On December 4,1344 he obtained a Papal mandate for the annulment of his marriage to Isabel on the ground of his minority (about 8 at the time of the marriage) and that he had never consented to the marriage.
 
TheComplete Peerage discusses this and states "...Obviously what really happened was this. The powerful Earl desired to get rid of the woman to whom he had been married as a child, and who, since her father's attainder and execution, had ceased to be of any importance, that he might marry the woman with whom he was then living in adultery; and the Pope very obligingly annulled the marriage and bastardised the issue."
