“Revenge of the Nerds” actor Robert Carradine has decided to end his long 25 years of marriage with wife Edith Carradine. Just a week before Thanksgiving, the couple decided to file their divorce papers. It has been reported that the couple was staying apart from July this year due to problems in their marriage.
The couple cited irreconcilable difference between themselves which prompted them to file for divorce, TMZ reported. Since the couple has two adult children, son Ian and daughter Marika, there is no problem of child support in their case of divorce. However, the actor has pleaded that his ex wife pay him spousal support. As People reported, he also requested the court to terminate its ability to award spousal support to Edith Carradine.
The couple was in news last March when they met with a bad car accident. Though they survived the accident, their car was badly damaged and both of them had to be in hospital for days to recover. Carradine was fined by the police and was issued a ticket for careless driving.
Soon after they recovered from the injuries caused by the accident, the couple was back in action and featured in an episode of the famous show “Celebrity Wife Swap” last summer. In the show, the actor switched household with Terrell Owens, former NFL star and his girlfriend.
The 61 years old actor is the son of reputed actor John Carradine. Robert Carradine is known to all for his famous role in “Revenge Of The Nerds” which is a 1984 American comedy film starring other actors such as Ted McGinley, Anthony Edwards, Bernie Casey and Timothy Busfield. Before being married to Edith Carradine, the actor was in relationship with Susan Snyder with whom he has a daughter actress Ever Carradine.
