Rowan Atkinson & His Wife Of 24 Years Divorce In 65-Second Proceeding — His ‘Unreasonable Behavior’ To Blame

Mr. Bean and Sunetra Sastry

Another love lost.

Rowan Atkinson AKA Mr. Bean and his wife Sunetra Sastry separated last year after being married since 1990. The comedian has reportedly been dating 32-year-old actress Louise Ford for the past 18 months — all while still married.

On Tuesday, Miz Sastry was granted a decree nisi divorce (meaning, not final) after a quick 65-second proceeding due to the 60-year-old ex’s “unreasonable behavior.” The Blackadder star wasn’t present in court.

No details were released as to the behavior in question, but we can only assume…

Andrew Newbury of the Slater and Gordon law firm told the Telegraph:

“Unreasonable behavior is the most common ground for divorce. Even in the happiest of marriages, it’s always possible to find behavior which can be described as unreasonable. Although described as granting a divorce, the divorce itself won’t be made final until Sunetra Atkinson applies for the decree absolute. She can do that six weeks after today. She may well be advised by her lawyers to delay the application until the financial settlement has been agreed. It could be many months before the divorce is final.”

The former pair share two children Benjamin, 22, and daughter Lily, 20.

Le sigh.
