Patrick Dempsey and Wife Jillian Officially Call Off Their Divorce

Patrick Dempsey and his wife Jillian have been granted the request  of dismissal of the divorce petition after 15 years of marriage.

“It is with careful consideration and mutual respect that we have decided to end our marriage,” the couple said in a statement then.. “Our primary concern remains the wellbeing of our children, and we ask with profound gratitude that you respect our family’s privacy at this very sensitive time.”

Makeup artist Jillian Fink had cited “irreconcilable differences” and had seeked joint custody of the couple’s 12-year old daughter and 7-year-old twin boys.

The 50-year-old actor and his wife reconciled this year and the couple's divorce papers were dismissed from court on November 4, and the judge granted it less than a week later, on November 10.
