Star Trek vet William Shatner, 89, still wears his wedding band despite divorcing his wife a month ago as he plays it safe with a mask in LA
He finalized his divorce more than a month ago with a $2 million payment to his fourth wife Elizabeth Shatner.
But on Friday Star Trek vet William Shatner was still wearing his wedding ring when heading out in Los Angeles.
The 89-year-old actor followed a city order to wear a mask in public places as he ran some errands.

Shatner was dressed casually for a day out in a dark blue T-shirt and gray trousers.
He added brown hiking boots and a silver luxury wristwatch.
The TV vet was seen carrying some items out to his SUV in a Trader Joe’s shopping bag before heading out.
Though he was taking Covid-19 precautions seriously by wearing a mask and practicing social distancing, William came under fire in mid-March for making an appearance at a screening of Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan, followed by a meet-and-greet with VIP ticket holders.

The remainder of Shatner’s tour was canceled, and he has been practicing social distancing from home since then.

Earlier in March, William reached a settlement in his divorce from his fourth wife, Elizabeth Shatner, whom he married in 2001.
The terms included a $2 million lump sum payment to her and a separation of their equine possessions.
Elizabeth took ownership of two of their horses, Belle Reve’s So Photogenic and Pebbles, while he got another two, Renaissance Man’s Medici and Powder River Shirley, as well as all horse equipment and ‘all horse semen’ for him to pursue breeding.
Shatner also got to keep his two dogs, Macchiato and Double Espresso.

He maintained his Studio City home and a ranch in Three Rivers, California (near Sequoia National Park), but Elizabeth took control of their Malibu Cove home and their dwelling in Versailles, Kentucky.
The Boston Legal star was previously married to Gloria Rand (1956–1969), Marcy Lafferty (1973–1996) and Nerine Kidd (1997–1999).
Nerine died in 1999 after being found at the bottom of their backyard pool.
The incident was labeled an accidental drowning after tests revealed she had alcohol and Valium in her system.
