Ron Perlman looked loved up as he celebrated his much younger girlfriend’s birthday by soaking up the sun with her at a Californian resort – less than one year after filing for divorce from his wife of 38 years, exclusive DailyMailTV photos show.
The 70-year-old is still dating 48-year-old actress Allison Dunbar, who sources say caused his marriage to Opal Stone to end.
Perlman, best known for the TV series Beauty and The Beast and the Hellboy series of films, treated Dunbar to a luxury birthday weekend at the Rosewood Miramar Resort in Montecito, California last weekend.
The couple with a 22-year age gap were seated by the pool, taking turns rubbing lotion on each other and sharing kisses, an eyewitness told DailyMailTV.
At one point Perlman grinned up at his thong bikini-clad girlfriend, clearly enjoying the day – and the view.
A source said: ‘Ron and Allison were celebrating Allison’s 48th birthday and the weekend getaway was Ron’s romantic gift to his lady.
‘Allison was looking very sexy in a bright red thong bikini and she seemed intent on rubbing lotion all over her man.
‘They looked as if they only had eyes for each other as they conducted a full make out session with each other in the pool.
‘Ron and Allison seemed very much in love and Ron couldn’t take his eyes off her as she strutted around the pool, showing off her ample curves,’ says the source.
The pair, who met while starring in the series The StartUp, were first spotted together at a Los Angeles restaurant in November 2018.
They were hugging and kissing, despite the fact Perlman was still married to Opal.
‘Ron and Opal have two sons,’ the source said. ‘And yet, when he and Allison were caught together, he seemed very taken with her.
‘They were spotted together again, sharing an embrace in May 2019, and by November of 2019, Ron had filed for divorce and they were off on a romantic Mexican vacation.’
The Perlmans were married on Valentine’s Day, 1981.
And ironically, Allison was named in divorce papers that claim she slept with a famous NFL player on the day of his marriage, on Valentines Day in 2004.
Allison was named in the divorce of her once best friend actress Rosa Blasi and her New York Giants football player husband, Jim Finn.
The papers not only accused Allison of sleeping with Jim on his wedding day, they claimed she also made out with NFL star Peyton Manning that same night – even though he attended Finn’s wedding with his wife of three years, Ashley Thompson.
Blasi revealed details of the sordid story during a 2011 interview with CNN’s Anderson Cooper.
‘It’s no doubt Ron and Allison are headed for the alter,’ the source added. ‘They are crazy about each other.’
