Daniel Baldwin

I'm Dropping the Divorce

I No Longer Fear My Wife

Daniel Baldwin
has reconciled with the wife he claims threatened to kill him last month ... TMZ has learned.

Baldwin had filed for divorce from Joanne Smith last month, after she allegedly went on a violent drunken binge, even allegedly threatening to kill Daniel with a knife in front of their two kids.  Daniel got a restraining order and custody of the kids, claiming Joanne was a real threat to the family.

But Daniel, who says Joanne has an enormous alcohol and drug problem, has had a change of heart.  Daniel went back to court last Thursday, and asked the judge to dismiss the restraining order, which the judge promptly did.

And there's more ...  Daniel and Joanne both have filed legal docs asking the judge to dismiss the divorce petition.  We're told  the petition is before the judge, though it has not been signed yet.

Daniel had no comment.

"Joanne has an enormous alcohol and drug problem"....."dismiss the restraining order"....."asked the judge to dismiss the restraining order," how come we don't see anything about Joane going to rehab? They'll be back in the news next with her in jail and he's in the hospital. lol

@TJ ANYONE can get a restraining order and that would give them temporary custody until things are proven! His wife is not an alcoholic. Its amazing that people believe what comes out of this mans mouth.

These guys are friends of mine. She's not abusive, she's wonderful and a fantastic mother (our daughters are friends) and this all just spun completely out of control and was blown way out of proportion in the media. We were with them the night this all kicked off and they were saying how they loved each other. It's amazing watching it play out in the media as it's so completely distorted!

What you do not know is that Daniel Baldwin only reconciled with his wife a few months ago, not last year. During that time he slept with numerous women, sent pictures of his penis to anyone he could on Twitter, and lied about his life to the media and fan continuously (and still does). Those that know him are well aware that he has NO MONEY what-so-ever, drove his Portland production company into the ground, and only "reconciled" with his wife because his lawyer told him he had no money to divorce her for the amount she wanted. She still drinks. He still drinks. He also pops pills when he can. So surprised TMZ is not doing investigative journalism to follow up on this stuff... just waits till someone exposes the BS celebrities try to pull then prints THAT. Daniel Baldwin is an addict, and he hides behind his so-called "recovery" and his "Christian" beliefs to appear to others as if he is this upright guy. The truth of the matter is he is right in line with Anthony Weiner when it comes to his infidelities, lies, and exhibitionism. That whole matter with Mary Carey was the model he continues to replicate to this day. And this is a man with two young daughters! He is now in England, living with his wife's family, as he left the west coast broke and owing everyone in Portland. He is a disgrace to the Baldwin family. Notice he was the only brother NOT at Alec's wedding? Come on, TMZ! You have some investigative work to do!
