Witherspoon's parents at odds over new marriage


Mary Elizabeth Witherspoon says in court documents filed May 8 that her husband John Drake Witherspoon has taken a second wife who may be taking advantage of his mental condition.

The couple has been separated since 1996, but remains married.

The filing alleges John Witherspoon's new wife has tried to take out loans as Mrs. John Witherspoon, lives in his condo and has had him sign a new will.

A message for Reese Witherspoon's publicist was not immediately returned. Neither was a message left for John Witherspoon at his office.
