Shed no more tears for Joshua Jackson. After splitting up with Diane Kruger, his girlfriend of 10 years who unceremoniously went on to make a baby with Normal Reedus very quickly, it looks like Joshua is also ready to move on in a permanent and legally binding way. According to The Daily Mail, Joshua was seen in Beverly Hills with his current girlfriend, actress Jodie Turner-Smith, getting a marriage license. You might be saying to yourself, “ah, that’s nice”, and it is. The couple were first seen doing grown-folks stuff together at Usher’s 40th birthday party back in October of last year. But DM says there’s a little extra spice to this tale of boy-meets-girl because just 6 weeks ago, boy’s lips met a different girl when he was spotted dropping her off at the airport. Pacey would never!
Thankfully, it seems like they’ve got it all figured out. Here’s the couple on the day they went to handle their official business.
Us Weekly reports:
The Dawson’s Creek alum, 41, and the Last Ship actress, 32, were seen at a Beverly Hills courthouse on Friday, August 2, in photos published by the Daily Mail. The website reports that the pair got what appeared to be a marriage license that they carried out of the building in a yellow envelope. The license is valid for 90 days.
The couple’s show of togetherness comes almost two months after the When They See Us actor was spotted kissing a mystery woman at Los Angeles International Airport.
As Us Weekly previously reported, Jackson was seen cozying up to the woman as he dropped her off after a lunch date on June 13. The lip lock came two days after he attended a party in NYC with Turner-Smith.

Jodie is new on the scene and will be making her feature film debut in Queen and Slim, written by Lena Waithe, directed by Melina Matsoukas and co-starring Get Out’s Daniel Kaluuya. E! News says that Joshua previously said he and Diane never got married because they weren’t religious and as children of divorce, neither of them took marriage “at face value”. But then again, maybe Diane just never looked at Joshua the way Jodie apparently does. Which is buck ass naked.
By the way, Jodie is Jamaican and will be playing none other than Grace Jones in an upcoming Marvin Gaye biopic called Sexual Healing.
I hope Joshua sends Norman a Thank You card and nice fruit basket.
