A surprising report surrounding Clint Eastwood's split from his wife of 17 years has just surfaced. According to Us Weekly, the "J. Edgar" director is dating Erica Tomlinson-Fisher, the ex-wife of Scott Fisher who is believed romancing his estranged wife Dina now.
The partner swap reportedly happened after Erica contacted the 83-year-old filmmaker earlier this year to express her suspicions about their spouses. Dina and Scott were not a couple back then, but they have allegedly been casually dating since their exes got together.
Clint was indeed recently spotted in Los Angeles with Erica. "I am saddened to see photos of Clint with Ms. Tomlinson-Fisher. I look forward to new beginnings," Dina tells Us Weekly to comment on the sighting.
Clint married Dina, 48, in March 1996. They have a daughter, 16-year-old Morgan, together. Earlier this week, Dina took to Twitter to defend her estranged husband, "I don't like reading negative things about Clint. He is a wonderful, good natured, brilliant person. No matter what, I attest to that."
As for Erica, the mother of two reportedly split from Scott, a University of Hawaii basketball coach, last year after 33 years of marriage.
