Drake Bell and Janet Von Schmeling Split Amidst Troubles

Nickelodeon star Drake Bell and his actress wife Janet Von Schmeling have called it quits amidst his latest struggles. Sources exclusively told Page Six that Von Schmeling had enough after Bell was spotted huffing balloons in his car while their young son sat in the back seat.

The Drake & Josh alum, aged 36, and Von Schmeling, aged 28, started dating in 2013 and tied the knot in an intimate ceremony in 2018. In July 2021, the couple welcomed a baby boy.

According to insiders, Drake Bell endangered his young son during a December 2022 incident where he repeatedly inhaled a pink balloon while sitting in his car in the parking lot of a California vape shop. The eyewitness recounted that Bell repeated the action “six or seven times” over the course of 30 minutes before eventually carrying his child out of the car.

Following the incident, Janet Von Schmeling has moved back to Florida with their son and has received support from her family after purchasing a new home.

“They had some incredibly beautiful times before. He needs to focus on being healthy, and they’ll be great co-parents in the future,” said the source. “It’s a bad moment in time for Drake. But he is a great dad when he is healthy and sober.”

Despite their split, the couple plans to remain co-parents to their child.
