music video for Kelly’s latest song, Bloody Valentine.
Actors Ana de Armas and Ben Affleck have also been seeing each other, with the couple even wearing matching jewelry and each other’s clothes.
Engagement rumors have also swilled around Stranger Things star David Harbour and pop star Lily Allen since the pair have been in lockdown together and Allen has been seen sporting a diamond ring in one of her Instagram posts.
