In March, Dennis Quaid’s third wife, Kimberly Buffington filed for divorce. She cited “the discord or conflict of personalities” as the reason for their split, and had already made arrangements for joint custody of their children. Rumor has it that Dennis was a drunk – and had a bad temper.
Looks like she’s had a change of heart, because she’s withdrawn her divorce petition!
It looks like Kimberly Buffington-Quaid is not yet ready to quit her husband — at least not officially.
TMZ learned Friday that Buffington-Quaid withdrew her divorce papers, which she filed in early March, from her husband of seven years Dennis Quaid. The site speculates that her 180 has to do with complications in dividing the couple’s assets.
In the original divorce petition, the actor’s wife of seven years asked for spousal support and for their community assets to be fairly divided. The document also cited that while Buffington-Quaid would temporarily hold onto the family’s residence in Malibu and the Mercedes, the 57-year-old actor would get the Cadillac Escaladeand a condo — but they would share the family Range Rover.
The couple shares twins Thomas and Zoe, who almost died as newborns in 2007 when the medical staff at Cedars-Sinai Medical center accidentally gave them a huge overdose of the drug Heparin. After filing a lawsuit with the hospital and the drug manufacturer, the couple was awarded $750,000.
Buffington-Quaid is the actor’s third marriage. He and Meg Ryan divorced in 2001 and share 19-year-old son Jack, who stars in The Hunger Games; he and actress PJ Soles divorced in 1983 after five years together.
Wonder if they really worked it out, or if she’s in it for money (like several sites are suggesting). They were in the middle of a nasty dispute over money, and it wasn’t clear whether or not Kimberly would have gotten much of anything. Good prenup perhaps?
I hope they DID work it out, and she’s in it for the right reasons. For the sake of their kids!
