AceShowbiz - Kate Bosworth is pulling the plug on her marriage. The 39-year-old actress has just filed for divorce from her husband Michael Polish, after announcing her separation from the director last year.
Kate filed the divorce papers with the Los Angeles County Courts on Friday, July 15. According to court documents obtained by The Blast, the model cited "irreconcilable differences" as the reason for the split.
Kate and Michael tied the knot in 2013 after getting engaged a year before. She announced their split in August 2021 after eight years of marriage. "Our hearts are full, as we have never been so enamored and deeply grateful for one another as we do in this decision to separate," she said in a statement at the time, adding that their "love will never end."
The former pair don't have any child together, but she was step-mother to Michael's daughter from a previous marriage, Jasper. She once gushed about her step-daughter, saying it's "hands-down the greatest unexpected gift of her life." The exes remain friendly, having been spotted posing together at an event in May of this year.
Kate has since moved on by dating Justin Long, which news first broke in January of this year. The "Live Free or Die Hard" actor confirmed their relationship in May during his appearance on "Dear Chelsea" podcast. When host Chelsea Handler congratulated her guest on being "newly in love," he replied, "Yes, and she loves you. She is a really big fan of yours, personally."
A few days later, the couple made their relationship Instagram official. The "Accepted" actor posted a photo of himself and the "Superman Returns" actress sharing a pint of Guinness while on vacation in Ireland. In another cute selfie, the two were seen taking a sip of the foam at the top of the drink at the same time, then pulling back and smiling with a beer mustache on their top lips.
Later in June, Kate marked Justin's birthday with a sweet Instagram post. "You were born today and the world lit up brighter than it had known," she wrote along with their pictures together.
She continued gushing about her boyfriend, "...and years later you met a girl who's life was disassembled / rearranged but you were patient and with time she fell in love now she has a glow (one that was forgotten long ago) she is so grateful *more than you'll ever know Happy Birthday @justinlong you make me smile so big my face hurts xx Thank you for creating peace in my heart since the day we met."
