Elle and Dakota Fanning's parents have officially called it QUITS after 25 years of marriage
As their daughters rose to stardom, Heather and Steven have confirmed their divorce for the second time but this time there won't be any reconciliation.
Dakota and Elle Fanning's parents, Steve and Heather, are now officially restored to their status of singlehood as per the court's ruling on August 24. The actresses' parents, both 51, have been married for almost 25 years, and the two parties have settled in a private "marital settlement agreement" which they are both bound to abide by.
In 2016, Steven Fanning had filed for a divorce from wife Heather citing their irreconcilable differences as the chief cause for the split. The couple, however, reconciled later. Sadly, this time, it seems the couple has taken a final call on their marriage since the court documents obtained by People state; "marital or domestic partnership status is terminated, and the parties are restored to the status of single persons."
None of the parties have sought child support since their daughters have already come of age, Dakota is 24-year-old while Elle is 20-year-old. However, since the agreement has not been disclosed, it is not yet clear if either party had to transfer or pay anything for the private negotiation. Both Elle and Dakota, have yet not commented on their parents' divorce. They are currently busy with work commitments.
Elle, who played the 16-year-old Mary Wollstonecraft Shelley in Haifaa al-Mansour's 'Mary Shelley,' is now preparing for the sequel to her 2014 movie 'Maleficent.'
In a recent Instagram post, the 20-year-old actress shared a picture with her onscreen Godmother, Angelina Jollie, on the sets of 'Maleficent 2'. Captioning the picture as, "It's bring your mom to work day on the #Maleficent2 set!!!!! ✌🏼" the two actresses appearing to be chilling in their costumes and shades.
Meanwhile, Dakota has been busy with her show 'The Alienist,' which is based on the bestselling psychological thriller by Caleb Carr. Marking the release of Season 2 which has been titled as 'Angel of Darkness,' Dakota posted a short video on her Instagram handle, captioning it as, "ROUND 2 BABY!!!!!!!
