The Mr. Bean’s Holiday actor, 60, and Sastry reportedly split last year. According to the Telegraph, the comedian has allegedly been dating actress Louise Ford for the past 18 months. Several unconfirmed reports claim Atkinson had an affair with Ford, 32, while still married.

Atkinson was not present for the court proceeding in London on Tuesday, Nov. 10, the UK paper reports. Sunetra was granted a decree nisi after a 65-second proceeding because of the actor’s “unreasonable behavior.” No other details were provided.

“Unreasonable behaviour is the most common ground for divorce,” Andrew Newbury of the Slater and Gordon Lawyers firm told the Telegraph. “Even in the happiest of marriages, it’s always possible to find behaviour which can be described as unreasonable.”

He continued: “Although described as granting a divorce, the divorce itself won’t be made final until Sunetra Atkinson applies for the decree absolute.”
