Reese Witherspoon’s mother is suing her father for bigamy, after finding out he had married a woman while still married to her!
Betty and John have reportedly been separated since 1996 but have never officially divorced.
In the lawsuit, Betty, 60, claims she still loves her 70-year-old husband John and worries he may be suffering from dementia.
Betty, who is trying to have Tricianne and John’s marriage annulled, stated in her affadavit, “When I confronted my husband, he said he didn’t know who Tricianne Taylor was and that he did not remember getting married. I also fear for my husband’s personal safety and the safety of my family.”
Reese’s mother has obtained a restraining order against Tricianne, and has asked the court to make sure Taylor returns any vehicles, jewelry or other property she has acquired since her marriage to John.
The order also states, “You are hereby enjoined and restrained from using or attempting to use the last name Witherspoon for any purpose.”
If this story isn’t crazy enough, Betty’s friends told her they saw John with Tricianne at an Octoberfest event and that he even attempted to bring her to Reese’s wedding to Jim Toth in California.
“The security officers at the wedding refused to let her in because she was not on the guest list,” according to the affidavit.
Tricianne was confronted by Betty but would not speak to her or respond to a letter telling her John is still married.
Betty also revealed Taylor is living in a Nashville condo owned by Reese Witherspoon, and that she has gotten him to change his will.
Wow! Talk about some family drama!
