Girls Gone Wild creep Joe Francis got “married” to his female doppleganger, entertainment reporter Christina McLarty, in a lavish ceremony at his Mexico estate this November. Francis and McLarty entered into a “civil domestic partnership” officiated by Kevin Huvane of Creative Artists Agency in front of 200 guests including a bunch of Kardashians. They explained at the time that they weren’t getting traditionally married because same sex couples didn’t have the right, and issued a statement claiming “we don’t believe it’s appropriate to be married until our gay and lesbian friends are afforded the same rights as us to legally marry in the United States.” Well it may have saved them a lot of trouble, because Francis and McLarty were kaput after less than a month together as man and wife. Radar reports that she moved out shortly after Thanksgiving.
Less than two months after Joe Francis and long-term girlfriend Christina McLarty married in a civil ceremony at his luxurious Mexican retreat, the pair have split, RadarOnline.com has exclusively learned.
“Joe Francis’ wife moved out, and they might be getting a divorce,” a source close to the couple told RadarOnline.com exclusively.
A rep for Francis denied the story to RadarOnline.com on Tuesday.
But the source who is very close to the situation said Christina “moved out of their Bel Air home and into her mother’s house.”
It is not known if she has been staying with her mother temporarily, but the split was an open secret among many of Francis’ pals.
After a four year courtship with the CBS reporter, 37 year-old Francis popped the question in San Tropez while on vacation. In November, the pair had a lavish wedding ceremony at his Punta Mita estate. But their marriage was short lived, and Francis was overheard discussing his separation with close friends at Bruce and Kris Jenner’s annual Christmas eve party.
“He was talking about the details of the separation openly while at the Kardashian holiday party,” our source explained.
“Christina moved out a bit after Thanksgiving.”
At least she got out. I’m more surprised to hear that they dated for a full four years. It must take incredibly low self esteem, and high levels of delusion and masochism to put up with the king of all douches for that long. Once she was looking at a lifetime with the guy, even those long held defenses broke down and McLarty faced reality and split. I wonder what prompted the breakup and if there was abuse, cheating or both involved. Not much would shock me about Francis.
