Fox Sports reports that professional golfer Jason Dufner is getting divorced from Amanda Dufner, his wife of three years. When Amanda filed divorce papers she said their marriage was “irretrievably” broken, citing, “a complete incompatibility of temperament that the parties can no longer live together,” as the reason she was seeking divorce.
According to the Golf Network, Amanda will receive a lump sum of $2.5 million and Jason will keep the two homes he owns in Alabama, including one that is currently under construction.
The couple married in 2012 after dating for three years.
While Amanda Dufner made out well in her divorce, the wife “CSI” star Jon Wellner—he plays Henry—might not fare as well in her divorce since her estranged hubby is telling her to get a job.
Jon Wellner filed for divorce this week, according to the TMZ, telling his wife Whitney Wellner that she needs to give up action. In his divorce documents, Jon said his wife hasn’t had an acting job in years and is asking the court to order her to get a full-time job so she can support herself.
TMZ believe she will ask for spousal support, stating that Jon makes $20, 000 an episode while her income is nearly zero.
