McDreamy’s first marriage a nightmare?

Patrick Dempsey

After reports of an almost-altercation with Isaiah Washington on the Grey’s Anatomy set, it seems that Grey’s Anatomy star, Dr. McDreamy may be a Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde of sorts. New reports surfaced today which accused the actor with abusing his first wife. Rochelle Parker, married Patrick Dempsey when he was 21, (she was 47). She alleges that Dempsey ‘broke her finger in a car door and further charged that “while we were on the set of his [1987] movie ‘Can’t Buy Me Love’ he beat me up because he wanted to see what it was like to beat a woman”. When reached for comment, Parker denied the accusations stating, “she had been advised to make those accusations and others — which she now says are false”. She also went on to say that she has forgiven Patrick Dempsey.

I have a hard time believing this story..I mean..anyone who saw Patrick Dempsey in “Can’t Buy Me Love” knows he weighed about 120 and kinda nerdy..hardly capable of beating a woman..just for the thrill of it.

Patrick Dempsey’s first wife accused the Grey’s Anatomy star of beating her, according to court papers obtained by the National Enquirer.

Rochelle “Rocky” Parker claimed that Dempsey once broke her finger in a car door and further charged that “while we were on the set of his [1987] movie ‘Can’t Buy Me Love’ he beat me up because he wanted to see what it was like to beat a woman,” the tab is reporting.

Dempsey and Parker married in 1987, when he was 21 and she was 47. She filed for divorce in 1991, citing “irreconcilable differences,” reportedly after he told her that he had met another woman.

Now, Parker is distancing herself from those accusations. After the Enquirer contacted Dempsey’s rep for comment, Parker released a statement saying that during the messy divorce she had been advised to make those accusations and others — which she now says are false.

Only days earlier, however, Parker reportedly discussed the alleged beating with the Enquirer, which quotes her as saying, “After [the alleged violence on the set of ‘Can’t Buy Me Love’] he never beat me up again” and also added that she had forgiven Dempsey because forgiveness is “the only thing that really heals us.”

Dempsey recently made headlines when he and “Grey’s Anatomy” co-star Isaiah Washington got into what has been described as an on set dust-up.

[...] Here is a picture of Dr. McDreamy Patrick Dempsey and his first wife, Rochelle Parker. Rochelle Parker is the woman who first claimed she was abused by Dempsey and then retracted her statment claiming she was told to lie in court. [...]

Sad that their marriage didnt work but to be honest, did they really think it would? Such a big age gap? I have had a relationship with a man 17 years younger for 3 years but when he said get married two months ago, I ended the relationship. He is only 34 so has his whole life ahead of him to make a family. Why put myself and him through the pain that will inevitably occur in the future when he meets someone nearer his own age and wants a family. How many of these relationships really do work when the woman is so much older??

I highly doubt Patrick would do such a thing. He’s a kind hearted man. I guess Parker had to say something about him to make him look less important. If you watch his youtube videos and the things he says, you won’t believe a single thing in this article. CMON, ROCKY fails.

I have lived in Hollywood at that time Patrick Dempsey was making his first movie, I can’t believe he would ever, hit a women or beat them up. I think he was just lonley for his mom, I was homesick also when I lived there, Hollywood is not kind, its cold and people there work all the time, they are not friendly. I have seen all of his movies and I think he has grown up a lot and his acting has gotten a lot better. He has grown into 1 dreamy handsome man. I wan’t to see him in more movies and take the lead in movies.

I kinda think that she made it up for I have no clue reason, I don’t think he would beat her, especially look at him now with his family. Also, what was she thinking?!?! Taking advantage of this guy she’s freakin’ 40 something and he’s 21!!!
