Kathy Griffin Files for Divorce From Husband Randy Bick Ahead of Fourth Anniversary

After nearly four years of marriage, comedian, author, and actress Kathy Griffin has filed for divorce from her husband, Randy Bick. The couple separated on December 22, and Griffin alerted the LA courts on Thursday, reportedly requesting enforcement of their prenuptial agreement.

Bick and Griffin started dating in 2011, the star told People in 2016. The duo hooked up at a food and wine festival, Griffin said, and she thought that would be the end of things. “Because I thought he was just a man-whore, if you will,” she said then.

“Well, you know, I didn’t think it would last [because] he’s 18 years younger than I am,” Griffin said of Bick, who, per his LinkedIn, was most recently a “Celebrity Management Director” at a company called Inappropriate Laughter. He left that role in June 2020, his resume reads.

That career change came just six months after Bick and Griffin married in an at-home ceremony on January 1, 2020. Actress Lily Tomlin was the officiant, saying from the dais that “What was supposed to be a shallow, tooted and booted, one-night-stand, has grown and flourished to something far more meaningful,” CBS reported at the time.

“They stayed together, then they couldn’t stay away from one another,” Tomlin said.

However, the pair had endured a very public parting just two years before, with Griffin tweeting in 2018, “After 7 years, Randy and I have decided to part ways. It’s not acrimonious and I will always adore him.”

“God help me, but I’m gonna be one of those people who announces a break up,” Griffin wrote at the time. “There, now those jerks at TMZ wont get the story first. Go back to your bootlicking, @HarveyLevinTMZ.”

It’s likely a frustrating twist of fate that, following the couple’s reconciliation, TMZ was first to report on the divorce filing Friday, noting that Griffin, 63, will not be required to supply Bick with spousal support—and that as the pair did not have children, there will be “no issues with child support either.”

Griffin has not responded to a request for comment as of publication time, but a tweet published Friday might say it all. “Well…sh*t,” the Bel Air resident wrote at 10 a.m. California time. “This sucks.”

Then again, perhaps she’s saving her thoughts for her upcoming tour, My Life on the PTSD-List, which kicks off in February. The Grammy and Emmy winner, who was diagnosed with lung cancer in 2021, announced in June that she’s “now cancer free,” and that doctors had been treating her vocal cords in preparation for a return to the stage. “I’m a little scratchy today,” she said in an Instagram post about a recent surgery. “But I’ll be in good shape!”
