‘It was a financial shock’: Christina Ricci reveals she had to sell her handbag collection to help pay for divorce from James Herdigen

Christina Ricci sold her handbag collection to pay for her divorce battle.

The actress Wednesday separated from James Herdijn — the father of her eight-year-old son Freddie — in 2020 after seven years of marriage and the following year obtained a restraining order against her ex-husband, citing severe physical and emotional abuse.

The 42-year-old star admitted that the resulting court battles were expensive, but she managed to put her extravagant fashion “to good.”

She told The Sunday Times Style Magazine: ‘There are certain things I’ve collected, certain bags. I’ve had a huge collection of Chanel bags for a while, but I’ve sold a lot of stuff.

When asked why she sold it at the time, she said, “Well, some of life’s traumas go along with financial shocks, extended court situations, custody cases, and resistance to injunctions.

Having said that, I’m totally fine, no problem. But I’ve learned to use these investment pieces in different ways. I also had a beautiful Chanel jewelry collection which I put to good use.

Christina has spoken in the past about having a “messy” childhood and not seeing her father since she was a teenager, and has admitted that her unhealthy relationship choices stemmed from her upbringing.

And when asked if she made unhealthy decisions in her personal life because of her childhood, she said: Yes, 100 percent.

‘I think with these things.’ . . Well, I can’t speak for everyone, but it took me a long time to admit to myself what was going on, and what it should be called.”

“Denial is very powerful. Of course you don’t want to accept that the worst possible thing has happened and that you’re putting yourself in that situation. So it took me a really long time to realize that.

The Yellowjackets actress hasn’t kept any memorabilia from her career in the ’90s due to her childhood trauma, but her new husband, Mark Hampton — the father of her 11-month-old daughter Cleo — has been trying to track down some old journals to show her it’s okay to appreciate her memories from that time.

‘Once upon a time I had to throw away a lot of the things I had accumulated in my youth and it hurt,’ she said, ‘so from then on I didn’t necessarily want to collect much. I think the idea of ​​potentially losing things you care enough to save…

It’s hard to explain without this turning into a therapy session, but when I was younger, one of the things that could happen was personal possessions were taken away.

You had to lie about the stuff being your favorite thing, because if it was your favorite thing, it would be taken, but if you weren’t interested, you should keep it.

You had to pretend you liked certain things you didn’t, so I always had a fake favorite color.

“The interesting thing with Mark is that he was horrified that I didn’t save anything, so he goes on eBay and finds my old magazine covers, which is really cool. He’s trying to show me that it’s safe to get these things.
