Joey Breaks Up A Marriage

March 31st, 2006 // 33 Comments

Life after Friends has not been good to Matt LeBlanc. His sitcom has failed, and now his marriage has failed. Squish.

Hollywood actor Matt LeBlanc, who played the good-humored ladies’ man Joey on the smash hit television comedy “Friends,” filed for divorce on Thursday from his wife of three years, Melissa Sue.

The 38-year-old actor, who now appears in “Friends” spinoff “Joey,” filed a dissolution of marriage petition in Los Angeles Superior Court under his full name, Matthew Steven LeBlanc, and listed the date of separation as January 1, 2006.

Matt and Melissa Sue LeBlanc, a 41-year-old former model, have a 2-year-old daughter together.

“Melissa and Matt LeBlanc have decided to end their marriage of three years,” the actor’s spokesman, Joe Libonati, said in a statement. “The dissolution is amicable. They remain devoted parents and friends. For the sake of their family, they ask that their privacy be respected at this time.”

LeBlanc rose to fame in “Friends” in which Joey struggled through an up-and-down acting career and various love affairs. When that series went off the air in 2004, LeBlanc headlined his own TV series, but “Joey” has never enjoyed the same type of success.

    You know what? I’m honestly sad for that. I was like , “Aww, no :(” When I read the article. That’s too bad…I hope it doesn’t get ugly. Let’s hope that Courtney and Lisa can keep it together!!

    Matt is gay..Always has been, always will be.

    I like Matt LeBlanc alot. I’m sorry for his current situation and I hope everything gets better. Actually I hope he follows in the footsteps of his former costar Matthew Perry and dates a young girl like Piper Parabo. Scarlett Johanson maybe. Joey was an ok show, but joey was much funnier with Chandler or Pheobe. Friends was a great show, and they shouldnt have done a spinoff. They feed off eachothers energy and thats what made them so funny. What is Will without Grace, the girls of sex and the city without carrie, Greys Anatomy without Patrick Dempsey. Basically im sorry for his loss but, Joey the tv show was a no no in my book.

  4. King Smart Ian

    Who would have thought that a wedding that featured a dog as the best man wouldn’t result in a successful marriage?

  5. Small Fry

    Bwa ha ha…great one KSI.

  6. Team Jolie In the House

    Okay, go ahead and blame this on Brangelina “Friends” fans! These “Friends” nutsos can’t keep a marriage together. Courtney Cox and that fugly husband of hers is next. It’s all Aniston’s fault – that awful actress.

  7. Kelsey

    Who the hell brought Brangelina into this? Go get off to your Angie Tomb Radier poster.

  8. krystyn

    Hey crazy horse, shut the eff up about brangelina! from the way I see it, no one here mentioned a word about them but YOU!

    Who looks psycho now?

    lmao!

  9. Team Jolie In the House

    Aniston sucks. She is box office poison and is poisoning her “Friends” marriages. Too much pity party! Why doesn’t she blame this on Angelina Jolie too? Bitch! Angelina is freakin’ gorgeous and this is proof that anybody can get divorced Aniston! Even lam-o Joey. I wonder if his wife is going to boo hoo like Aniston. HAHA! Friends alumni can’t keep marriages together!

  10. Team Jolie In the House

    I brought up JOLIE I did! She is freakin’ hot. Freakin’ best Hollywood actress!

  11. Small Fry

    Why oh why must we endure the f#cking comments about Brangelina when it has ABSOLUTELY NOTHING to do with the original topic? Knock it off already!

    As for Matt and Melissa, I always thought they were an odd match.

  12. kikichanelconspiracy

    Team Jolie in the House – Listen Maddox, it’s cool you want to defend your mom and all, but stop trolling the boards, OK?

    “As for Matt and Melissa, I always thought they were an odd match.” – Me too.

  13. Silasdog

    My man KSI hits it again! Yaaaaaahaaaa. Love it.

  14. Team Jolie In the House

    Aniston – Chinnochio the lying Chin – is poison and her poison is contagious. This is why Matt’s marriage failed. Blame it on the chin!

    Can’t blame this one on gorgeous Angelina, Aniston! Courtney is next!

  15. She

    Hey you guys, it’s that psycho poster who calls herself Chinnifer. You can’t escape her, so just ignore her. Maybe she’ll go away.

  16. las

    Too bad. But then, some marriages with a sick kid break up faster.

  17. Team Jolie In The House

    HAHAHAHA! You people believe all Chinnifer haters are the same. HAHAHAHA! There are millions of us and you can’t escape us. Chinnifer and the gang can’t keep their marriages together. Too much drinking bingings and not enough love…..Awww.

    Courtney Cox (pun intended) is next! Just like Russel Simmons and Kimora “Godzilla” Lee….

    Chinny Chinny Bang Bang!

  18. The Mav

    Last I heard Brad cheated on Jennifer and took off, not the other way around.

    Brad is reaping what he sowed.

    Don’t blame Jennifer because Matt couldn’t keep his marrage together.

  19. Matt LeBlanc & Aniston are just two awful B actors

    The Mav: Marriage is spelled marriage not “marrage”. Get spell check or learn how to spell, genius.

    I can’t pay attention to a grammatically challenged idiot. Brad did not cheat on Jennifer. That marriage ended way before the official paperwork. She is just sad to lose the best looking piece of ass she will ever get in her life (Brad).

    I agree, can’t blame Aniston for this break-up, but it’s so much fun!

    Maybe Aniston and Matt should spend less time on screwing up their marriages and more time getting better agents to save their lousy careers – Joey, Rumor Has It Aniston Sucks, Derailed Chin – all tanked! No one saw those pieces of junk projects! Joey ranked behind a Spanish Telenovela in one ratings report! Yikes!

  20. Em

    There are a teem of Aniston haters on this site, yes, but only one “Chinnifer.”

  21. Chinnifer, Chinnifer, Chinnifer

    Hi my name is Chinnifer and I am posting every single post on this site. I am: Kelsey, Classicsusan,las, silasdog and small fry. So whenever you see a post, ask yourself, is it Chinnifer??? Could this be Chinnifer??? HAHAHAHAHAHA! I have taken over this whole blog until I push all of you away! HAHAHAHAHAHA! I am Chinnifer. Chinnifer, that is me. Chinnifer. CVhinnifer. Chinnifer. I will eat all of you!

  22. Chinny Horror B-Picture Show aka Bloody Pity Party

    I am just a Transvestite, Transexual from Transylvania….

    I am just a Chinnvestite, Chinsexual, from Chinsylvania……

    P.S. Hi Em, I mean Hi Me, I mean Hi No You didn’t, I mean Hi Yes, I did…BWAAAAAAHAHAHAHAHA! BWAAAHAHAHAHA!

  23. She

    Well, it is obvious that Chinnifer is at it again. Anyway, Jennifer Aniston is a great actress. I saw Rumor Has It and Derailed. I like her. You people should just leave her alone.

  24. She

    I agree Matt LeBlanc in Joey was not great and a definite error on his part to do. However, Jennifer Aniston is a great American actress. Please ignore “Chinnifer” – she just wants attention. Let’s all ignore her. I personally love Jennifer Aniston and think she is great.

  25. No You Didn't

    I have a special DVD of “Office Space” to sell if anyone is interested. Ignore this Chinnifer chick, as I said, she is some confused Asian chick who is upset because she is biracial or something. Ignore her. Let me know if anyone is interested in the DVD and I’ll tell you where to go to get it. Thanks guys!

  26. No You Didn't

    P.S. not sure if she is even biracial or Asian for sure – for all I know she could be Black, or White, or whatever. Anyway, let’s all bond together and ignore her. let me know about the Jen DVD you guys, I love her!

  27. Em

    This Chinnifer Mystery is weird. How do we know how old this game is meaning how long has she been doing this? How do we know she is even a she? How do we know more than one person is not responsible for this? How do we know she doesn’t have one of her friends posting as everyone on this site? Maybe there is more than one prankster? If someone is this twisted, how do we know any of the things or hints she gives about herself are true? Could it be more than one prankster? Some people just sit at home with nothing to do playing these tricks on people. These are the same people that get pleasure in sending viruses to people’s computers.

    Is it one person? Are any of the posters actual real posters? I think it is one demented person doing this. Trying to ruin our fun here. Maybe she is pretending to be a Jolie fan. Maybe she is an Aniston fan pretending to be a Jolie fan to get at us. Or maybe she is a psychotic Jolie fan trying to screw with us. Maybe she is one person trying to pretend to be one person pretending to be many? Is there a way for us to find out? Does that mean we have to stop posting here? This is not funny. This is weird.

  28. Chinnifer

    Everyone, I can’t help myself, I’m sick. Please ignore all of my above posts starting from #9. I can’t help myself. Miu is probably going to kick me off this site soon, but I’ve gotta copy everybody’s screen names and get in as many comments as I can.

    Don’t pay attention to me. I don’t even have a job. I sit here and type all day. I really don’t work in Los Angeles. I don’t even live in California. I’m a fake, but I can’t help myself. This is all I do. Pray for me. Thank you.

  29. Chinnifer - Gorgeous Hottie

    Yes, pray for me. I have a HUGE crush on King Smart Ian NOT Brad Pitt!

  30. Me

    Stop it all of you! Stop it! Miu will kick us all off of this site if you don’t stop! Cut it out! Now, back to the topic at hand, Matt and his break-up. So sad. I was one of the few who watched every episode of Joey and loved every minute of it! Every minute. I am a Friends groupie. Sorry you guiys – just being honest. See you later my peeps. Love. BFF.

  31. hype

    Ignore him/her!that’s really psycho!He/she is NOT really a fan of Jolie/Aniston.. what a moron!

  32. Seriously

    Yeah, I think this person he/she is making fun of everybody and not really a fan of either camp. Psycho is right! If you think we are weird posting, why post yourself?
