The Real Reason Behind Chad & Hilary's Split
Hilary Swank's news that she was divorcing Chad Lowe came as a huge surprise to anyone. Rumors circulated as to why the rock-solid couple were heading their separate ways. There was a small time when they were talking about reconciling, however that didn't come through. Hilary has now revealed that Chad's substance abuse problem was the real reason behind their break-up.
"I knew something was happening but I didn't know what," Swank tells Vanity Fair magazine. She also says her ex has been fighting his problem for years, and he is sober now. She does not name what substance he abused.
But, she says in excerpts from the interview obtained by the New York Post, "When I found out, it was such a shock because I never thought he'd keep something from me. And yet, on another level, it was a confirmation of something I was feeling that was keeping us from being completely solid."
She goes on to say, "I don't want to make it seem like that's the sole reason; there were other factors. But that just kind of blew it open. It made me look at things a lot deeper. That's when you realize it's not going to work."
Chad honestly better get his mess together. He's already losing his cash now and now he could lose everything. Seriously, a has-been 80s actor in the gutter is so cliche.
