Baywatch star sues ex-husband

The actress has accused Edmonton Oilers player Sheldon Souray of reviving their relationship after a year-long separation, before convincing her to agree to a divorce in a bid to give the couple a “fresh start”, reports

But according to Bridges’ lawsuit, filed in Los Angeles Superior Court, Souray only wanted to make their split official to prevent her from taking any of his new $27 million (£18 million) contract with the National Hockey League.

Bridges is seeking $14 million (£9.3 million) in damages, on top of the monthly $18,000 (£12,000) she receives in child support.

The couple, who married in 2002, has two children, daughters Valentina Raine and Scarlett Skye.
