It hasn’t been a good year for Rosie O’Donnell.
A few months ago, Rosie left The View after months of tantrums about Whoopi Goldberg getting to be the center of the panel. On top of that, her new wife, who she was obsessed with last year, abruptly left her at the beginning of 2015 and is now seeking full custody of their adopted child.
While Rosie has been devastated by the breakup, her estranged wife Michelle Rounds, a corporate IT headhunter, appears to be loving life. She was spotted out on the town this week with supermodel Carmen Ortega.
The pair appeared to be out celebrating, as they were spotted the very same day filed for custody of her and Rosie’s two year-old daughter Dakota.
“My client Michelle Rounds has decided to start proceedings for sole custody of their daughter Dakota, since it is unequivocally in their child’s best interest and general welfare,” Michelle’s attorney said in a statement.
A spokesman for O’Donnell replied, “This is an absurd and desperate attempt to use a child for her [Michelle’s] own gain.”
Rosie and Michelle married in November of 2012 and adopted Dakota the very next year. On top of that, Rosie has four older adopted children with her first wife.
The couple, who did not sign a prenuptial agreement, separated in November of 2014 and filed for divorce in February citing an irretrievably broken relationship.
While Rosie has been devastated by the breakup, it looks like Michelle is just happy to be out of there.
