Pop Idol Finalist Darius Campbell’s wife files for Divorce

By Principal Lawyer, Family Law

The former Pop Idol Finalist, Darius Campbell (formerly known as Darius Danesh) who became famous for his take on the Britney Spears’ song “Hit Me Baby One More Time” during his audition for the Pop Idol series, is to set to Divorce according to reports.

Darius, 32, wed Hollywood Star Natasha Henstridge, 38, in California in 2011 after a seven year relationship. Natasha has two young sons Tristan, 14 and Asher, 11 from her previous relationship with actor Liam Waite.

It has been reported that although Natasha has initiated the issue of Divorce Proceedings, the decision to Separate was mutual. They share a home in California and it is understood Darius is moving out, leaving Natasha in the marital property with her sons.

Divorce laws in America vary from state to state and unlike in England and Wales, all states allow “no fault” Divorce Proceedings on grounds such as “irreconcilable differences” or a period of living apart. In the UK, the overall ground for a Divorce is that the marriage has irretrievably broken down and save for facts based on periods of separation, the only other facts which can be relied on are that of either adultery or unreasonable behaviour, “Irreconcilable differences” as a reason for Divorce does not exist in this country.
