Turkish TV series actor seeks millions from wife in mysterious divorce case
Aziz Özen - ISTANBUL
The mystery surrounding the ongoing divorce case stems from the fact that the actor accused his wife, Nagehan Şaşmaz, of “rocking the foundations of their marital union by her gross fault,” without elaborating further.
The Şaşmaz couple, who married seven years ago, had two children.
When applying to the Anadolu Family Court in Istanbul for divorce this week, the actor also petitioned for the custody of the children.
The actor’s attorney also claimed in the court that a foreign travel ban on Nagehan Şaşmaz should be introduced by the court, as the woman, who is also a German citizen, may leave Turkey with their children as the legal case proceeds.
Regarding the compensation, the attorney explained that the actor seeks 5 million liras in material damages and 5 million more in non-material damages.
