Before Aaron Sorkin became a household name, he was a music-theater major at Syracuse University who, soon after graduating in 1983, realized writing was more his speed. After initially settling in New York, he moved to Los Angeles in 1993 to focus on writing “The American President.” As he’d later tell The Independent, the script took him “three years” to complete as he struggled with addiction. It wasn’t until he met Julia Bingham, an entertainment lawyer, that he turned things around. They began dating, and it was Bingham who encouraged Sorkin to enter rehab in 1995 and get sober. Sorkin and Bingham tied the knot in 1996 and welcomed daughter Roxy in 2000, but eventually divorced in 2005. According to The Independent, Sorkin’s “workaholic habits” paired with a relapse pushed their relationship to the brink. Indeed, in 2001, Bingham had to deal with him being arrested for drug possession at the Burbank, California, airport when TSA agents found illegal substances in his carry-on bag. As Entertainment Weekly reported, Sorkin was traveling with magic mushrooms, “a smoking pipe, a small quantity of marijuana, and some other items.”

Following the divorce, Sorkin focused on sobriety, telling The Observer in 2005 that he was “in recovery.” He also focused on raising his daughter, which meant keeping a good relationship with his ex-wife. Proof of their amicable split can be found on Roxy’s Instagram, where she posted a photo of her parents being goofy together in 2020 and wrote, “Thankful for my family.”
