Christina Ricci Files for Divorce Following Altercation With Husband

The 'Casper' actress has filed papers to end her seven years of marriage roughly a week after cops were called to her home following altercation with estranged husband.

AceShowbiz - Actress Christina Ricci has called time on her marriage after obtaining an emergency protective order against her husband, James Heerdegen.

The "Casper" star hit headlines on Wednesday (01Jul20) after it was revealed police were called to her California home on 25 June (20) to respond to a domestic battery call.

Heerdegen is alleged to have spit on Ricci during the altercation, and although he wasn't arrested, she lodged a formal report and subsequently obtained a restraining order against the film producer.

Now the actress has officially called it quits, filing divorce papers in Los Angeles County Superior Court on Thursday morning.

According to TMZ, Ricci cited irreconcilable differences for the split, and is seeking sole legal and physical custody of their son, five-year-old Freddie.

The estranged couple met on the set of TV series "Pan Am" in 2011 and began dating the following year. Ricci and Heerdegen became engaged in May 2013 and wed five months later. They are not thought to have signed a prenuptial agreement.
