Ioan Gruffudd, 48, married wife Alice Evans, 53, in 2007, however, he left their family home last year, with Alice being very public about the situation. The actress has now set up a GoFundMe page to help raise money for her divorce from Ioan.
The 102 Dalmatians star has set up a GoFundMe page to raise $25,000 (£20,500), asking the public for money, after she has been left “unable to buy anything”.
The page was set up a day ago and included a lengthy heartfelt message as she pleaded to the public for cash.
It reads: “Hi there. I never in a million years thought I would be doing this.
“Until recently everything appeared to be going well in my life.

“I had a wonderful husband and two brilliant kids who had cost us the earth in IVF but were so worth it!
“However in August 2020, just as the pandemic was really kicking in, my entire world fell apart.
“Since that date, I have been not only struggling as a single mother to my babies, but also trying to cover bills and food and legal fees (ha! don’t even talk to me about legal fees) which dwarf any other expense in my life and have finally drained everything – savings, accounts, pension, the lot.”
The actress then alleged that she is “unable” to buy anything.
Papers filed last week, according to the MailOnline show that Alice is down to be representing herself, while Ioan has the help of lawyer Leon Bennett.
Leon has a good track record, helping the likes of Hollywood’s Brad Pitt in his lengthy divorce from Angelina Jolie.
The mother-of-two took to social media to announce her marriage break-up in January last year, admitting the actor was walking out as he no longer loved her.
Seven months later announcing their seperation, Ioan had found love with Bianca Wallace, 30, an extra he had met on the set of the Australian crime drama Harrow.
