Think 2015 was the year of splits? Think again.
Hollywood’s top divorce attorney Laura Wasser spilled some of the romantic climate of celeb marriages to Bloomberg Businessweek, and the marital forcast is…NOT SO GOOD:
“Several [of Wasser’s current cases] will be filed in March, after the Oscars,” it notes. “Her clients didn’t want to walk the red carpet alone.”
During the interview, the attorney revealed that one of her wealthiest clients likes to complain when she has custody of her kids on weekends because it requires work. “I’m like, ‘That sounds like every weekend to me,'” Wasser cracked. “‘Also, you have no job.’”
Then there’s another client who wanted to start a custody battle with her ex-husband after he fed their vegan kid a hamburger. “Vegans, man,” Wasser told the publication with an eye roll. “I’m sorry, but no judge is going to take away custody because you gave the kid In-N-Out.”
The savvy celebrity lawyer also revealed her MO for covertly submitting paperwork:
“When Wasser has several clients she knows will wind up on the cover of Us Weekly no matter what she does, she submits their cases together, so media attention will be diluted.”
At the time Wasser was interviewed, the attorney was working on a whopping 45 cases, many of them divorce-related. Obvi, she’s busy: some off her celeb clients include Heidi Klum, Angelina Jolie, Britney Spears, and all three Kardashian sisters.
“I’ll tell my clients, ‘I have someone else, I can’t say who, but you should really wait and file at the same time.” Many outlets have wondered why there were so many celebrity splits last summer. USA Today pointed out in a story that Gwen Stefani’s split from Gavin Rossdale in August was preceded by Jennifer Garner’s separation announcement from Ben Affleck in June. It turns out the timing was impeccable. Both Stefani and Garner are Wasser’s clients.
Gets you thinking, right? Who ELSE is gonna split up?! Tell us in the comments below what A list couple you think are just WAITING to file…
