Drake Bell in treatment, separated from his wife Janet Von Schmeling

Troubled Nickelodeon star Drake Bell has split from his wife, actress Janet Von Schmeling, amid their final battles, sources tell Page Six. We are told that they are going to divorce.

Sources also say he has entered treatment.

On December 7 and 8, Bell was spotted “blowing” balloons in his car in the parking lot of a vape shop while his young son sat in the back seat.

Now, an insider has told us that Von Schmeling has “had enough.”

The ‘Drake & Josh’ star, 36, and Von Schmeling, 28, started dating in 2013 and tied the knot in an intimate ceremony in 2018.

It appears that Von Schmeling has moved back to Florida with their son. We learn that she has closed a house in Florida and is receiving support from her family.

Bell and Von Schmeling married in 2018.

“They’ve had some amazing, beautiful times before. He needs to focus on his health and they will be great co-parents in the future,” a source said.

“It’s a bad time for Drake. But he’s a great dad when he’s healthy and sober,” they added.

This isn’t Bell’s first eventful run. In 2021, he pleaded guilty to two counts of attempting to endanger children and spreading harmful information to minors following a 2017 incident.

Prosecutors claimed he met a girl – who is now an adult – online; she later attended one of her concerts in Cleveland in 2017. Cops said Bell sent the girl “inappropriate social media messages.”

In 2015 he was charged with driving under the influence and ex-girlfriend Melissa Lingafelt claimed in 2020 that he verbally and physically abused her, which he denied.
