‘Chicago P.D.’ star Jason Beghe files for divorce
Jason Beghe has reportedly filed for divorce after 16 years with wife Angeline.
The “Chicago P.D.” star cited irreconcilable differences in court documents filed Thursday and obtained by The Blast.
The 57-year-old actor is asking for joint legal and physical custody of the couple’s two children, 14-year-old Bix and 11-year-old Bo.
Bighe listed the date of separation as May 10, 2016. That year, NBC launched an investigation into the actor after complaints of anger management issues.
“People felt disrespected, he yelled a tremendous amount, he had a quick fuse and when it was set off it was unpleasant for everyone around him,” a source told Variety last month.

NBC told the Daily News that it opened an investigation “promptly” after the complaints.
“When it was brought to our attention that there were concerns about inappropriate behavior on set, we promptly began an investigation in partnership with Human Resources and all parties involved,” the network, Universal Television and Wolf Entertainment said in a statement.
“As a result of the investigation, we have already taken action, and it is a situation we continue to monitor very closely to ensure all of our employees feel safe and supported.”
Beghe apologized for his actions and said he hired an anger management coach.
“I am deeply sorry for my behavior, which I know has been hurtful to my friends and colleagues. I have struggled with anger issues for some time, and over the past year, I have been working with a coach to help me learn how to mitigate my temper. It’s an ongoing process, and it has been a humbling one,” he said in a statement.
“It is a source of great pride for me to be part of ‘Chicago P.D.’s’ incredible cast and crew. I have personally apologized to anyone who I have upset, and I am committed to doing what is necessary to make up any damage that I may have caused.”
