Reese Witherspoon is upset over the divorce from Jim Toth
According to a source, Reese Witherspoon never thought she would have to go through another divorce, but she and her husband, Jim Toth, are separating after 12 years of marriage. Witherspoon shares a 10-year-old son with Toth and has two other children with her ex-husband Ryan Phillippe.
The source reports that although Witherspoon is disappointed and upset, she and Toth are focused on co-parenting amicably, and their biggest priority is their son. The decision to divorce was made after “a great deal of care and consideration,” according to a joint statement from the couple.
The insider adds that Witherspoon and Toth are two very different people, with Witherspoon being headstrong and focused and Toth being more laid-back and hard-working. The source also reveals that Witherspoon’s busy work schedule made the couple spend less time together, contributing to their divorce. However, the insider emphasizes that the decision was not taken lightly and took a long time.
Witherspoon previously went through a divorce with Phillippe, which she described as a tough year that affected her personal life and career. Despite this, Witherspoon continued to produce TV shows and films through her production company Hello Sunshine, including Big Little Lies, Daisy Jones and The Six, and Where the Crawdads Sing. Witherspoon is also set to star in the upcoming season of The Morning Show.
Despite the difficulties, Witherspoon and Toth remain committed to co-parenting and move forward with deep love, kindness, and mutual respect. They ask for respect for their family’s privacy during this difficult time. A source close to the couple emphasizes that they are the best of friends and are committed to making the divorce as smooth as possible for everyone involved.
Witherspoon and Toth first met at a party in 2010, shortly after Witherspoon’s breakup with actor Jake Gyllenhaal. At the time, Toth was working as a talent agent. However, the couple’s relationship quickly progressed, and they were engaged by December of the same year. They tied the knot in March 2011 at Witherspoon’s ranch in Ojai, California, with a star-studded guest list that included Matthew McConaughey, Renée Zellweger, and Robert Downey Jr.
Witherspoon was married to actor Ryan Phillippe from 1999 to 2007, with whom she shares two children: daughter Ava and son Deacon. After her divorce from Phillippe, Witherspoon went on to date Gyllenhaal and actor/singer Joaquin Phoenix before meeting Toth. The couple welcomed their son, Tennessee James, in September 2012.
Throughout their marriage, Witherspoon and Toth often attended events and family vacations together, frequently supporting his wife’s career endeavors. However, their busy schedules reportedly led to spending less time together in recent months, ultimately deciding to separate.
