Johnny English Reborn actor Rowan Atkinson has left his wife of 24 years Sunetra Sansri for someone younger. In February 2014, last year, he filed for divorce from his long time wife. On November 10, 2015 it was confirmed that he and Sunetra are no longer a married couple and officially divorced in what is said to be in only 65 seconds. Before filing for divorce in 2014, Rowan started seeing then 31 year old actress Louise Ford who is best known for starring on “Fast Girls” (2012) as Jane, and has reportedly been seeing her for the past 18 months betraying his heartbroken wife. Sunetra and Rowan first tied the knot in 1990 and have two beautiful children together Lily and Benjamin Atkinson aged 22 and 20.
The reason for their divorce is the 60 year old’s “unreasonable behaviour”. According to sources, Atkinson was absent on the day of the divorce in London’s court proceeding and his now ex wife in her late 50’s was granted a decree nisi because of the Comedian actor’s “unreasonable behavior.” For those of you who do not know what Decree Nisi is, it’s a document which says that the court does not see any reason on why one cannot divorce. Even if your husband or wife does not agree to the divorce, you are still allowed to for it. It’s unknown why he chose to skip the important day of his life, when that’s what he wanted from the beginning. Could it be, that he couldn’t face his wife and was too ashamed for his behavior, or because he didn’t care?
All that doesn’t matter now, because Rowan Atkinson is currently a single man and dating 32 year old actress Louise Ford. The English actor is currently busy filming a new project “Maigret’s Dead Man” where he plays the lead role of Jules Maigret.
