Lauren, whose wild sex-texting affair with Jeff preceded his breakup with MacKenzie — formally announced via Twitter the morning of Jan. 9 — called in a lawyer last November to handle her own high-profile split.
A mother of three, Lauren has been married since 2005 to Hollywood mogul Patrick Whitesell, whose A-list clients include Matt Damon, Ben Affleck, Michelle Williams, Christian Bale, Hugh Jackman and Ryan Reynolds, according to US Weekly.
“Lauren and Patrick consulted Laura Wasser to mediate their divorce,” a source told Radar. “They want to do it very privately and amicably.”
As for Jeff’s divorce, the mega-billionaire’s biological aunt told The ENQUIRER Jan. 10 that she expects MacKenzie — his wife of 25 years and mother to their four children, ages 13 to 18 — “to take him to the cleaners!”
The split could prove to be the biggest in divorce-court history as they split a fortune valued as high sa $160 billion that includes a $23 million museum in Washington D.C., two Beverly Hills mega mansions, a massive Texas ranch, multi-million-dollar New York City apartments and an estate in Washington state.
