Nothing lasts forever… and here’s one more reminder. After more than 11 years of marriage, Who Do You Think You Are? star, Ashley Judd, 44, and husband, Dario Franchitti, 39, have called it quits. Keep reading for more details.
In 2001, after two years of dating, Judd and racecar driver, Franchitti tied the knot in a private ceremony in Scotland. But now, according to People, the couple have released a statement saying, “We have mutually decided to end our marriage. We’ll always be family and continue to cherish our relationship based on the special love, integrity, and respect we have always enjoyed.”
Rumors recently circulated that Judd was considering a potential run for the Kentucky Senate. “I am incredibly honored and frankly overwhelmed by the outpouring of support — that the people of Kentucky are interested in having me represent them is the greatest honor of my life so far, and I am certainly taking a close look at it,” Judd said last week at The Kentucky Society of Washington’s Bluegrass Ball in Washington, D.C.. “The people of Kentucky need a fighter and certainly going back 10 generations, I’ve got some fighters from those hills in my family and as soon as I know anything — after I’ve told the family members to whom I’ve made my promises that they’ll be the first to know — you will be up to date in real time.”
No further details regarding Judd and Franchitti’s split have been released at this time. They have no children.
