London, June 23 (IANS) Comedian David Walliams has stopped wearing his wedding ring as he needs to “move on” from model Lara Stone after their split, reports say.
The 43-year-old star was seen without his wedding ring for the first time since he and the Dutch model embarked on a trial separation in February at the Communications Business Awards here and insiders say he has accepted his marriage is over.
“David was holding out hope that he and Lara would stay together. But after going to America this month he realised he needs to try and move on. This is the first step in that direction,” a source told mirror.co.uk.
Walliams, who has two-year-old son Alfred with 31-year-old Stone, credits his friends for helping him cope up with the split and is now throwing himself into work, with US movie bosses keen to turn one of his children’s books into a film.
The source added: “He met up with James Corden while he was in Los Angeles, it helped to clear his head and his friends have rallied round, helping him to move on with the split. There is a lot of interest in David in America. His children’s books ‘Mr. Stink’ and ‘Billionaire Boy’ are the most likely candidates.
