Rowan Atkinson divorces wife Sunetra
London’s Central Family Court has granted Sunetra Atkinson a divorce from 60-year-old Mr. Bean and Blackadder actor Rowan Atkinson on November 10. The makeup artist cited “unreasonable behavior” as her reason for divorcing the comedian, according to reports.
The proceeding, which was not attended by Rowan, took about a minute, and the district judge granted the 54-year-old Sunetra a decree nisi against her husband. The ex-couple had been married for 24 years, but have been separated since 2014.
Family Law Attorney Andrew Newbury said that although the case was “described as granting a divorce, it will not be final until Sunetra Atkinson applies for a decree absolute, which is the document legalizing the end of the couple’s marriage.”
