Michael Galeotti is better known as the ex-husband of ‘One Tree Hill’ actress Bethany Joy Lenz. He and his wife, Bethany met in December 2005. They dated for exactly 30 days before they quickly tied the knot on 31 December 2005. They seemed to be a happy couple. The initial days were gone in good relations.
There were immense love and respect. But soon, personal differences came to the house in this lovely and adorable relationship.
Michael Galeotti and Bethany Joy Lenz’s daughter
In between all these marital frictions, a beautiful daughter was born in February 2011 who was named as Marie Rose Galeotti. There was a transient phase of happiness before the final split in March 2012. At that time, Bethany Joy Lenz had announced on her blog:
“I’m sorry to say that Michael and I have decided to divorce. We remain friendly and dedicated to raising our beautiful girl.”
“As most of you know, as much as I love to share with you the magic of ordinary days, I am also very private about my personal life. In fact, the only reason I’m saying anything about this at all is because you’ll all be wondering soon why everyone is calling me ‘Bethany Joy Lenz’ again.”
She further wrote:
“We remain friendly and dedicated to raising our beautiful girl in love and we appreciate your prayers and support during this difficult time. I feel immensely humbled and grateful that God works all things for the good of those who love Him,”
The downhill spiral of Michael Galeotti’s life
Michael had starred in the Disney Channel’s show called ‘The Jersey’ in 2004. He was an Enation Keyboardist. He never appeared in any other movies or TV shows.
He had taken alcohol and had many times been arrested for DUI and had also received jail terms for it.
Neglect of medical care and the death of Michael Galeotti
It has been said that Michael Galeotti had multiple health problems before he died. But he had not heeded medical advice properly. Michael Galeotti had gone to the hospital one week before his death complaining of stomach pain and abdominal distress and was diagnosed with hypertension, high blood cholesterol, and diverticulitis.
But he took discharge against medical advice and went home.
He retreated into his shell and did not answer any phone calls over the weekend. One of his concerned friends went to his Glendale home and knocked. When the doorbell was not answered for a long time, the friend climbed through a window and went inside. He was surprised to see Michael lying dead in the living room.
An autopsy was ordered and death was said to be due to natural causes. No foul play was suspected. The date of his death was reported on 11 January 2016. His post-mortem findings were made public in September 2016. It is said that the young actor had died of atherosclerotic heart disease.
Now Bethany Joy Lenz is engaging herself in a career. The news is that she has grabbed a role in the popular ABC series, Grey’s Anatomy. Her role is said to be the fiancée of Jo’s abusive husband, Paul.
Bethany Joy Lenz now
“Joy” as her friends call her is raising her daughter in low-profile as much as possible. After taking a hiatus for some time, she popped up in the charts after she appeared in the series Grey’s Anatomy. Bethany is also working with Nicholas Sparks, the author of The Notebook on a new project. She also is singing at celebrity events for Sparks.
Bethany also has started a lifestyle blog called Modern Vintage Life. But she is falling behind on this! Her last post was in January 2017, so her busy schedule is to blame!
She has currently been in a relationship with UnREAL alum Josh Kelly. We are glad she has found love again.
