Jeremy Clarkson Marriage Details, Wife, Kids
Jeremy’s first marriage was with Alexandra James in 1989. The marriage did not last long and before the year was over, Alexandra had eloped with one of Jeremy’s best friends. The couple divorced each other in 1990.
Soon after, the motor journalist got involved with his manager, Frances Cain. The two dated for a few years before tying the knots on 8th May 1993.
A year into the marriage, Frances gave birth to daughter Emily, in the July of 1994. Jeremy and Frances had two more children together – son Finlo, in 1996 and daughter Katya, in 2001.
In 2014, nearly two decades after their marriage, Jeremy and Frances started facing difficulties in their relationship. Rumors surfaced that by then, the couple were already living apart for three years. In April 2014, Frances sought divorce, confirming rumors of the alleged split.
The divorce came at a point when Jeremy was already neck-deep in controversy for dropping an ‘N-word’ and his career was in trouble. To make things worse, his ex-wife Alexandra made a statement that it was Frances’ hard work that helped Jeremy build his successful career.
Many, like Alexandra, consider Frances to be the force behind Jeremy’s success. Interestingly, as part of the divorce settlement, Frances also had a claim on half of Jeremy’s fortune of £30 million.
