Valerie Bertinelli’s hopes for an amicable split are fading fast now that her ex Tom Vitale is challengin­g their prenup. The actress, 62, filed for divorce from the financial planner in May, two years after they called time on their 10-year marriage. According to court docs, Tom is not only seeking spousal support, but also wants his ex’s right to it terminated. The 58-year-old is also asking that Valerie pay his attorney’s fees. “She has tried to keep the peace, but Tom seems intent on playing hardball,” reveals a source. “Which is the last thing she needs right now.” After all, the Hot in Cleveland star is still grieving the death of her ex-husband and first love, rocker Eddie Van Halen, who passed away in 2020. They shared a son, Wolfgang, 31. “Val’s still getting over losing Eddie and now Tom is trying to make a cash grab,” the source continues. “It’s a total nightmare any way you look at it.” ★
