    No drama here.


    Even though Clint and Dina Eastwood announced that they were separating after 17 years of marriage last week, the brunette beauty is speaking out in support of her husband.


    She took to Twitter to vent her frustrations regarding negative feedback on the social media site and tried to put the name calling and rock throwing to rest.


    "I don't like reading negative things about Clint," she wrote. "He is a wonderful, good natured, brilliant person. No matter what, I attest to that."


    Now that's a powerful message, short and to the point.


    She also tweeted a cryptic message last week that read, "Time and truth go hand in hand. I try to spend TIME being positive while the TRUTH percolates. What do YOU do to patient when you're antsy?"

    The cryptic nature seemed to have sent fans into overdrive, which is possibly what led to her supportive message about Clint.


    Following the news of the split, the veteran actor was seen dropping off a mystery blond at LAX airport--which fueled the rumor mill into thinking there was something more romantic between the two.


    Clint Eastwood's manager, Leonard Hirshan, who typically does not discuss his client's personal life, said he didn't know anything about the situation.


    In fact, when E! News had reached out for confirmation of the Eastwoods' separation last week, Hirshan also said he knew nothing about that, adding, "Clint is shooting a picture right now, unavailable to reach, he doesn't have a press agent and that's all I can tell you."

    Another source, however, did confirm that Clint and Dina have been living apart for some time.


    The 48-year-old and Hollywood icon married in March 1996 and welcomed their daughter, Morgan, 9 months later.


    Dina, a former TV news anchor, costarred with Morgan on the E! reality series "Mrs. Eastwood & Company" in 2012.
