Actress Bianca Kajlich and U.S. soccer star Landon Donovan have been separated for more than a year. But now it’s official Dononvan has filed for divorce.
The World Cup soccer star filed the papers Tuesday, citing irreconcilable differences, Donovan is seeking spousal support, as well as legal fees from his wife.
Spousal support? Kajlich currently plays Jennifer on the CBS comedy Rules of Engagement. How much could she possibly earn compared to a World Cup star?
“We remain the closest of friends and will always be important parts of each other’s lives,” the pair said Tuesday in a joint statement.
The couple were married on December 31, 2006 and separated in October 2009, but numerous reports surfaced they were possibly reconciling after the World Cup this summer.
But days later, rumors were spreading that Donovan had fathered a love child with an unidentified British woman, but that turned out to be false.
He said Kajlich was aware of the rumor and it would not hurt his attempt to reconcile with her. Then they attended the ESPYs in July.
Will their divorce turn ugly?
