Does anyone else watch It’s Always Sunny In Philadelphia? It’s not one of my can’t-miss favorites or anything, but it’s funnier than most of the network comedies on TV right now, and Danny DeVito is great on the show – he plays the crazy, perverted criminal patriarch to a band of losers. I always thought that DeVito’s casting on the show was kind of genius – even though Danny has played a lot of losers and malcontents in his career, most people have the warm-fuzzies for him whenever they see him, and the IASIP character subverts that. Anyway, it turns out that Danny might actually be kind of sleazy in real life. Following the announcement that Danny and his wife of 30 years, Rhea Perlman, were separating, Radar claims that Danny’s had a wandering eye for YEARS. Gross.
Is nothing sacred? Danny DeVito’s shocking split from wife Rhea Perlman was due to his wandering eye, RadarOnline.com is exclusively reporting.
The It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia star’s wife of 30-years was finally fed up with the 67-year-old actor’s flirty and inappropriate ways and gave him the boot.
In fact, things have been bad between the pair for over 10-years with the marriage hanging by a thread.
“He may not appear to be a ladies’ man, but Danny certainly gets a lot of female attention,” a source close to the family told RadarOnline.com. “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. Despite his reputation as a lovable, funny guy in movies and on TV, Danny’s actually quite the womanizer. And, 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.”
“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 break-up has been on the cards for a long time, probably over 10 years, because they haven’t been happy for a long, long time,” the source revealed.
As RadarOnline.com previously reported, Danny and Rhea announced Monday that they have separated after 30-years together.
The pair married in 1982 and have three kids: Lucy Chet, Grace Fan and Jacob Daniel.
Danny and Rhea worked together on the classic sitcom Taxi from 1978-1983 and later appeared onscreen in 1996’s Matilda. In 1992, they founded Jersey Films. Their production company was responsible for a number of successful movies, including Pulp Fiction, Garden State, Erin Brockovich and Freedom Writers.
So, now you know. Danny DeVito still gets side-action from lots of women. Is it gross because he’s married or because he’s Danny DeVito? Or both? Well, I’m not ready to bury true love yet. Danny and Rhea weren’t one of my “couples that can never break up”. My Couples That Can Never Breakup include Tom Hanks & Rita Wilson, Emma Thompson & Greg Wise, Angelina Jolie & Brad Pitt, and Kevin Bacon & Kyra Sedgwick. I will seriously LOSE IT if Emma and Greg ever split up, or if I suddenly find out that one of them is a cheater.
