“Diff’rent Strokes” star Todd Bridges is splitting with his wife Dori after 13 years of marriage, reports ET.
“[Dori] is a great mother I’m glad to have had the years to know her and have a great kid with her,” Bridges, 47, tweeted on Friday. “As we know, people grow apart and we did.”
On Monday, Bridges gave a statement to People.com, saying, “The Bridges have decided that disunion is in the best interest of their collective futures … Although Todd and Dori are going their separate ways, they are mutually committed to the well-being of their son [Spencir, 13].”
Bridges is best known for playing Willis on Diff’rent Strokes opposite the late Gary Coleman. Bridges also wrote a tell-all in 2010 called Killing Willis wherein the former child star details his downward spiral following the cancellation of the show that made him a star.
