‘Frances Ha’ Star Files For Divorce From Husband Chris Kantrowitz
Besides being the daughter of one of the biggest musicians of all time, Mickey is well known for roles in critically acclaimed films ‘Frances Ha’ and ‘Mistress America.’ Sumner also portrayed Patti Smith in CBGB in 2013. At this point, it’s unclear what the details are surrounding the couple’s split — and her ex-husband has yet to respond to the divorce filing.
According to reports, Kantrowitz is an entrepreneur in gaming, technology, and music. “He began his career as the co-founder of 3D Groove, an online gaming technology company. In 2006, Chris co-founded Frank the Plumber, a leading concert design company working with artists such as: The Strokes, Akon, Stevie Wonder, Beyonce, Katy Perry, and John Legend,” his bio reads.
Sting’s Daughter Opens Up About Raising A Child With Special Needs
Earlier this year, Mickey opened up about her 4-year-old son’s special needs and how raising a child who can’t talk or walk has wreaked havoc on her mental health. The 37-year-old actress says her son has developmental issues, but doctors are still not clear about what is wrong with him.
“At this moment in time, Akira is nonverbal, he is not walking, he is hard of hearing in both ears, has hypotonia, and global delays,” she wrote in an essay from Romper.com.
She continued, “My experience of motherhood has been a rollercoaster of emotions and mental health challenges. I’ve been diagnosed with postpartum anxiety and postpartum OCD.” According to Sumner, the baby was born at Sting’s Malibu estate, and after a difficult birth was forced to rush her boy to a hospital after he was not latching on and turned yellow. As you can imagine, seeing her tiny baby in an incubator hooked up to wires and sensors was a horrific process.
“I watched myself move toward the precipice of madness — I could see the edge of losing my mind, I thought, ‘They’re gonna have to take me away. They’re gonna have to strap me down, put me away and tranquilize me.’ I was so close, it looked so inviting, and then I heard a voice inside my head: ‘You’re a mother now. You can’t go anywhere. You have to stay,'” Mickey said.
Adding, “On days where my anxiety creeps up on me, when I worry about his future, this is what I always come back to — People feel good in his presence. He is like sunshine. My tiny mighty sun.”
The divorce case is ongoing.
