(Newser) – Danny DeVito, ladies' man? Yes, that's apparently what lies behind his split with wife Rhea Perlman after 30 years together—and now a source is claiming DeVito romanced a beautiful but gullible film crew worker back in the 1990s. On the set of Hoffa, he would take her on long "limo rides" so they could "canoodle in the back before going back to his room together," a source tells Radar Online.

The fling was "kind of pathetic" because the woman—"a naive kid from Pittsburgh"—was "just having sex with him in hopes that he'd make her a star," says the insider. Sadly, she pretended "to really like him," the source adds, "and worse, Danny [was] preying on vulnerable young girls like that." Is this sour grapes from a source close to Perlman? Who knows, but you can read the full story here.
