Well, I guess if the first and second times don't work out, there's always a third time to divorce your partner. That's exactly what's happening now that James Caan is divorcing his fourth wife Linda for the third time, E! News reports. Yes, you read that correctly. The actor has filed for divorce from his soon-to-be ex-wife for the THIRD time. This brings a whole new meaning to "third times a charm," right?
Apparently, James and Linda first married on Oct. 7, 1995. Then, per TMZ, he filed for divorce in 2005 and 2009. Each time they reconciled and got back together. The publication is also reporting the couple does not have a prenup. According to People which obtained the divorce papers that were filed on Jan. 8, James cited irreconcilable differences and is looking to terminate Linda's financial support. They have two sons, Jacob, 16, and James, 19. The Godfather actor is also seeking joint custody of Jacob.
This isn't the first time James has been married or divorced. He was previously married to Dee Jay Mattis from 1960 to 1966. Then, he tied the knot with Sheila Marie Ryan (who is actor Scott Caan's mother) from 1976 to 1977. Lastly, he was married to Ingrid Hajek from 1990 to 1995.
Whether this divorce will stick between James and Linda remains to be seen, but let's hope after 19 years of marriage they can find some peace of mind.
