Actress Lauren Weedman just dropped a major bombshell about her ex-husband!
In a new interview with the New York Post, the 47-year-old alleges that her former spouse had an affair with their son Leo's 18-year-old nanny — which she discovered after they began living apart.
“When 'David' accidentally left his laptop at my place, I didn’t think anything of turning it on,” Lauren, who changed the names of her ex and his mistress for privacy, tells the paper.
“The computer had belonged to me, and I wanted to make sure I hadn’t left any important videos — such as Leo’s birth — behind. But the oldest video on 'David’s' computer wasn’t one of Leo splashing in the bathtub. It was of our babysitter, 'Simone,' sans clothes — and it was dated 2011, a year before 'David' and I had even gotten married.”
Lauren, who describes herself as the "primary breadwinner" in the relationship, explains "David" was the one who recommended they hire the teen, an aspiring actress whom he had mentored.
“She would show up in low-cut tops and miniskirts, but I thought that was just because girls are so overly sexualized in Southern California," the Looking star continues. "When a friend of mine told me that she had spotted them together in the street, I assumed they were discussing her career.”
Lauren says that after she found the video, she immediately called up "Simone" to tell her, "You’re not babysitting today. You’re never babysitting Leo again."
“It’s every woman’s nightmare, and it can happen to anyone — just look at Jennifer Garner and Ben Affleck,” the author shares. “It comes down to the fact this whole manhood thing is tough. Feeling like a man, being a money earner, being the one who takes control — I thought they were clichés."
It's been two years since the split, and Lauren claims "David" is still in a romantic relationship with "Simone."
When the New York Post reached out to "David" for a comment, he said, "The only thing I would say is that Lauren is a writer and a storyteller who, like many, combines truth with fiction in her art as a way of getting to a deeper truth."
