It looks like duh-rama used to follow Patrick Dempsey around big time! Before he landed his current wife Jillian, many people do not know that Dempsey was previously married to his one-time agent, Rocky Parker (pictured above) who was 26 years his senior (he was 21, she was 47 at the time ... and you all thought Demi Moore started this younger husband trend!). According to The National Enquirer, the couple was married for 5 years, but Parker filed for divorce after Dempsey told her he had met another woman. After that, a bitter divorce battle began that had Parker accusing Dempsey of drug use, mental abuse and physical abuse. In the divorce court papers, Parker claimed that Dempsey once broke her finger when he slammed a van door on it and also accused him of beating her up on the set of the 1987 movie "Can't Buy Me Love." She claimed Dempsey beat her up because "he said he wanted to see what it was like to beat up a woman!"
As everyone knows, divorces can be dirty, and The Enquirer also uncovered that Dempsey's ex-wife is actually a self admitted big, fat, liar. When The Enquirer contacted Dempsey's rep for a comment about her previous allegations, the reps responded by accused Dempsey's ex of falsifying court documents. After that, they supplied The Enquirer with a current statement from Parker admitting she lied saying, "In the heat of a divorce, sometimes people say things they normally wouldn't. I was advised to make these statements, but the statements of mental and physical abuse, as well as alcohol and drug use are false."
