Comedian and actress Janeane Garofalo claims she was married to producer Rob Cohen for 20 years, but neither of them even knew.
Garofalo explained the story at a New York Comedy Festival reunion for The Ben Stiller Show on Saturday night, saying that Cohen, a producer on The Big Bang Theory, is engaged to marry someone else and his lawyer discovered he and Garofalo’s marriage.
“Rob and I got married, for real, which we had to have a notary dissolve not 30 minutes before we got here tonight,” Garofalo said at the reunion, The New York Post reports. “We were married for 20 years until this evening.”
She further explained the bizarre story, saying “We got married drunk in Vegas . . . We dated for a year, and we got married at a drive-through chapel in a cab. [We thought] you have to go down to the courthouse and sign papers and stuff, so who knew? We were married, and apparently now that [Rob] is getting married for real, his lawyer dug up something.”
USA Today reports that the divorce was finalized at a bank on Saturday, so that Cohen could marry his Jimmy Kimmel Live producer fiancé, Jill Leiderman.
“I’m sure I was terrible,” Garofalo said of dating back then and Cohen responded, “I will confirm that.”
