Bigamy suit dropped against Reese Witherspoon's father

Posted: Updated:
NASHVILLE, TN (WSMV) -

A bigamy lawsuit against actress Reese Witherspoon's father and his new wife has been dropped.

Mary Elizabeth Witherspoon sued her husband John Witherspoon after she learned John had married his second wife, Tricianna Taylor, in January.

The Witherspoons had separated in 1996 but never divorced.

"Dismissal of the lawsuit by the Witherspoons speaks volumes as to the innocence of Ms. Taylor," said Taylor's attorney, Joe Brandon. "With that said, their malicious and intentional allegations are simply unacceptable."

Since word of the second marriage, Reese Witherspoon has been trying to gain conservatorship over her father.

Records of those proceedings are sealed.
