Is Another Woman Involved?
Though word of Wiseman filing for a divorce has only just surfaced, rumors have been floating for a while that all was not well in their marriage.

Onlookers mentioned that the 42-year old Wiseman and the 24-year old Franco were enjoying each others company. People are speculating that CJ Franco is the reason that Beckinsale and Wiseman are separating. Neither of them has given any statement regarding their decision to separate yet.
When Love Reigned
Beckinsale and Wiseman had first met on the sets of Underworld more than a decade ago. Wiseman directed, and Beckinsale was the star of the movie. Romance bloomed between the two, and they married in 2004. Though they did not have any children together, Beckinsale has a daughter, Lily Sheen, from a previous marriage.

In 2012, Beckinsale had told Glamour magazine that she would love to have a baby when the relationship was good and exclusive, but she was just not sure. Some people are interpreting this statement by Beckinsale as proof that their relationship was in trouble in the past as well.
