Patrick Dempsey: The Younger Years

at . Comments

We came across an old picture of Patrick Dempsey that we couldn't pass up sharing. The woman with him in this picture is Rochelle Parker, also known as Rocky Parker, Dempsey's former manager -- and wife.

The First Mrs. McDreamy

The reason pictures of the future Dr. McDreamy and Parker are circulating is that she apparently accused Dempsey of abuse during their 1992 divorce proceedings, then said she lied about it... then said the National Enquirer knew it wasn't true but ran the allegations anyway.

"I never confirmed to the Enquirer that the story... is true. To the contrary, I have previously stated that such allegations are untrue. In fact, the Enquirer offered to pay me money to confirm such allegations, which offer I refused," Parker said.

Whatever. Just take your mind off this non-story by looking at this far-superior Patrick Dempsey picture instead!
