‘Thrones’ star’s latest battle: custody fight
“Game of Thrones” star Lena Headey and ex-husband Peter Loughran are entering a custody battle, E! News has confirmed.
Headey moved back to the U.K. with her son, Wylie Loughran, this past summer, which her ex-husband claims is a violation of their custody agreement. A source told E! News that Loughran is “going to court to dispute Lena’s move.”
An attorney for Headey, Joy Dracup Stanley, told E! News that there is no violation of the former couple’s custody agreement. “The parties have a clear and written agreement that both parents and the child will move to the U.K. this summer, and they will continue to have joint legal custody.”
Headey and Loughran divorced in 2013 after tying the knot in 2007. After the divorce was finalized, Headey opened up about the painful process of getting out of her marriage. “It’s tough,” she said of ending her marriage. “There’s a lot of hurt and sadness and disappointment. Grief. Massive grief. It’s a mourning process, and yet nobody’s died.”
Headey has since given birth to a second child, a daughter, but the HBO star has yet to reveal the identity of the baby’s father. She announced her daughter’s arrival with a tweet: “Hello peeps. All good. Just fallen in unconditional heartbreaking divine love for the second time.”
