AceShowbiz - Ian Ziering's wife, Erin, has filed for divorce a week after the actor announced the couple had split.
She filed papers in Los Angeles on Tuesday, November 05, according to Entertainment Tonight.
The "Beverly Hills, 90210" star revealed the pair had separated last week, October 31, releasing a statement that read, "It is with a heavy heart that I tell you Erin and I are splitting up. With our hectic work schedules we could not be busier, and over the last few years have grown apart. She is one of the most incredible women I have ever met and the best mom to our kids."
The former couple wed in May 2010 and share two daughters, eight-year-old Mia and Penna, six.
Erin responded with her own post, adding, "After 9 1/2 years of marriage Ian asked for a divorce. After having asked multiple times I knew it was time to give up."
"Knowing that I am not the person to make him happy makes the situation feel more peaceful. The girls and I are doing great and finding gratitude and love in our new life together and rebuilding. Thank you to everyone who has been reaching out and I am sorry if I do not get a chance to respond right now. I appreciate your love and the sisterhood of women who surrounds me during this time (sic)."
Ziering's now-estranged wife is asking for joint legal custody of the former couple's children and spousal support.
