9 True Facts Behind Alicia Silverstone’s Uneasy Divorce

Alicia Silverstone was the rising star of the 90s with movies like ‘Clueless’ and ‘Batman.’ She had become America’s sweetheart after only a few years in the spotlight. The actress met her future husband on a fateful night in 1997 outside a movie theater. Travelfuntu has the scoop.

1. Fated for each other.

Christopher Jarecki was the lead singer of S.T.U.N., a band from Los Angeles. They sang about classism, socialism and more controversial topics which clicked perfectly with Silverstone who was an activist for animal rights.  They began dating immediately as they had many things in common.

They were both vegans who wanted to fight for people’s rights and soon enough, Christopher moved into her environmentally-friendly house. Jarecki proposed in 2004 and Alicia said this to People Magazine, ‘He was waiting on our old wicker love seat, ring in hand, with the most beautiful proposal any best friend could ever give.’

2. Planning their wedding.

They planned their nuptials together but it was nothing like you expect. They had candles made of beeswax, the bar was fashioned out of barrels, they had bamboo chairs and the paper for the invitations was recycled. Back then, the concept of hipster hadn’t been invented but it was definitely a hipster wedding.

It took place in Lake Tahoe and they were blessed with some of that water. Alicia was enamored by the setting. When the minister finally announced they were wed, they kissed and the actress recalls it as their best kiss ever. They danced to The Beatles and ate vegan burgers all night.

3. Married Life and Child.

The couple’s life was going pretty well with both their careers taking off but in 2011, their world turned upside down. Alicia gave birth to her son, Bear Blu, on May 5, 2011. He became an immediate hit on social media as the paparazzi often took pictures of him at parks and fairs.

Sadly, Alicia and Christopher’s marriage was going downhill and not even the happiness of a new baby could save it. They endured things for a couple more years, probably hoping that their child would make them happy.

4. Separation.

They separated officially on March 15, 2016, when Christopher moved away from their eco-friendly home. It was right around the time of their 11th anniversary, which makes it even sadder. Bear Blu was only six years old at the time and already facing such hardship.

However, the couple didn’t announce their separation until two years later in 2018. After going public, Silverstone filed for divorce to end their marriage once and for all. The hippie/hipster couple was finally done despite their vegan dreams.

5. Their statement.

According to a statement they released, ‘They still deeply love and respect each other and remain very close friends but have mutually decided to separate after being together for 20 years.’ However, there’s always a reason why couples decide to call it quits.

The official cause of divorce was irreconcilable differences but they wanted joint custody of their child so it must have been a little amicable. In terms of assets, they had signed a prenuptial agreement which stated that everything should be split in half after paying taxes and debts.

6. Moving on.

After their announcement, the media went crazy wanting to know more about what happened. Alicia got tired of the scrutiny and decided to take her son to Hawaii. She has never gone into detail about the separation and prefers to focus on Bear Blue, as you can see on her social media.

However, people kept looking for a reason for their divorce and it seems that the root of the problem was Alicia’s changing lifestyle. She had been raised in a stable home in Los Angeles but started getting into her activism more, to the point that it worried those around her.

7. Her book.

Her behavior became even crazier after becoming a mother and some things she believed in were pretty controversial. After the birth of her child, Silverstone published a book about maternity but it was completely bonkers; titled ‘The Kind Mama: A Simple Guide to Supercharged Fertility, a Radiant Pregnancy, a Sweeter Birth and a Healthier, More Beautiful Beginning.’

Her veganism went into overdrive as she believes that it prevents and cures most illnesses. She thinks that pregnant women shouldn’t eat meat or consume dairy because those foods leave your baby floating in ‘toxic.’ You have to eat a vegan diet and everything has to be organic.

The actress also hates diapers of any kind. You have to take your baby to the toilet when he has to go. Silverstone also thinks that a family should sleep together in one bed; the baby shouldn’t sleep in a crib. She also has an aversion to tampons.

‘Unfortunately, feminine-care manufacturers aren’t required to tell you what’s in their products, which means that no one’s talking about the potential pesticide residues from non-organic cotton and the ‘fragrances’ containing hormone-upsetting, fertility-knocking phthalates that are inside of you.’

8. Fighting against the media.

Naturally, a lot of people had problems with Alicia’s views and parenting style. But a bigger problem was a video she uploaded on social media of her feeding her baby like a bird; she chewed and then fed it to Bear Blue.

‘I can understand that it would make some people feel uncomfortable, possibly, because it’s new to them, but I do want you to know that this has been going on for thousands of years – still going on all over the place and is completely natural.’

Silverstone continued saying that she had no regrets about posting the video and was not worried like the rest of the public. ‘My kid is healthy. My kid’s the happiest baby ever. When he was about 5 months old, I’d be eating and he would come at me with his little mouth open and be in my mouth trying to get the food out of my mouth.’

9. Christopher’s silence.

While the public went after Alicia and her parenting style after the publication of her book and weird habits, Jarecki remained completely absent. He hasn’t come forward to defend his ex-wife or expressed any kind of opinion on the matter.

We wonder what is happening in his life. Most vegan people don’t make such dramatic changes in their life. They’re just like anyone but don’t eat meat or any products from animals. However, hating on diapers, saying that families need to sleep in the same bed and even feeding your baby like a bird, is just too much.

While we might never know the real reason for their divorce, it’s clear that they must have had differing opinions. Christopher might not have been happy to take their vegan lifestyle to such extremes. But we all have the right to choose our lives as long as it doesn’t affect anybody else. We wish them well in the future.
