The American/British actress, Lynn Redgrave married director John Clark in 1967. They have three children together: Annabel Lucy, Pema, and Benjamin. How their marriage-of-32-years ended is a haunting incident of betrayal.

During their divorce session in court, John acted as his own attorney and emotionally teased his ex-wife. Apart from the division of assets, it was also about something much more dramatic: disloyalty and public humiliation. Despite standing for trial, Lynn's husband never felt he was in the wrong.

Fake grandson

John Clark fathered a child named Zachary with his then-assistant, Nicolette Hannah and kept it hidden. She later married his son, Benjamin and become Lynn's daughter-in-law. However, the couple divorced soon in 1996, making Zach's paternity questionable. That's when Clark spilled the beans and confessed his infidelity.

Redgrave was sobbing as she told The London Times:

I’ve discovered a lifetime of betrayal from my husband. It was right beneath my nose for eight years. I thought the child was my surrogate grandchild.

She could never forgive him for breaking her heart. Lynn and John had no choice but, to part ways as the wife didn't have any wavering on her part. The ex-husband kept receiving $60,000 in alimony and survived just fine even after losing his job as Redgrave's manager.

Regrets upon her death

After Lynn's demise in 2010 due to breast cancer, her ex showed remorse. He had earlier debated that his child with Nicole was only an act of kindness. But, in an interview with DailyMail UK, John said:

Of course, I have regrets. This didn't need to happen.

It's very much possible that Redgrave died of a broken heart. Her dysfunctional family brought her disgrace and despair. Share this and pray for her soul.
