Just days prior to their fourth wedding anniversary, comedian Kathy Griffin filed for divorce from her spouse, Randy Bick. The divorce papers were formally filed in Los Angeles County, designating December 22 as the date of separation. Griffin stated that the separation was due to irreconcilable differences and that she and Bick have a prenuptial agreement enforceable as of December 23, 2019.
Prior to their brief separation in 2018, the couple had a tumultuous relationship. They exchanged vows on New Year’s Day, 2020. Griffin tweeted at the time that they were breaking up, expressing her continued admiration for Bick notwithstanding the separation. The couple encountered difficulties in their relationship, specifically amidst the contentious controversy that surrounded Griffin’s viral photograph of a severed-head mannequin of former President Donald Trump. This incident also disrupted Bick’s personal life, as his family maintained a supporter of Trump.
Griffin and Bick reconciled in 2019, and on New Year’s Day 2020, comedy icon Lily Tomlin wed them. Griffin opted to wear toy rings in lieu of traditional wedding bands and wore the exact attire she wore on their first date to the wedding.
Occasional attention was drawn to the couple’s relationship on account of their age disparity; Bick was approximately two decades Griffin advanced in age. Notwithstanding her initial apprehensions, Griffin established an authentic rapport with Bick, characterizing him as an ordinary individual as opposed to a “Hollywood guy.”
Griffin has been through a previous marriage to Matthew Moline, which lasted from 2001 to 2005, prior to this second divorce. Griffin’s accusations that Moline had misappropriated funds from her precipitated the dissolution of their marriage, resulting in irreparable trust issues.
Representatives of Griffin have been contacted regarding the divorce. Griffin enters a new phase in her personal life, which has been marked by public controversies and personal struggles, with the dissolution of her marriage to Bick.
