PHOTOS! Here are pictures of Carrie Otis Mickey Rourke’s ex wife. Divorce from Carrie Otis (often wrongly spelled Kerry Otis) says Rourke was the worse loss of his life.
Back in 2003, Carrie Otis told press about her decision to leave Rourke.
“I had become an embarrassment and I was tired of waking up without remembering what I had done the night before.
“Fortunately, for most of us, the body begins to send signals and you start to realise that if you keep banging your head against a brick wall you’re going to really hurt yourself. I had to be strong and leave my husband….
“I wasn’t good for him and today he thanks me because it helped him to face up to his fears and make changes to his life. Today we’re friends and we always will be.”
Rourke this week also lost his closest friend, his dog. Rourke is expected to win Best Actor this Sunday at the Oscars.
