Sean Bean arrested for allegedly harassing ex-wife

Thursday May 10, 2012

Lord of the Rings actor Sean Bean has been arrested on suspicion of harassing his ex-wife.

The British star is alleged to have sent abusive text messages and calls to Georgina Sutcliffe.

"A 53-year-old man attended a central London police sation by appointment today, where he was arrested and bailed pending further enquiries," a Scotland Yard spokesman said.

"He was arrested on suspicion of harassment."

Georgina, Sean’s fourth wife, is currently appearing in the West End production of The Mousetrap.

A source told the Daily Mirror: "Georgina’s a smashing girl and she just wants to get on with her life and move on after the divorce.

"There’s been no suggestion of there being violence involved or threats, but police take harassment allegations very seriously."

Sean and Georgina first met in 2003 when she was managing the bar at the theatre where he was playing Macbeth.

They were married in February 2008 (pictured), but divorced two years later.
