She revealed that she and the 83-year-old star have been living apart for some time.
Dina Eastwood also added that the pair remain “close”.
A source told the magazine that Dina and Clint Eastwood, who share a 16-year-old daughter Morgan, have in fact been living apart for over a year, initially splitting in June 2012.
They say that the couple’s decision to end their relationship was “amicable”.
“Clint fell out of love with Dina a long time ago,” the insider said.
