AceShowbiz - Alicia Silverstone and Christopher Jarecki's marriage can't be saved. After announcing their split last February, they will make it official with Alicia having officially filed for divorce from her husband of almost 13 years.
The "Clueless" alum filed the divorce papers on Friday, May 25, The Blast reports. According to the documents, they have split for more than two years, as Alicia listed the date of separation as March 15, 2016. She cited irreconcilable differences as the cause.
The 41-year-old actress requested both joint legal and physical custody of their 7-year-old son Bear. They have a prenuptial agreement that will dictate spousal support and how they will split their assets.
Alicia and Christopher, who is best known as a former frontman of S.T.U.N., started dating after they met outside a movie theater in 1997. They had been dating for eight years before tying the knot on June 11, 2005 in a beachfront ceremony at Lake Tahoe. They got engaged about a year before their wedding.
The couple welcomed their first child together, son Bear Blu, on May 5, 2011. The pair, who live in an eco-friendly Los Angeles house, have been keeping details of their marriage and life private. A vegan, Alicia has endorsed PETA activities and has published two nutrition books.
They shocked everyone when announcing their split earlier this year. "They still deeply love and respect each other and remain very close friends but have mutually decided to separate after being together for 20 years. They have a son together who they will continue to co-parent," her representative said in a statement at the time.
Alicia will lead new sitcom "American Woman", which is set to premiere June 7 on Paramount Network. The Golden Globe-nominated actress also has a role in recently-released film "Book Club" about four friends in their 60s who read "Fifty Shades of Grey" as part of their monthly book club.
