David Archuleta's parents, James Jeffrey and Lupe Marie Archuleta, are divorcing, Radar Online reports. The legal documents obtained by the site show it is James who initiates the divorce, citing irreconcilable differences. The divorce thus marks the second time that James and Lupe seek to dissolve their marriage after reconciling following another divorce attempt back in 2002.

Among the terms of agreement that James and Lupe have in regard of their separation are custody, child support, alimony, and the division of their properties. The twosome who has five children together agrees to share joint physical custody of their three minor children. As for James, he asks that Lupe be ordered to pay an approximate $349 in child support each month.

They, however, agree to split any additional costs regarding the children and have waved any alimony requests. As for their house in Murray, Utah, they have agreed to sell the house and split the proceeds, Radar Online claims.

Comment is yet to be made by James or Lupe regarding the divorce report. Their famous son David also hasn't addressed his parents' split.

i think james and lupe should think once again of this topic because it can effect their kid as well as their life.

I feel a little bit uncomfortable with the timing when the news were spreading. Everytime something good happens to David something negative always spreading right after that. It's like an effort to let David down and keeping him from soaring. But with God's willing and fans' love and support, David will still be soaring high. For him the sky is the limit. I hope that God gives David strength and wisdom to deal with all this stuffs.

Your facts are incorrect. Those are not the current terms of the divorce but apparently you do your "research" by copying the Enquirer. Besides, this is not really news. What's news is David's gorgeous Christmas album and his upcoming tour.

jeff needs to go awayyyyyy... and stay away from david's career... he is more liability than asset, and i am tired, so tired of hearing his name... if i never hear his name again it's too soon... what a two faced lying hypocrit, what a douchebag lying piece of scum, putting his family through this... hope lupe takes his sorry as to the cleaners, and praying david comes out of this stronger, and wiser... yeah - screw you jeff archuleta.. david is who he is not because of anything you did, but in spite of you. go away.

I believe that we only know part of the real story. We read from the news that most of the time are exagerated and full of negativity. Leave the problem to the family. All we should do is continue to pray, to support and to love David because that's what fans are for. I'm sure that everything will be just fine for David because he is such a sweet and kind young guy. May God bless him always.

People have no way of telling the press when to release news. Jeff filed for divorce in Feb. I don't think it is Jeff but possible JIVE that wants news coverage. I think all the fans of David should be praying for everyone in this family, including Jeff. The media reports inaccurate facts so many times. I pray that David's family can figure this all out without anyone saying bad things about anyone in their family. Jeff is David's Father and it would hurt David to hear what you are all saying about his Father. EVERYONE makes mistakes. It is between the family. We should not say anything negative about anyone. We should love and support David and his family. Let them keep this as a private family matter. It should be about David and his music. Which by the way is AMAZING.

It's like if he isn't the center of attention. He does something to be just that. Jeff, we hate you.

How much money does that happy ending creep need to pay for his prostitutes? Just remember Godric Gryffindor was about the only person in the movie whom wasn't killed, thats because he was already dead. Jeff we don't like you and not only did you cheat but you insult with the money thing. You should "ask" for the eletric chair after what you put sweet David and the family through.

Divorce UGH! thoughts are with the children as they deal with all the ugliness surrounding them. Stay strong David. You are a true testament to the power of faith and family. Yours will need you.

It seems that everytime David releases his albums Jeff does something to try to overshadow Davids success. Is his self-esteem really that low?????

I agree with all of you. Last time before his summer tour started, Jeff said the whole prositute crap and then this right after his Christmas album. That's not even fair! I am so happy that I am not the only one that is mad at Jeff. He totally just split the family. Luckily, David is old enough so he decides what he wants to do as well as his siter, Claudia
