Reese Witherspoon's Mother Sues Husband For Bigamy

Posted: Updated:

NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) - Actress Reese Witherspoon's mother has filed a petition of annulment to wipe out her husband's recent second marriage.

Mary Elizabeth Witherspoon said in court documents filed May 8 that her husband John Drake Witherspoon has taken a second wife who may be taking advantage of his mental condition.

The couple has been separated since 1996, but remains married.

John, wed Tricianne Taylor in January. The filing alleges John Witherspoon's new wife has tried to take out loans as Mrs. John Witherspoon, lives in his condo and has had him sign a new will.

After confronting John about his "second wife", Betty said John had no idea who Tricianne Taylor was, and he didn't even remember getting married.

John had also been spotted with Taylor at several events, and allegedly tried to take her to Reese's wedding, but she was not allowed inside because she wasn't on the guest list.

A message for Reese Witherspoon's publicist was not immediately returned. Neither was a message left for John Witherspoon at his office.
