Danny DeVito and Rhea Perlman Separated After 30 Years

After 30 years of saying “I Do” to each other, couple Danny DeVito and Rhea Perlman’s marriage did not stand the test of time as it eventually led to separation just like most celebrity marriages.

30 years of marriage is really a gem nowadays as most marriages could not even stand the 20-year mark. This is a sad news for everyone especially for the supporters of the couple who have been there for all these years.

The news about the separation was relayed and confirmed by the couple’s representative, Stan Rosenfield, to Entertainment Tonight as published on ETOnline last Monday, October 8, 2012. Currently, no one knows the real reason of the break up.

DeVito met his wife Rhea on January 1971 when Perlman went to see a friend in the single performance of the play The Shrinking Bride. After meeting each other, they decided to move after two weeks, and eventually got married 11 years later on January 28, 1982. Their love for each other brought up three children.

Together, in 1992, they founded Jersey Films, a production company in which DeVito used to become a major film and TV producer. Through Jersey Films, he has produced many films which includes Pulp Fiction, Garden State, Get Shorty, Gattaca, and Freedom Writers.

They couple also worked together on the classic sitcom Taxi (1978-1983) for which DeVito won a Golden Globe and an Emmy Award. The two starred in the 1996 comedy film Matilda based on the children novel made by Roald Dahl.
