Clint Eastwood and his wife, Dina Eastwood, have split after 17 years of marriage, and the former television news reporter has already moved on with her high school boyfriend, if recent reports are to be believed.
The National Enquirer said in a recent report that Dina is currently dating Scott Fisher, 50, an old high school boyfriend of hers, who is a University of Hawaii assistant basketball coach.
“Dina is in love with Scott. It's like high school all over again,” a source told the publication. The couple’s representatives have not confirmed the news, but according to various reports, Dina has been open about her relationship with Fisher and she has even posted online videos of the two vacationing together in Hawaii.
Dina confirmed her split with Clint in an interview with Us Weekly on Thursday, and added that she remained friendly with her former husband although they had been living separately for over a year.
Rumors that their marriage is on the rocks started doing the rounds last year when Clint was seen without his wedding band at the TriBeCa Film Festival in New York City earlier this year.
“Clint fell out of love with Dina a long time ago,” an insider was quoted as saying by the Daily Mail.
Problems between the two, who have not been pictured together for the last couple years, began to crop up last year when Dina insisted on filming “Mrs. Eastwood & Company,” a reality show for E! that did not go beyond its first season, according to a Celeb Dirty Laundry report.
The show featured the couple along with their daughter Morgan, and Francesca Fisher-Eastwood, Clint’s daughter from his relationship with “Titanic” actress Frances Fisher, and reportedly, Clint did not appreciate that his privacy was being invaded. This prompted him to spend a lot of time away from home, during which time Dina reconnected with her former boyfriend, Fisher, the report said.
