Troubled Nickelodeon star Drake Bell has separated from his wife, actress Janet Von Schmeling, amid his latest struggles, sources told Page Six. We’re told they’re headed to divorce.
Sources also say that he’s entered treatment.
On Dec. 7 and 8, Bell was spotted “huffing” balloons in his car in the parking lot of a vape shop while his young son sat in the backseat.
Now, an insider told us that Von Schmeling has “had enough.”
The “Drake & Josh” star, 36, and Von Schmeling, 28, started dating In 2013 and were married in an intimate ceremony back in 2018.
It seems Von Schmeling has moved back to Florida with their son. We hear she has closed on a home in Florida and is getting support from her family.
“They had some incredible beautiful times before. He needs to focus on being healthy and they’ll be great co-parents in the future,” said a source.
“It’s a bad moment in time for Drake. But he is a great dad when he is healthy and sober,” they added.
It’s not Bell’s first turbulent run. In 2021, he pleaded guilty to two criminal counts of attempted child endangerment and disseminating matters harmful to juveniles from an incident in 2017.
Bell was sentenced to two years of probation and 200 hours of community service.
Prosecutors claimed he met a girl — who is now an adult — online; she then attended a concert of his in Cleveland in 2017. Cops said Bell had sent the girl “inappropriate social media messages.”
In 2015, he was charged with driving under the influence and ex-girlfriend Melissa Lingafelt claimed in 2020 that he had been verbally and physically abusive to her, which he denied.
Von Schmeling did not respond to our request for comment.
An attorney for Bell was unavailable.
