"Helen had trust issues with Matt," a source spilled "She was convinced that he was cheating on her," The National ENQUIRER
learned from a source. "Helen had it with all his sneaking around and she's ready to make him pay by keeping him away from their daughter."
Insiders dished that Helen had tossed Matt out of the house on multiple occasions over the nearly two decades they were together. Friends said Makena may have been the only reason the couple, shown here with actress Sharon Lawrence, stayed together.
"Matthew was a good dad and Helen didn't want her daughter to grow up without a father figure," the source confessed. "But after years of suspicions about Matt, Helen didn't see the point of continuing the charade."
"Matt has his problems, but Helen's not easy either," the source spilled. "It's actually surprising to a lot of people that it lasted this long."
