Screen legend HARRISON FORD and his screenwriter wife MELISSA MATHISON are to end their 18-year marriage - once seen as Hollywood's strongest. The ET writer has filed for divorce, citing the star's "wild partying and drinking" as the cause.
The 58-year-old star has been seen cuddling with a string of younger women, including movie icon JACK NICHOLSON's girlfriend LARA FLYNN BOYLE. According to friends Melissa, 49, felt "humiliated every time".
Lawyers will split their estimated $200 million (£153 million) fortune but they will share custody of children MALCOLM, 14 and 11- year-old GEORGIA. A friend of Mathison's says, "Ford is going through a mid-life crisis. Melissa cannot handle it anymore. " (TM/WNE/IG)
