0921-patrick-star
ATTENTION RESIDENTS OF BIKINI BOTTOM ... Patrick Star has filed for legal separation from his wife ... and by Patrick Star we mean the guy who voices him on "Spongebob Squarepants."

Actor Bill Fagerbakke -- who also played Dauber on "Coach" back in the day -- filed the separation docs in L.A. County Superior Court, citing "irreconcilable differences."

Bill and his wife Catherine McClenahan (also an actor) were married in 1989 and separated last year. They have no minor children.

According to the docs, Bill wants spousal support.

Pinky out.

He wants spousal support? He is probably making way more money than she is. Doing the voice of Patrick Star all these years must have made him a fortune.

Probably just checked all the boxes on the legal separation form (it happens).
On another note...I didn't know he was Patrick's voice. Awesome!

Probably means he wants to provide spousal support to his wife. She hasn't been in anything much, certainly nothing to top SpongeBob money.

The article is wrong. They have two children. Trust me, he deserves the support.

We'll see if sponge bob square face can keep a straight face as her lawyers pull back the layers of assets.

Poor Patrick Star! :( I hope he gets his spousal support so he dosen't have to put his rock up for sale. It would be heartbreaking to see him raiding the crabshack bins for patties!
