James’s Parents Divorced after two decades of marriage
Thomas and his wife Christine initially exchanged vows on April 3rd, 1993 in a small wedding. Not much is known about the beginning of their relationship but we can guess they must’ve started dating around the late ’80s or the early ’90s.
For the major part of their relationship, the couple lived in San Antonio and Charleston, North Carolina. Through thick and thin, the pair persevered and went on to become one of the most blessed couples in the industry.
Nonetheless, it all came to a standstill when out of nowhere they dropped the bomb. In 2011, the lovebirds announced they were separating, “amicably.” Thomas filed for divorce in 2014, and after a year of battle, they finally came to a settlement in 2015. But it wasn’t until the year 2018 when they were officially separated.
What was the reason behind their divorce?
Whenever a celebrity gets divorced, the media would want to scour every inch of information to find out why. Likewise, after their separation, several tabloids claimed Christine separated from Thomas after he cheated on her.
In 2013, a woman claimed she and Thomas had been in a relationship for two years then. This led many of us to believe there indeed was cheating. But as it turned out, the woman had catfished the actor as he himself claimed to be the victim.
Afterward, the woman in question also provided a couple of pictures of Thomas where he was seen bathing in the tub. On the contrary, Gibson claimed the photos were all heavily edited, and at the time when he first interacted with that woman, he was already separated from his wife.
