What Led to Jennifer and Bentley’s Divorce?
Even though the cause of their divorce was not clearly stated, sources reveal that Jennifer’s ex-husband battled with drug addiction for a long time and this also ruined their marriage. This started after he rose to stardom for his breakthrough movie American Beauty and it wasn’t long before he became so addicted.
Though married to Jennifer at the time, he managed to hide his addiction from her, and as their trouble continued, he later moved to an apartment where he could do drugs without being disturbed. Unfortunately, his addiction problems started interfering with his job and even led to his arrest and order into a 12-step program.
