AceShowbiz - Candice Accola has taken a step to make her separation from Joe King legal. Around three months after splitting from her husband, the Caroline Forbes depicter on "The Vampire Diaries" finally filed for divorce from him to end their seven years of marriage.
According to court documents obtained by Us Weekly, the 35-year-old actress submitted the divorce papers on April 28, citing "irreconcilable differences" as the reason for their separation. In her filing, she noted that she moved to Nashville after calling it quits with her spouse in January while he has remained in Brentwood, Tennesse.
Earlier in April, eagle-eyed fans noticed that Candice has deleted all of her Instagram posts. They also pointed out that the mother of two was not wearing her wedding ring in recent pictures.
As for The Fray guitarist and co-founder, he also took down photos of him and his now-estranged wife from his Instagram page but not the family portraits. Despite the split, the musician and the "After We Collided" star are still following one another on the photo-sharing platform.
Candice and Joe were set up by Nina Dobrev after they filmed DirecTV's 2012 "Celebrity Beach Bowl". The pair later tied the knot in New Orleans in 2014, a little over a year after they got engaged in Florence, Italy.
The now-exes share two children together, 6-year-old Florence and 1-year-old Josephine. As for Joe, he is also a father to Ava and Elise, whom he shares with his previous wife, Julie.
Despite going through a divorce, Candice managed to enjoy her life. Earlier this month, the former CW star took a trip to Europe with her friends and former co-stars Michael Trevino, Michael Malarkey as well as David Anders. Sharing a photo from her vacation, she wrote on Instagram, "Tuscan cottage core is my 35 year old vibe."
