Kate Beckinsale’s husband has been spotted around town with a much younger, hot model — and the reason is a real bummer.
Tongues started wagging when Beckinsale’s husband, Live Free or Die Hard director Len Wiseman, was seen on three separate occasions with CJ Franco (who looks oddly like Beckinsale, by the way), and he was not wearing his wedding ring. Several media outlets ran photos of the pair leaving a nightclub together in the wee hours of the morning.
A source finally confirmed to People that Beckinsale and Wiseman have been separated for several months.
“They are still friendly and spend time together in LA when Kate is there,” says the source, adding that “there has been no drama.
“It’s just not Kate’s style,” says the source. “They have both had complicated schedules and have grown apart.”
But despite Wiseman’s flagrant flaunting of his new girlfriend — who by all accounts is not a nanny, surprisingly enough — Beckinsale, who is currently in Prague filming Underworld 5, has no interest in doing the same.
“Kate is not dating and only focused on her daughter and work.”
The couple, who wed in 2004, does not have any children together, but Beckinsale has a daughter, Lily, with former partner Michael Sheen. And just because Wiseman will no longer be her legal stepfather doesn’t mean he doesn’t still care.
“[Wiseman’s] primary concern in all of this is Lily. He loves his stepdaughter and is there for her,” another insider said.
Beckinsale’s nine-year relationship with Sheen ended amid rumors of infidelity on her part, which she steadfastly denied.
Her last formal public appearance with Wiseman was at the Golden Globes in January 2015. The pair has not been spotted around town together since June and have not been photographed together since May.
