Clint Eastwood was recently spotted with a much younger woman in the wake of reports that Eastwood's marriage to Dina Ruiz has ended.
The 83-year-old actor was seen with Erica Tomlinson-Fisher at his Los Angeles home and also when he dropped her off at Los Angeles International Airport on August 31.
The woman is the ex-wife of Scott Foster, the man who has been linked to Eastwood's ex-wife Ruiz.
"Things have really taken a very strange turn…[Erica] has spent time at Clint's Los Angeles home, and they seem to have bonded over Dina's relationship with Scott," a source told RadarOnline.com
Eastwood and Ruiz separated after 17 years of marriage. Dina was the one to break the news and said that they have actually been living separately for quite a while.
"Clint fell out of love with Dina a long time ago," a friend revealed to Us Weekly.
Ruiz confirmed the news but did not give an explanation as to why the relationship ended. She married Eastwood, who is 83, in 1996, and they have one daughter together. He had previously been married to Maggie Johnson; they have one daughter and one son, though Eastwood is a father of seven, thanks to other relationships.
The two met in 1993, when Ruiz, then a 27-year-old TV journalist, interviewed Eastwood, who was 62 at the time. Eastwood joked that Ruiz's associates said that they would soon be married, but the joke was on him since they married just three years later.
"Finally I've found someone who has allowed me to feel totally at ease," Eastwood told Hello! Magazine. "It's simply that nice feeling you get when you're sitting on your sofa, having a drink, and you look around and see your wife and daughter – you know this is as good as life can be. I have waited a long, long time to experience that."
