Jean Claude Vann Damme to Divorce for 5th Time
Mon 23-03-2015

Jean-Claude van Damme is set to divorce his wife Gladys Portugues for a second time.

This will make it the 5th time the actor has been divorced, as he was previously married to Gladys once before, and also counts Maria Rodriguez, Cynthia Derderian and Darcy LaPier as his former spouses.

Paperwork filed at a Los Angeles court earlier this week showed Gladys requesting a divorce from her husband, 16 years after they remarried.

The documents cited "irreconcilable differences" as the reason for their split, and the initial date of Jean-Claude and Gladys' separation was listed as 7 March.

Gladys, who has two adult children Kristopher and Bianca with her estranged husband, is said to be seeking spousal support. She has also reportedly asked to no longer have Jean-Claude's real last name, which is Van Varenberg.

The documents also stated that former bodybuilder Gladys resides in Los Angeles while the Kickboxer star, 54, lives in Hong Kong.
