After in early June Mark-Paul Gosselaar announced that he and wife of almost 14-year Lisa Ann Russell split, Gosselaar has taken action to make the separation official. E! Online reported that the "Saved by the Bell" actor filed for divorce in L.A. County Superior Court on June 18.
The site further reported that in the petition, Gosselaar cited irreconcilable differences and he is willing to pay spousal and child support. Gosselaar and Ann Russell have two kids together, 6-year-old Michael Charles and 4-year-old Ava Lorenn.
Mark-Paul Gosselaar and Lisa Ann Russell, who exchanged vows on August 26, 1996, have not yet revealed the reason behind their separation. When announcing the break-up, a rep for Gosselaar only said, "Mark-Paul Gosselaar and his wife Lisa are currently separated, but they both remain focused on their family and are jointly committed to their children."
Previous report mentioned the split was caused by Lisa Ann's love of night life in Hollywood. However, a source has cleared out the allegation, telling People "The reports saying that she's out partying aren't true. She's a great mom. The two of them couldn't be more hands on with the kids. Their number one focus is definitely their family."
