Jim Belushi Applies For Divorce After 23 Years Of Marriage To Jennifer

Jim Belushi and Jennifer Sloan are calling it quits after 23 years together.

According to Jim Belushi,” actor and comedian, 67, filed for divorce Friday in Los Angeles from Sloan, according to legal documents obtained by USA TODAY. Sloan, who has worked in Hollywood as a casting assistant and assistant voice director, is listed in the court filings as Jennifer Blair Belushi.

The ex-couple married in May 1998 and has two children: Jamison Bess Belushi, 22, and Jared James Belushi, 19.

They reportedly filed for divorce in 2018 but later decided to reconcile and dismiss the case. Last year, Belushi acknowledged the couple’s troubles in an interview with The Hollywood Reporter, noting that Sloan spends most of her time in Los Angeles, where she runs a children’s boutique. In contrast, he runs a marijuana farm in Eagle Point, Oregon.

“I can’t go there,” Belushi said at the time when asked about the state of their relationship. “As of this moment, we’re still together.”

In his 2020 Discovery docuseries, “Growing Belushi,” Belushi discussed his decision to abandon Hollywood to start a farm, which was partly inspired by his continued mourning for his late brother, John Belushi.

“I’ve done it,” he told The Hollywood Reporter of his time in Los Angeles. “I raised my kids there, went to all the premieres. I went to award shows. I’ve been to Toscana 1,600 times. I have a grateful feeling for my life there – I’m just moving on to a new reinvention.”

From 1980 until 1988,  Jim Belushi was previously wed to Sandy Davenport, with whom he has a 40-year-old son named Robert Belushi. From 1990 to 1992, he was also married to Marjorie Bransfield.
