Ewan McGregor confirms what we suspected about his tense divorce

The specter of Ewan McGregor’s messy divorce from ex-wife Eve Mavrakis continues to loom over the ex-couple. Though he welcomed a son with his new wife, Mary Elizabeth Winstead, in June 2021, McGregor has had a rocky road building his new family. After the actor officially filed for divorce from Mavrakis in November 2017, she was quoted by The Sun as saying, “It’s disappointing and upsetting, but my main concern is that our four children are doing well.” The drama didn’t stop here on. Mavrakis reportedly suspected McGregor harbored feelings for Winstead – his co-star on the set of 2017’s ‘Fargo’ – before filing for divorce, but was assured by the actor that things would go no further. That didn’t seem to calm things down. As a source told The Sun: “Eve is certain Ewan and Mary were dating before he confessed his feelings to her. She finds it difficult to believe him.”

The couple’s divorce ended up costing McGregor a pretty penny, and their August 2020 settlement saw him pay Mavrakis $14,934 a month in child support and $35,868 a month in spousal support, according to Us Weekly. In addition, Mavrakis kept their $6 million home, a $500,000 McGregor bank account, and five of their cars (although McGregor kept 30). The Obi-Wan Kenobi star also agreed to pay Mavrakis half of royalties from projects that took place during their marriage.

Notoriously private by nature, McGregor recently shared some intimate reflections on his grueling divorce process.
