Hollywood producer Brian Grazer is planning to wed again after proposing to his businesswoman girlfriend Veronica Smiley over the weekend (26-27Apr14). The movie mogul popped the question on Saturday (26Apr14) in Santa Monica, California, but the proposal hit a small snag when Grazer misplaced the ring he had hoped to present to his bride-to-be.
A source tells the New York Post, "Somehow, the ring fell out of Brian's pocket. After a frantic search he found it, but only because it was such a big diamond, it didn't fall through the slats on the wooden floor."
This will be the producer's fourth marriage - he divorced his third wife Gigi Levangie in 2009.
Grazer was also engaged to Vietnamese concert pianist Nguyen Thi Chau Giang in 2011.
Smiley was previously linked to British funnyman John Cleese.
Producer Brian Grazer has filed new legal documents asking a U.S. judge to boost his visitation rights with the two children he shares with his ex-wife. The A Beautiful Mind producer is seeking an amendment to his parenting agreement with author Gigi Levangie so he can spend more time with their sons, Thomas, 13, and Patrick, nine.
The Oscar winner is also petitioning to have equal say in who takes care of their kids after claiming their former nanny was disrespectful and a bad influence on the boys, according to TMZ.com.
The couple split in 2009.
The Stepmom writer, who has two young sons with ex-husband Brian Grazer, alleges she invested in Anthony Jones' small business and allowed him to live in her guest house in April (12).
Jones subsequently moved out, and Levangie has now accused him of following her to work and calling her phone several times a day. She also claims Jones showed up at her home, and on one occasion trapped her on her own driveway.
Levangie, who stated she was so distressed by the "frightening and erratic behaviour" she hired a private security team to protect her family, has called on court officials to ban Jones from coming within 100 yards (91 metres) of her and her children, according to papers obtained by TMZ.com.
The website reports Jones has "no idea" about the restraining order request. A hearing is set for Wednesday (12Sep12).
