Sophia Bush's quickie divorce
It's Gossip Time!
Hello and welcome to Gossip Time, a weekly guide to the stars by Allie Jones. Today, we’re looking into actress Sophia Bush’s very strange, very philanthropic 13-month marriage. This post is just for paid subscribers; if you’d like to sign up, you can do so in the box below.
As the always correct Hunter Harris declared last week: Now is a great time to announce your divorce. With SAG and the WGA on strike, celebrities aren’t doing interviews to promote anything, which means that they can end their marriages peacefully without having to comment on what went wrong to an E! News reporter on the red carpet. Sophia Bush, the 41-year-old actress best known for her role on One Tree Hill, has taken advantage of this moment to split from her husband of just 13 months, Grant Hughes. (Not Hugh Grant.)
Bush and Hughes, a 41-year-old “angel investor” from Oklahoma, got married in Tulsa last June in a three-day extravaganza themed around the ideas of social justice and progress.
