The marriages of Ron White have been a string of bad things.
Ron White has always taken pleasure in receiving praise and honors. His life isn’t all that glitters, though, once the camera is turned off and he returns to reality. Although none of the three marriages the whiskey enthusiast has been in can be described as “happily ever after,”
First Two Marriages of White
On August 1, 1981, in Caldwell County, Texas, the 63-year-old stand-up comedian made his entrance down the aisle with Lori A Brice. At the time, White was 24 and Brice was 19. Before calling it quits on their marriage in 1993, the couple had a son named Marshal White.
Nine years later, Barbara Dobbs, an interior designer by trade, and White exchanged wedding vows. The comedian and his ex-wife Dobbs shared an apartment in Atlanta until purchasing a $3.75 million single-story home with an ocean view in Montecito in 2006. Yet just two years later, in 2008, they parted ways as fate had other plans for them.
A third bad luck
On October 13, 2013, White wed singer-songwriter Margo Rey after two failed marriages. Yet, only four years after they exchanged wedding vows, this marriage too terminated in divorce.
Rey said that her spouse abandoned her while she was in cancer remission, which caused the divorce to become sour. The 53-year-old said that White abruptly cancelled her credit card during the divorce. Also, the popular singer said that White altered the locks on their house.
But, the comedian said that because they never agreed on prenuptial terms, he wasn’t actually married to the singer. The Texas constitution recognizes Rey’s marriage to White as common law because they cohabited as husband and wife, and a LA judge decided to rule in Rey’s favor.
Payments of White’s Spousal Support Were Affected by COVID-19
After the agreement, White eventually agreed to begin paying his ex-wife, who is Mexican, $25,000 per month beginning in November 2019. Yet the coronavirus outbreak limited his options financially. The comedian’s engagements suffered as a result of the global financial crisis, and he eventually asked the authorities to stop providing spousal assistance.
White claimed in court documents that he didn’t even have a monthly salary of $25,000, much less be able to pay that much to Rey. The Texan comedian also listed his annual income and spending, with the former coming in at just over $300,000 and the latter topping $433,000 annually.
