Meet Coleman Laffoon Anne Heche’s Ex-Husband
Coleman Laffoon is the father of Homer Laffoon whom he shares with Anne.
Coleman Laffoon was born in October 1973 and started out his life in Cincinnati, Ohio, but he moved to Gainesville to attend college.
Laffoon decided to make a career change to the real estate industry and in 2007 he got his Real Estate license in the state of California.
After waiting three years, he finally got a job as an agent with Hilton & Hyland.
Heche dated Ellen DeGeneres, the host of a popular talk show, many years ago.
They started dating after meeting at a Vanity Fair Oscar party in 1997, but their relationship lasted only three years.
After their breakup, Heche began dating Coleman, a cameraman on one of DeGeneres’ documentaries.
A spokesperson for Heche revealed the couple’s engagement in 2001 when the actress was spotted trying on wedding gowns in Beverly Hills.
Together for eight years, Heche eventually gave birth to a son they named Homer.
At various points in their relationship, Coleman has made serious allegations that Heche is a bad mother.
Coleman emphasized that, during Homer’s visits to Vancouver, Heche failed to provide a stable environment for him by leaving him with random nannies and confined to a trailer while she filmed scenes.
Coleman blamed Heche for their divorce in 2007 because of her alleged inability to take care of their kid Homer.
He sought primary custody of the child and asked for financial support in the form of $10,000 in mortgage payments, monthly spousal support of $28,000, and other financial help.
Coleman married his coworker Alexi in 2015, and the couple now has two children, a boy named Zoey Marine and a girl named Emmylou Polk.
