On 2002, Ross Kemp married Rebekah Wade, the editor of The Sun. So far so good in the marriage everyone assumed. On November 3, 2005, Wade was arrested that morning due to her attacking Kemp. She was later released without any domestic charges and no other actions were taken. Kemp had also refused any medical attention for his swollen lip.
In February 2007, Kemp and Wade were separated and filed for divorced. Two years later their divorce was finalized in March of 2009. Kemp did admit that he was unfaithful to Wade.
