In May of 2022, the then 62-year-old filed for divorce from her husband of 11 years, Tom Vitale.

In 2020, Van Halen passed away after a lung cancer diagnosis. In her memoir, "Enough Already: Learning to Love the Way I Am Today," Bertinelli described Van Halen as her "soulmate." It was clear that this pair had a lot of love for each other long after their split. "'I love you' are the last words Ed says to Wolfie and me, and they are the last words we say to him before he stops breathing," she wrote, per People.
