ASHLEY JUDD is trying to get her marriage to race-car driver Dario Franchitti back on track, but the rekindled romance may crash and burn if Ashley’s meddling mom, Naomi, doesn’t stop getting in their way!
The “Kiss the Girls” actress, 45, and her 40-year-old IndyCar racer hubby split last January after 12 years of marriage. But Ashley rushed back to Dario’s side after he was seriously injured in a horrific crash at the Houston Grand Prix in October.
While Ashley has largely kept quiet about the reconciliation, mom Naomi can’t seem to keep her mouth shut, recently telling an interviewer: “They are madly in love. And they are bonded for life.”
Ashley was furious, said a friend.
“Ashley is desperately trying to repair her marriage out of the public eye, and her mother is sticking her nose into it and telling the world what’s going on with them,” the friend explained.
Dario’s also fed up with being caught in the middle of the ongoing Judd family drama.
As The ENQUIRER exclusively reported in our Jan. 13 issue, Ashley was awarded temporary custody of sister Wynonna’s 17-year-old daughter Grace, who has been butting heads with her mom for years.
Meanwhile, Dario was forced to retire from racing after the crash, and he “wanted to stay clear of all the drama and back-biting, but he’s getting dragged right back into it again,” said another source.
“He still loves Ashley, but having to deal with this explosive Judd family dynamic has left him feeling he’s better off just going it alone.”
