Whoa. Seriously?

While news about Danny DeVito and Rhea Perlman‘s recent split was shocking to many, it had been a long time coming and his wife most certainly didn’t decide on it in haste.

Apparently, DeVito‘s marriage to the 64-year-old Emmy Award-winning actress had been “hanging by a thread” for “over 10 years,” mainly because of the 67-year-old actor-producer’s knack for flirting with other women.

A source close to the pair’s family told Radar Online:

“He may not appear to be a ladies’ man, but Danny certainly gets a lot of female attention.”

It’s true—Danny may not be one of the tallest sexiest men in Hollywood but he is definitely a well-recognized A-lister for his work in countless movies for over 35 years.

The insider continued:

Danny can be quite the flirt and because of his powerful status in Hollywood, he’s not ashamed to abuse his position and chat-up young, aspiring woman looking to make it in the industry.”

The source revealed of his “true” identity:

“Despite his reputation as a lovable, funny guy in movies and on TV, Danny’s actually quite the womanizer. And, like a lot of red-blooded males, if he sees an attractive girl in a coffee shop or walking down the street, he will give her the eye.”

The source then said:

“After years of turning a blind eye to it, Rhea finally snapped. She had enough of his bad-boy behavior and wanted an end to their marriage.”

We have to admit, it’s a little hard to imagine him as a “bad boy” but if this were true, we wouldn’t blame Rhea for wanting out.

Do you think the couple is really divorcing over Danny‘s “wandering eye”?
