It turns out that Danny DeVito and wife Rhea Perlman might not have been as happy as we all thought they were.
The couple of 30 years made the surprising announcement yesterday that they are going to be separated, but sources tell Radar Online that it shouldn't come as that much of a shock. Apparently DeVito, 67, is something of a womanizer and Perlman has had enough of it.
"He may not appear to be a ladies’ man, but Danny certainly gets a lot of female attention," the source says. "Danny can be quite the flirt and because of his powerful status in Hollywood, he’s not ashamed to abuse his position and chat-up young, aspiring woman looking to make it in the industry."
Anyone who's seen It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia knows that DeVito can play something of a skeeze, but this source says that the behavior translates offscreen as well. This person close to their family says that DeVito and Perlman haven't been happy for "probably over 10 years" and that divorce is a long time coming.
"Like a lot of red-blooded males, if he sees an attractive girl in a coffee shop or walking down the street, he will give her the eye," the source explains. "After years of turning a blind eye to it, Rhea finally snapped. She had enough of his bad-boy behavior and wanted an end to their marriage."
The couple married in 1982. They have three children: Lucy Chet, Grace Fan and Jacob Daniel.
