Former teen heartthrob and star of the hit Nickelodeon series Drake & Josh, Drake Bell, has been in the news lately for his personal life. After being reported missing and allegedly threatening suicide, his wife of four years, Janet Von Schmeling, has filed for divorce.

Drake Bell’s Wife Files For Divorce

Bell has been a household name since the early 2000s, when he starred in Drake & Josh. Unfortunately, as he’s gotten older, he’s faced some personal struggles. His recent disappearance and divorce filing have brought those struggles to the forefront. With a one-year-old son involved and mental health concerns, the situation is complicated.

Recently, Bell was reported missing by his family after he allegedly threatened suicide in response to child custody issues with his wife, Janet Von Schmeling. Fortunately, he was found safe and sound, and deputies took action to ensure he received a mental health evaluation.

Shortly after this incident, Von Schmeling filed for divorce, citing irreconcilable differences. She’s seeking primary legal and physical custody of their one-year-old son, Wyatt, and spousal support. The couple had been married for four years but separated in September 2022.

This isn’t the first time Bell has faced personal struggles. In 2014, he filed for bankruptcy, citing debts of over $581,000. He’s also been arrested for DUI and faced legal trouble for not paying taxes.

Drake Bell Has Found Success Despite The Recent Struggles

Despite the recent struggles, Bell has also had some positive moments in his personal life. In 2019, he announced that he had married Von Schmeling and that they were expecting a child. Wyatt was born in 2021.

Bell has also continued to pursue his music career, releasing several albums and touring regularly. In recent years, he’s focused on a more Latin-inspired sound and has collaborated with artists such as Farruko and Ozuna.

As Bell navigates these personal struggles, it’s clear that mental health is a priority. In an interview, he spoke candidly about his struggles with depression and anxiety and the importance of seeking help. It’s a message that’s important for anyone who may be going through a difficult time.

In conclusion, Bell’s personal life has been marked by both ups and downs. While he’s faced some serious struggles, he’s also had positive moments and continues to pursue his passions. As he moves forward, let’s hope that he’s able to prioritize his mental health and find happiness in his personal life.
