The couple’s rep, Stan Rosenfield, confirmed their separation by sharing the news with Entertainment Tonight, although no reason for the break-up has been given. The Examiner reported that Perlman attended her 30th anniversary of the sitcom Cheers this past weekend without DeVito by her side.
DeVito and Perlman were married on January 28, 1982 and have three children together: Lucy Chet, Grace Fan, and Jacob Daniel.
LaughSpin reported that DeVito (It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia, Taxi, Matilda) and Perlman (Cheers) met in 1970 when Perlman attended the Broadway show The Shrinking Bride where DeVito was also a star in the show.
After two weeks, the couple moved in together. In 1983, DeVito said that Perlman was “vibrant, with a great sense of humor, and real warm,” and Perlman told People Magazine that DeVito “was a lot more fun and a lot more sexy” than suitors of the past, The Huffington Post reported.
After 30 years, I’m sure the word of this divorce was a shock to everyone. Hollywood marriages usually last no where near as long as DeVito and Perlman’s marriage.
