Don’t get too excited. Patrick Dempsey may want to save his 15-year marriage, after all. The Grey’s Anatomy star was photographed wearing his wedding band on Sunday, two days after his makeup artist wife Jillian Fink filed for divorce. In the photo obtained by E! News the 49-year-old actor is seen in the pit stall at the Rolex 24 at Daytona International Speedway in Daytona Beach with a silver ring firmly in place on his left hand.
Dempsey, part of a four-man driver lineup, may have blindsided by the news. On Saturday he skipped an autograph signing – an event he usually takes part in – and tried to keep a low profile, according to widespread media reports.
The longtime couple has three kids; “irreconcilable differences” was cited as the reason in Fink’s filing.
Dempsey was briefly married to his manager Rocky Parker when he was 21, she was 48.
