Things may be over between Ron Perlman and his wife of nearly 40 years, Opal Perlman, but the iconic Hellboy actor is still the loving dad of his two kids. For the last few decades, the 69-year-old has been juggling his life as a Hollywood star, a loving husband and the doting father of daughter Blake, 35, and son Brandon, 29.
Although some fans thought Ron and Opal would be together forever, the Sons of Anarchy star shocked the world when he filed for divorce from his longtime wife on Tuesday, November 5. The actor’s request for the dissolution of their marriage comes just months after Ron was first spotted smooching costar Allison Dunbar in May.
Fans were wondering about the status of Ron and Opal’s marriage after he was romantically linked with Allison, 42, for the second time on Sunday, November 3. Although the rumored pair are good friends, an eyewitness exclusively told In Touch Weekly they were getting extremely cozy while grabbing a bite to eat at the Soho Warehouse in Los Angeles.
“They definitely seem like an item,” the onlooker said of the twosome, adding that Ron even had his hand on his StartUp costar’s lap at one point during the meal. “[They were] very touchy-feely.” The insider also pointed out that the Golden Globe winner “wasn’t wearing a wedding ring” and his wife was nowhere in sight.
Before news made headlines that Ron — who tied the knot with Opal in 1981 — officially filed for divorce, a separate source suggested to In Touch that the longtime lovebirds have “what seems like an open relationship.” According to the insider, “Everyone thought Ron and his wife lived very separate lives.”
Although fans are heartbroken for the former couple’s kids, we wouldn’t be surprised if they just want their parents to be happy. Fans even wondered if there was more to Ron and Allison’s relationship after the blonde beauty shared a photo with him and his daughter, Blake, in April 2018.
“The Perlmans and the Dunbars,” the Crazy Ex-Girlfriend actress captioned a photo of her, Ron and Blake eating dinner at a fancy restaurant in Cleveland, Ohio. “Two dynasties collide over the avocado salad. Love my new friends a lot.”
