Actors Diane Lane and Josh Brolin confirmed on Thursday that they are ending their eight-year marriage. Lane cited “irreconcilable differences” as the cause.
“Diane Lane and Josh Brolin have decided to end their marriage,” the statement read. A source also told the publication, "It was a mutual decision. It is very amicable. It's not ugly, it's just over.”
On Friday, TMZ obtained the legal documents, showing that Lane, 48, filed for divorce on Feb. 15 at L.A. County Superior Court. She listed “irreconcilable differences” and wrote that their legal date of separation was Feb. 13.
The actress also wishes to have her legal name changed back to Diane Lane from Diane Lane Brolin.
TMZ reports that the two had a rocky marriage, starting in 2004 when Brolin, 45, was charged with spousal abuse just months after the marriage. Those charges were dropped. In 2008, he was arrested following a bar fight and he was arrested for public intoxication last month. Lane did not attend the Gangster Squad premiere either.
Lane and Brolin did not have any children together. Both have also had previous marriages end in divorce.
Brolin has starred in No Country For Old Men and True Grit. He’s currently working on Oldboy and Sin City: A Dame to Kill For. Lane stars in the upcoming Man of Steel as Martha Kent.
