What a difference a day makes. On Wednesday, we told you that Bart Blastein’s wife of 35 years had filed for divorce, but today, we’re happy to report that the divorce has been called off.

Jil Blatstein filed for divorce in Montgomery County through divorce lawyer Helen Casale on January 7th. Shortly thereafter, we attempted to get the Blatsteins and their lawyer to comment on the apparent dissolution of the marriage, but they didn’t return multiple calls.

After our story ran on Wednesday, Bart Blastein disputed the accuracy of our account but would not provide a comment on the record. According to a report published Thursday morning, he wrote in an email “We are definitely not splitting,” but did not offer further comment. Neither side responded to our requests for comment today. Court records indicate that the complaint was withdrawn on Thursday. Case closed!
