Da Vinci Code Author Dan Brown Accused by Ex-Wife of 'Sordid' Affairs, Lying About Financials
In this story, which comes in the form of a lawsuit filed by his ex-wife Blythe Brown, the author stands accused of conducting a series of "sordid, extra-marital affairs." Calling the final several years of their marriage a "proverbial life of lies," Blythe alleges that Dan "secretly siphoned" a ton of money toward these affairs.
As such, she is suing the man she was married to for 21 years, until they filed for divorce last December, for misrepresenting their combined wealth -- possibly to hide the expense of these extramarital dalliances -- in a sworn affidavit he signed as part of their divorce agreement.
Dan quickly denied the allegations, telling the Boston Globe that he is "stunned" by these "false claims." He further says that the affidavit was both fair and truthful, per the paper.
"I swore to the truthfulness of what was contained on that list, and I stand by that financial statement today," Dan said. "We were very fortunate that we equally were blessed with very substantial assets with which to move forward after that."
While he hasn't denied the affairs, Dan is adamant that he was honest about the couple's wealth and is going so far as to seek to unseal confidential financial statements from their divorce to prove his claims.
"I have continually tried to absorb the shocking truth withheld during our divorce that Dan had been leading a double life for years during our marriage, all while coming home to me," Blythe told the Boston Globe in a statement.
