Martyn Eaden is a journalist, freelance copywriter, and screenplay writer. He has written some screenplays that have been made into successful movies. However, Martyn really became popular when he got romantically linked to Chrissy Metz (a popular singer and actress). While Martyn and Chrissy are no longer together, the actress’ popularity and interesting love life have kept many interested in the men she once called hers, Eaden inclusive.
Martyn Eaden Bio
Martyn Eaden was born around the 1970s in the United Kingdom where he spent his childhood. Eaden has managed to keep clear of any form of social media. Though details about his education are unknown, Eaden is obviously a smart guy judging from his successful career.
Martyn Eaden met Chrissy in 2008 after she relocated to Los Angeles to pursue a career in acting. It was love at first sight for the duo as they soon realized they couldn’t live without each other. Without wasting much time, they tied the knot in an emotional but private ceremony at a Santa Barbara courthouse. None of their family members could make it to the ceremony but that didn’t deter the couple.
Their marriage went on smoothly for a while before they started having some marital problems. While nothing has been confirmed, it has been rumoured that the issue in their marriage coincided with the time Chrissy began to feature as ‘Kate Pearson’ in television series This Is Us. The TV series is about Kate’s weight loss journey which resonated with millions of people. Chrissy got an Emmy and Golden Globe nomination for her believable and outstanding performance on the show.
Martyn Eaden, on the other hand, might not have been able to cope with his wife’s newly acquired fame. He just wanted to live a regular life. He appeared supportive of his spouse initially, but the couple finally separated 5 years after their marriage with their divorce finalized in December 2015. Martyn cited irreconcilable differences as the reason for seeking a divorce. The couple didn’t have any children together during their marriage.
According to research, a screenplay writer earns between $60,000 to $100,000. While nothing has been confirmed about Martyn Eaden’s earnings, one can only assume that they are around this figure. Owing to the uncertainty surrounding his earnings, it leaves not enough facts to determine the writer’s net worth. On the other hand, his ex, Chrissy Metz, is said to be worth about $7 million.
Facts About Chrissy Metz’s Ex
1. He was Chrissy’s first love
Chrissy’s mother confirmed this fact and shared how devastated she was when he filed for divorce.

Martyn got the judge to declare that his petition was uncontested and the divorce was granted.
2. Divorce settlement
Martyn Eaden refused spousal support as part of their divorce settlement. While Chrissy was an upcoming actress when they met and got married, she was able to do well for herself during a short period of time and already had a substantial fortune. Martyn, on the other hand, asked the judge to grant him sole proprietorship of his car and bank accounts.
3. Successful screenplays

As of the time that Eaden and Chrissy were a thing, she wasn’t as big of a star as she is right now, thus, in reference to her marriage, many have often mistaken her ex-husband Eaden to be Stancil whom she began dating post-fame. It was with Stancil that she made many red carpet appearances where they were photographed together, these photos of them have been wrongfully used in reference to her and her ex-husband Martyn Eaden.
