To have your spouse not just cheat on you, but to father a child with their mistress is a heartbreaking thing to happen. And to have something that should have been a dirty family secret play out in the media is something that no wife would want to face, be it the lady next door or in this case, the wife of acclaimed film director Steven Soderbergh, the writer, TV personality and former model Jules Asner.
So, what happened?
While in Australia working on a stage production, Steven Soderbergh who is known for his films like “Traffic” and “Ocean’s Eleven” had a relationship with a woman named Frances Lawrencina Anderson’s in Sydney. She had a baby and – reportedly – a paternity test proved the child was his. He apparently helped pay for her medical expenses while she was pregnant. And now she has sued him in the state of New York for child support.
Let’s hope that Jules Asner and Steven Soderbergh can work this out, no one likes to see another marriage go down the tube.
