Rose McGowan Files for Divorce
Actress Rose McGowan’s two-year marriage is over. The Grindhouse star has filed for divorce, citing “irreconcilable differences” as the reason for her split from visual artist David Leavitt. In her legal papers, obtained by TMZ, the 42-year-old asked a judge to reject any claim for spousal support.
Rose opened up her photo album and shared quirky wedding and honeymoon snapshots with fans online after she and Leavitt, aka Davey Detail, exchanged vows in Los Angeles in October 2013. The then-newlyweds celebrated their nuptials with a honeymoon in the Maldives. She later revealed she and Leavitt had picked their spooky wedding location in the hope they’d see a ghost. The actress, who has dated Marilyn Manson and her Planet Terror director Robert Rodriguez, said, “The place was haunted. There was a silent movie star who drove herself off Mullholland (Drive), which is a famous road in Los Angeles, and killed herself after she found out her husband cheated on her, and it’s said that she haunts the place. How amazing would it be to see a ghost at your wedding? I would have loved that. That would be everything.” But there was no ghost and now Rose’s marriage appears to be dead. Ironically, Rose almost lost her home in a fire weeks after becoming engaged to the artist in July 2013. The actress has since accepted the blame for the blaze, insisting her lack of kitchen skills led to the drama. Firefighters were called to her property after McGowan’s pal Courtenay Semel reported the fire.
