Back on the Market: Thierry Henry
It’s been officially announced: Thierry Henry and his wife Claire are getting a divorce.
Is nothing sacred anymore? Regardless of how annoying the va-va-voom car ads were, we loved these two as a couple. They seemed so… normal. And now, in the name of normal relationships, they have fought like dogs, hate each other and are bitter.
Those in the know have been gossiping about the split since Thierry’s move to Barcelona began to look like a dead cert.
Last week Thierry was spotted getting close to two women at a 50 Cent concert in Paris, and he didn’t wear his wedding ring to Eva Longoria and Tony Parker’s wedding,(Claire didn’t attend, even though she is a close friend of the two). When in Paris Thierry also partied like only a single man worth millions can, for five days straight in casinos and nightclubs. He also recently moved out of the Hampstead house he shares with Claire and their two year old daughter Tea after a series of arguments and fights – he hasn’t been back since.
Claire is best known by her modelling name, Nicole Merry and will stay in the UK with their daughter.
When asked about the whole Barcelona/marriage situ, Thierry was quoted as saying “… lots of things have changed recently and I had to get away from everything English, including my wife unfortunately.“
