Hold up! It seems as though Clint Eastwood's estranged wife has had a change of heart. It has been revealed that just two days after Dina Eastwood filed for legal separation from the Oscar-winning actor and director, 83, on Sept. 9, she went back and filed another document to dismiss their legal separation on Sept. 11.
Us Weekly first broke news in late August that the couple -- married for 17 years -- decided to separate. The two split more than a year before, in June 2012, but remained "amicable" with each other. "Clint fell out of love with Dina a long time ago," an insider previously revealed. The two have one daughter together, 16-year-old Morgan.
The former newscaster, 48, filed papers for a separation in Monterey County Superior Court on Sept. 9. In the document, she sought spousal support and physical custody of Morgan -- though they would share legal custody. The notes also revealed that the couple would divide community and separate property as laid out in their "premarital agreement."
Though no other information has been immediately given on why the sudden change, Dina's actions toward the Hollywood legend in the wake of their split could shed some light on the situation. Dina defended the Million Dollar Baby director shortly after their split was revealed. "I don't like reading negative things about Clint," she tweeted on Sept. 3. "He is a wonderful, good natured, brilliant person. No matter what, I attest to that."
Clint has yet to comment about their split, but has certainly moved on. On the very same day that Dina decided to change her filing, the Gran Torino actor was photographed in L.A. with his new girlfriend, Erica Tomlinson-Fisher. In quite the twist, Tomlinson-Fisher just so happened to be married until 2012 to Dina's friend, University of Hawaii basketball coach Scott Fisher, for 33 years.
"After Scott and Erica divorced, Erica was sure Scott was romancing Dina," a source told Us. "Erica called Clint's office last February to discuss her suspicions -- then he fell for her!" Since then, Dina and Scott have been casually dating themselves.
