True Blood actress Rutina Wesley and husband Jacob Fishel are calling it quits.
Wesley filed documents to end her eight-year marriage on August 16 citing irreconcilable differences, TMZ reports.
Wesley is asking that the judge reject any request for spousal support Fishel may seek as she makes more money than him in her successful role as Tara in the hit HBO series. Wesley has starred in True Blood since 2008.
According to People, Fishel and Wesley have been separated since July and have no children together. The pair met while attending Julliard and wed in 2005.
The 34-year-old actress previously gushed about Fishel in an interview with Essence saying, “We thought, 'If we could spend four years together at this crazy school, then we can make it the rest of our lives.' He's an amazing actor, cook and husband. I enjoy him immensely."
Neither partner has released a statement following the announcement of their split.
