Patrick Dempsey and his wife Jillian Fink overcame the odds and put their broken marriage back together, but RadarOnline.com has exclusively learned the cracks are beginning to show again.
A source claims Dempsey and Fink are "at each other's throats" over their 14-year-old daughter Tallulah, who is desperate to break into show business.
"Patrick's really unhappy about Tallulah's wishes but it's very difficult as she sees other Pacific Palisades rich kids going to premieres and events with their parents and famous friends and she wants the same," said the source.
The biggest problem with her wishes is that Dempsey, 50, knows firsthand how tempting the wild side of show business can be and he hopes to keep his little girl away from the industry as long as possible.
"He and Jillian are arguing over how strict they need to be — he wants a curfew while Jillian thinks he needs to trust her," said the source.
"The protective papa bear is coming out to roar!"
