Did Misha Collins and Wife Victoria Vantoch Split? What We Know
Supernatural famed actor Misha Collins was married to Victoria Vantoch, a historian and journalist.
However, it now seems like the longtime couple has ended their marriage and is no longer living together.
The news of their separation first came out in July 2021 after the announcement of Collins’ poetry collection Some Things I Still Can’t Tell You.
Later released in October, the book revealed that he and his wife, Vicki Vantoch, had separated after thirty years together.
Misha Collins Has Not Officially Confirmed Split with His Wife
Speaking of his poems that hinted at his separation, in one poem titled ‘IN PASSING,’ he wrote, “I’m alone in San Francisco. And this morning, a man walked past me on a steep hillside sidewalk...”
“And, passing, he said the words, ‘Don’t be lonely. Be HAPPY,’” he later added.
But even though Collins implied in his book that he separated from his longtime wife, he has not come forward and confirmed the split officially.
Because of that, it is unclear if they had a divorce for real or not.
Fans React to the Divorce News
Oh No They Didn’t was probably the first live journal outlet to cover Collins and his wife Vantoch’s separation.
The story was published, citing the actor’s poetry collection as the source for the information.
The story received massive attention from fans as they commented on their thoughts on the news.
“Still sad about this after the news broke last night. There had been rumors for a while but like most of fandom, I dismissed them. But a lot of things (like Misha not being as home as much, and staying at Richard Speight Jr.’s house in LA for a while) make sense now,” one explained the whole scenario.
Another added, “I can’t even imagine the stress that being a working actor puts on a marriage, especially when you’re living apart for 9 months out of every year for over a decade like Misha & Vicki.”
“No. It’s not. This is the first I’ve heard about it. I’m gutted,” Misha’s Supernatural co-star Jared Padalecki also tweeted in disbelief.
There is also a Reddit thread where fans have discussed the topic of “Misha’s getting divorced?” for the last five months.
One user on the platform stated they saw Collins’ acknowledgment in his book, saying that he and his wife had separated.
They also added the couple could rekindle their romance since they were only “separated” and not “divorced.”
“I had a feeling that was the case, but was hoping I was wrong. They’ve been living in two different states for at least a year now,” another stated.
