Jim Belushi and Jennifer Sloan's Divorce
On August 6, 2021, TMZ exclusively reported that Belushi and his third wife, Jennifer Sloan, are getting divorced. According to the reports, Belushi filed the papers at the Los Angeles County Superior Court on the same day.
This is not the first time the couple tried to separate from one another. On March 5, 2018, Sloan filed for divorce from her spouse, citing irreconcilable differences.
She appealed for spousal support and joint custody of their youngest child, Jared. However, the pair reconsidered the divorce, and 13 months later, Belushi filed an appeal to dismiss the case.
The pair got back a few days before their 21st wedding anniversary, and it looked like the couple was going strong after reconciliation. Sloan and Belushi first met each other in 1993.
Back then, she worked as a jewelry store clerk. Sloan knew the actor was the one after their second date. Their first date was not how she envisioned, since Belushi kissed her on her forehead, making her feel like his sister.
Regardless, the duo went on a second date where everything went smoothly. They went rollerblading, and since that day, Sloan liked the actor a lot. She found him "real," and then the pair slowly started falling in love.
Fast forward to five years later, and the pair tied the knot on May 2, 1998. Soon, they also became parents to two beautiful children — daughter Jamison and son Jared.
