Ioan Gruffudd’s estranged wife has accused him of having a years-long affair with her friend in a series of explosive tweets.
Ioan Gruffudd’s ex-wife Alice Evans has accused him of having an affair with her close friend for three years.
Her shock claims come as the actor, 48, went Instagram official with girlfriend Bianca Wallace, 30, today – seven months on from his acrimonious split from Evans, 49.
Taking to Twitter following his post, Evans wrote: “So it turns out that my husband, after two years of telling me I’m a bad person and I’m not exciting and he no longer wants to to have sex with me and he just wants to be on set abroad …
“Has been in a relationship for THREE years behind all our backs. Good luck, Bianca.”
She later added that he’d had no contact with her.
“Still nothing. We were together for 20 yrs (sic). We spoke every day, at least three or four times. He was my best friend, my twin soul. I don’t know how to move on. I will, but at the moment I have no idea,” she tweeted.
Evans first spotted they were dating after she noticed Gruffudd had shared the exact same picture as Wallace, who she was friends with.
Gruffudd had shared a picture of himself cuddling up to Wallace, writing: “Thank you for making me smile again.”
Wallace is also an actress and producer, who has starred in TV series Bloodline.
The actor filed for divorce in March after Evans accused him of gaslighting her.
Evans claimed Liar star Gruffudd had “walked out” on her after saying he “no longer loves her”.
She broke the news to fans in a since-deleted post on Twitter, explaining that her husband had given very few details about his decision.
She wrote: “Sad news. My beloved husband/soulmate of 20 years, Ioan Gruffudd, has announced he is to leave his family, starting next week.
“Me and our young daughters … are very confused and sad. We haven’t been given a reason except that he ‘no longer loves me.’ I’m so sorry.”
The couple had been married since 2007.
Evans, who met Gruffudd on the set of 2000 film 102 Dalmatians, accused him of “gaslighting” and “mentally torturing” her, adding she was “very confused and sad” in an emotional statement.
Gruffudd later said: “Look, as I said before, it’s an extremely difficult time for the family.
“Our thoughts are with our children obviously right now and I’d really respect a little bit of privacy right now, thank you.”
Gruffudd played widower and serial rapist Andrew Earlham opposite Joanne Froggatt in hit British drama Liar.
