Valerie Bertinelli is divorcing her husband of ten years.
Tom Vitale and Valerie Bertinelli are supposedly no longer together. Bertinelli filed for legal separation from her spouse on Wednesday, according to the Blastreport. On January 1, 2011, the two married in Malibu, California.
Bertinelli has merely filed for divorce at this point, according to the Blast. When they are legally separated, each party’s finances will be deemed separate as well. Bertinelli’s reason for filing for divorce is unknown at this time. Bertinelli’s ex-husband is a financial advisor, television producer, and the founder and CEO of the e-commerce company Veebow.
Bertinelli previously stated that her brother, Patrick, introduced her to Vitale in 2004. Bertinelli and Vitale both spoke to AARP about their relationship in 2010. Vitale, who is the father of four children from a previous marriage, stated, “Val and I had been through a difficult period and wanted to move on, but we didn’t want to trust anyone. We had just perfectly understood each other. My family is the same as hers. It wasn’t love at first sight that drew them together; it was family.” Bertinelli also stated in the interview that she had no plans to marry again after her divorce from the late Eddie Van Halen. Bertinelli and Van Halen married in 1981 and divorced in 2007. They have a son named Wolfgang. “I thought to myself after Ed and I divorced, “I’ll finish raising my son, then move away, have about 40 cats, and just grow nice and fat.” Because I didn’t want the burden, I assumed I’d be alone for the rest of my life “AARP spoke with Bertinelli. “Relationships are far too difficult.” Bertinelli and Van Halen did break up, although they remained friends until Van Halen’s death in October 2020. In 2011, Van Halen even attended the wedding of his ex-wife to Vitale. Following the rock star’s passing, the Food Network presenter expressed her anguish over the loss. She added, in part, on Instagram Live earlier this year, “We had some extremely stressful and difficult periods, but we also had some really lovely days. And the nice thing about sadness – the gift it provides you – is that it’s so much easier to remember the good moments with that person than it is to remember the trying and difficult ones.”
