“Nobody knows where they might end up.” the line in Grey’s Anatomy came true for the show’s star Ellen Pompeo.
“The truth is, they grew apart and have seemingly been living separate lives for a while. They also alleged that the “shocking” move was actually a long time coming” said an unnamed insider to ‘Ok!’ when asked about where Ellen Pompeo and husband Chris Ivery’s marriage were headed.
Though the interracial couple had kept their media presence fairly frequent, people especially tabloids like the Globe could tell the absence of romance. Was it because Ivery was earning less than his wife (Pompeo had claimed a $5 million raise on her $20 million paychecks to work on Grey’s Anatomy) or was it because the actress was getting close to her former co-star Patrick Dempsey? As New Idea claimed in November.
“Ellen and Chris may be going through growing pains right now, but they’re devoted to their kids. No matter what happens, they’re committed to co-parenting,” said Gossip Cop despite the media being sexist and racist about the couples’ divorce news.
Opposites attract worked well for the couple for 13 years now but the large estate of 85 million dollars and three children at stake made the couple “play nice” during a divorce that could have been nasty.
