Although his Grey’s Anatomy character suffered a tragic ending, Eric Dane is definitely enjoying his new found time off.
The actor, who chose not to renew his contract with Grey’s, was recently spotted out and about with his young daughter, Billie. The actor left the show amicably in 2012 in order to spend more time with his family, and that’s exactly what he’s been doing. Dane was all smiles as he took his golden-haired daughter out to Puzzle Zoo, a toy store on Melrose Ave on October 2nd, 2012.
The light-hearted outing is following the somber news that Dane and his wife, actress Rebecca Gayheart, have recently filed a lawsuit against their next door neighbor, Smashing Pumpkins frontman, Billy Corgan after one of his Eucalyptus trees fell and smashed through Dane’s Beverly Hills home. The couple, in their joint lawsuit with the L.A. County Superior Court, claimed that one of Corgan’s trees crashed through their roof, exposing a major power line and caused Gayheart, who was pregnant at the time of the incident, to evacuate the house through flooding and wreckage.
With all of the turmoil surrounding the recent events, it’s no surprise that the actor wanted to take his daughter out for a treat. There’s nothing more mood-lifting than making your kids happy, I imagine.
You can catch McSteamy‘s last appearance on Grey’s Anatomy on October 4th.
