It seems divorce is contagious at the moment, and Jennifer Jason Leigh is the next to go, apparently. Â She just had a baby seven months ago, and already Leigh is out the door and ready to make a break from her husband, director Noah Baumbach. Â The couple had been married for five years, and had been together for nearly a decade.
The fact that they were starting a family makes the timing a bit weird, so there’s some speculation as to why there was such a sudden change of heart. Â Leigh has asked the court for custody of the child, as well as spousal support for herself. Â I’m confused – doesn’t she already have a lot more money than Baumbach?
