David Lynch’s wife, Emily Stofle, seeks divorce from director


Entertainment Desk

Legendary filmmaker David Lynch and his wife, Emily Stofle, are getting a divorce after 14 years of marriage. Stofle, 45, is the one who requested the divorce and made several demands in her petition. The split does not seem amicable. Stofle asked for sole legal and physical custody of their 11-year-old daughter, but is reportedly okay with Lynch having visitation rights. She also wants Lynch to pay her spousal support and cover the cost of her attorneys’ fees.

This is Lynch’s fourth marriage. He was previously married to Peggy Lynch from 1967 to 1974, Mary Fisk from 1977 to 1987, and Mary Sweeney from 2006 to 2007. He married Stofle, who appeared in his 2006 movie, “Inland Empire,” and the 2017 “Twin Peaks” TV series, in 2009.

Lynch is known for his work as a filmmaker, with iconic movies such as “The Elephant Man,” “Wild at Heart,” “Lost Highway,” and “Dune.” He is also a painter, musician, photographer, author, and designer, and has his own foundation. Stofle’s acting credits include “Ted Bundy” and “The Fourth Noble Truth.”
