Why Yellowstone’s Kelly Reilly Was Dragged Into Madonna and Guy Richie’s Divorce

Kelly Reilly is an English actress who has had a lot of success throughout her career. However, she rose to international fame when her show Yellowstone premiered in 2017. Per IMDb, “Yellowstone” revolves around the Dutton family, who own the largest ranch in the United States as they struggle to keep their land in their family. Reilly plays Beth Dutton, the rough-and-tumble daughter of John and Evelyn Dutton, who is a stark contrast to Reilly’s real-life personality.

Before Yellowstone, Reilly found fame with projects like After Miss Julie, Heaven Is For Real, and Prime Suspect 4. Reilly’s work in 2008’s Sherlock Homes, playing Mary Morstan (Watson’s love interest), brought negativity into her life that had nothing to do with the quality of her performance. Instead, according to US Weekly via Fox News, Reilly’s involvement spurred his alleged romantic relationship with Sherlocks director Guy Ritchie into prompting his wife Madonna to file for divorce.

Rumor has it that Kelly Reilly was dating Guy Ritchie

In 2008, Madonna filed for divorce from Guy Richie, to whom she had been married since 2008. Ritchie directed Sherlock, which began filming around the same time. Us Weekly, along with other gossip rags, published that Kelly Reilly had a romantic relationship with Ritchie, leading to Madonna filing for divorce. The rumors turned out to be true, and later that same year, US Weekly ran a retraction of the original report through Gawker. However, the damage was already done.

Reilly denied the rumors when speaking to The Telegraph in 2009. “I took part in a day of shooting [Guy Ritchie] and said, “Hi, how are you?” shared Reilly. “We had talked about a scene and before you knew it, the press was on my parents’ doorstep and they were like, ‘Well, I heard Kelly’s the reason for the divorce.'”

Two years later, in 2009, while promoting Sherlock Holmes 2, Reilly addressed the Guy Ritchie rumors again. All of that was ridiculous nonsense,” Reilly said. “It was the first time something like this had happened to me, and I didn’t deal with it at all.” The actress went on to say that she is “grieving” and had to deal with people calling her and asking, “What is this with you and?” add that ‘[The rumors] hurts people you love.'”

Kelly Reilly is now happy and married

Despite the personal drama surrounding Kelly Reilly and unfounded affair rumors in the late 2000s, the actor is now happily married in addition to his professional success. In 2012, Reilly married Kyle Baugher, who she had been in a relationship with since 2010, according to IMDb.

Over the years, Reilly has been particularly tight-lipped about details surrounding Baugher, but she shared that he won’t be working in the entertainment industry before their marriage. “I live between my house on the Sussex/Surrey border and New York where my boyfriend lives,” Reilly told The Guardian. “I won’t say more about him other than that he’s not an actor, not in business.”

At this point, Reilly never mentioned having children with Baugher or otherwise. However, the couple still has to make an effort to make their relationship work. Speaking to The Evening Standard in 2015, Reilly shared that she hadn’t done a play in eight years prior to “Old Times” because it was affecting her work-life balance. “Now I’m married and happy and content, so I thought it was time to see if I could regain that balance,” the actor shared.
