Some sources claim that Kit Frederiksen is an actor but the man has been the center of the media just as an alleged-husband of Perdita Weeks, a British actress. Weeks is widely known for her portrayal of Juliet Higgins on the TV series Magnum P.I. that airs on CBS.
The accomplished performer has also deserved credit for her work on many other highly acclaimed films including blockbuster Ready Player One (2018).
Let’s confirm is Perdita’s marriage to spouse Kit is real? We also try to explore many other hidden facts about Frederiksen you are looking for!
Kit Frederiksen is actually not Perdita Weeks’ husband: How?
We don’t know how the tabloids created such false rumors about Perdita and Kit’s marriage. Sources reported the actress is happily married to Frederiksen for nearly seven years now. And they are raising two twin sons named Humphrey Carrington Frederiksen and Rupert Sebastian Frederiksen together.
But in reality, there is no one Kit Frederiksen who is Perdita Weeks’ hubby. If you are still dubious with us once take a close look at her twitter post in which Perdita clearly denied all the speculations about her marriage and children. She wrote,
“When you have to spend your Monday morning reporting the myriad false mentions on the internet of your “husband” and “children”. You’d think I would remember getting married and birthing twin boys…,” the actress added the hashtag “#oldfakenews.”
Therefore, it’s clear neither Weeks isn’t in any kind of matrimonial relationship nor Frederiksen is her hubby.
Who is Kit Frederiksen? Perdita’s co-star Ben Feldfam is depicted as her Husband
As we have already mentioned above there isn’t a single clue that relates Kit Frederiksen to Perdita Weeks. The same can be said on the guy’s identity as there is zero information about him on the internet. The man is just in the limelight as a life partner of Perdita.
While moving towards his wrong images, a number of sources that added the photo of Perdita’s husband is actually Ben Feldman, her As Above, So Below‘s co-star. It’s a blunder mistake as Ben is already married to Michelle Mulitz for years and his images wrongly taken as Weeks’ spouse.
They worked together in the horror movie As Above. Ben played Perdita’s ex-boyfriend George while the actress appeared as Scarlett Marlowe, a very accomplished scholar on the project. But in real life, they are just good colleagues.
