The American actor of the remembered show “Drake and Josh” was also listed as “endangered” by the authorities. Hours later, he was found safe. From that information, many have wondered about different aspects of the singer’s life, such as the separation from his wife, actress Janet Von Schmeling, with whom he has a son in common.
According to the site Page Six, Drake Bell initiated divorce proceedings against his wife, actress Janet Von Schmeling, 28, with whom he married in 2018. The breakup would have occurred in the framework of the actor and musician’s problems with the alleged abuse of stimulant substances.
This is not the first time Drake Bell has been involved in controversy. In 2021, he was sentenced to two years of probation and community service after pleading guilty to sexually harassing an underage girl.
WHY DID DRAKE BELL AND JANET VON SCHMELING BREAK UP?
As the Page Six site revealed, Drake Bell and his wife Janet Von Schmeling separated due to the American actor’s problems with abusing stimulant substances.
The medium above indicated that the young actress Janet Von Schmeling moved from Los Angeles to Florida with her son after starting the divorce process with the actor.
Page Six revealed that Drake Bell was caught inside his car, inhaling the contents of some balloons while his little son was in the vehicle’s back seat.
The American actor was also seen entering a vaporizer shop, leaving after a few minutes with a black bag.
Apparently, this would have been the reason why Janet Von Schmeling decided to start divorce proceedings. People close to the couple told Page Six she had “had enough”.
After this, he was admitted to a rehabilitation clinic to follow treatment to face his addictions.
