Divorcing: Ruud & Estelle Gullit
After 12 years of marriage and two kids together (Joelle and Maxim), Ruud and his third wife, Estelle, are headed to divorce court.
According Dutch newspaper De Telegraaf, the marriage was on the rocks for quite a while. Reportedly Ruud had several girlfriends when he worked as a trainer in Chechnya, and Estelle’s argument (who, mind you, is the granddaughter or niece of Johan Cruyff) is that she couldn’t stand for her elder hubby’s wandering eyes and hands anymore:
“Ruud with our children is a great father, but he can not stay away from other women. The list is long and it started when we were still engaged. Everything has a limit.”
For every argument there’s a counterargument, and Ruud’s is his future-ex-wife’s side piece, Badr Hari. He’s young Moroccan heavyweight kickboxing champion who was convicted of assaulting his ex-girlfriend in ’06. Needless to say, he and Ruud share some of the same bad-boy “you’re a jackass” qualities.
Our ‘baller divorce proceedings crystal ball predicts that someone will soon be legally obligated to cut spousal/child support payments to the other one on the reg.
