Julian Ozanne’s Marriage, Wife, Divorce
Julian was only married once. He was married to the famous and beautiful actress Gillian Anderson, who was born on August 9, 1968, in Chicago, Illinois, and whom he met on a safari in Kenya. Gillian Anderson is an American-British actress, activist, and writer who played the role of FBI special agent Dana Scully in the long-running and widely distributed series The X-Files, which received international acclaim.
They had been together since 2002 and finally decided to get married in 2004. Although they were supposed to be married in September 2003, the marriage was delayed for unknown reasons by one year. Finally, they got married in the village of Shella on the island of Lamu off the Kenyan coast of the Indian Ocean. Gillian’s grown-up daughter Piper from her first marriage, who was 10 years old at the time, was her bridesmaid at the wedding.
Despite all the delays, the marriage did not last long, as it broke up in April 2006 when Gillian Anderson announced the separation almost two years after her wedding. This was also shortly after Anderson had a bizarre alcohol-related outburst on a flight in January. The marriage was officially ended on July 24, 2007.
Stories say that the divorce was due to Julian not getting along well with Gillian’s daughter. However, other sources said that there were irreconcilable marital differences between them, and as such, they decided to separate. Some other sources said it could be because Gillian was bisexual, but this was never confirmed as the main reason for her divorce.
Anderson was previously married to Canadian film director Clyde Klotz, but this was Ozanne’s first marriage. After the divorce, it has not been known since then that he has been seeing another woman. His current relationship status is single, but he has done many performances with his ex-wife.

She currently has three children, Piper, a girl from her first marriage, and Felix and Oscar, the boys she had with Mark Griffith.
