The Young and the Restless (Y&R) spoilers reveal that one soap star is facing some personal drama. Thad Luckinbill, who previously played J.T. Hellstrom, has filed for divorce from Amelia Heinle (Victoria). According to Toofab.com, Luckinbill listed irreconcilable differences as the reason for their split.
The couple has been married for 10 years and they share two children together. Luckinbill is seeking joint custody. The filing also indicated that Luckinbill has a request regarding the topic of spousal support. He asked that it be reserved for future determination.
When Reed (Tristan Lake Leabu) was SORAS’d and returned to Genoa City, many Young and the Restless fans wondered if his father might make an appearance at some point. J.T. has been mentioned several times and had some off-screen phone calls with other Y&R characters. This divorce news doesn’t bode well for Luckinbill’s chances of a comeback on the show.
The Young and the Restless is no stranger to behind-the-scenes drama due to the allegations surrounding Michael Muhney (ex-Adam). They may not be too keen on stirring up anything else by bringing J.D. back in the picture. It’s a good idea to leave all of this alone.
Of course, Luckinbill is busy with other projects anyway. He served as an executive producer for La La Land, which has also been making the news thanks to the debacle at the Academy Awards. As for Heinle and her character, The Young and the Restless seems to be moving full-speed ahead on a “Villy” reunion. Billy (Jason Thompson) is slowly winning over his ex.
