So sad. ‘House of Cards’ star Molly Parker and her husband, Benedict Matthew Bissonnette, have just filed for divorce — even though they’ve been separated for 7 YEARS already. We have all the details, here.
Molly Parker, 44, and Benedict Matthew Bissonnette have officially filed for divorce, according to TMZ. The couple married in 2002, and Benedict ended his marriage to the House of Cards actress just recently, even though the two have actually been separated since 2009. Benedict cited irreconcilable differences for the reason behind the split. As for the reason behind why he decided to file for divorce just now after being apart for seven years? He reportedly has not given a reason.
Fortunately, the divorce for the ex-couple seems to be very amicable. Benedict filed for joint custody of his and Molly’s 10-year-old son, and doesn’t want either to pay the other’s spousal support. As far as assets to split, he told TMZ that there are none. We are so happy to hear that the ex-couple seem to be on very good terms and that Benedict is making sure that everything is fair in the divorce.
In the meantime, we’re just so excited for season five of the hit Netflix show to premiere in 2017, and we’re counting down the days. House of Cards also stars Kevin Spacey, Robin Wright and Kate Mara and left off last season with Kevin’s character, Frank Underwood, and Robin’s Claire Underwood watching the live execution of a hostage together. If you recall, Claire also broke the fourth wall when she looked directly into the camera along with Frank. Seriously, it was such an intense moment, and the possibilities for what will happen in season five are just endless.
