Actor Patrick Dempsey, 49 and his estranged wife, Jillian “Jill” Fink, 40 have reportedly sold their home at Malibu for $15 million. The former couple announced their split earlier this year, after Fink filed for divorce on 23 January, 2015 due to irreconcilable differences. In a joint announcement, they said “It is with careful consideration and mutual respect that we have decided to end our marriage”. They also said that they wanted the best for their children and asked for privacy.
Dempsey was born to parents Amanda and William. He has two siblings, both sisters. Dempsey is widely known for his role as Dr. Derek Shepherd on Shonda Rhimes’ hit show, Grey’s Anatomy. Dempsey recently departed from the show after his character dies. Fink and Dempsey split soon after his departure from the show. Rumors that sparked following Dempsey’s departure said that he was involved with a younger woman on the set of Grey’s Anatomy. Furthermore, they suggested that Fink filed for divorce as a result of her husband’s affair. It was rumored that Ellen Pompeo conveyed the news of Dempsey’s affair to Fink. Pompeo is Dempsey’s co-star in Grey’s Anatomy and a good friend of Fink. However, Dempsey denied the rumors later, calling them ‘ridiculous.’ And his relationship with Pompeo “very good.”
Jillian works as a makeup artist. Dempsey and Fink tied the knot in 31 July, 1999. They have three children together, twin boys Sullivan Patrick and Darby Galen, age 8 and daughter Tallulah Fyfe, age 13. It has been reported that Fink has filed for custody and wants spousal and child support. Fink might get half of the couple’s wealth (as per California Law) since the ex- couple had not signed a pre-nuptial agreement. Dempsey’s estimated net worth is $40 million.
Both Dempsey and Fink seem to be whole heartedly supporting their children. They were spotted at their son’s soccer game in March, just two months after Fink filed for divorce. Despite their differences, they do seem to be supporting their family. Fink often posts pictures of her daughter and sons on Instagram.
While Fink has only been married once, this was Dempsey’s second marriage. He was married to actress Rochelle “Rocky” Parker from 1987 to 1995. Dempsey is 27 years younger than Parker.
According to his bio in Wikipedia, Dempsey is currently focusing on FIA World Endurance Championship. Dempsey has been racing cars since the early 2000s as a hobby but in 2014, Dempsey said that racing was more than a hobby and a part of who he is. His departure from Grey’s Anatomy has given him more time to focus on racing. He has his own teams: Dempsey Racing and Dempsey Racing-Proton. He often updates his achievements and other racing related activities via twitter.
