Melissa Gilbert has filed for divorce from her husband Bruce Boxleitner after 16 years of marriage, reports People. The 47-year-old former Little House on the Prairie actress announced the couple’s separation in March, and cited irreconcilable differences in her filing on Monday in Los Angeles Superior Court. She seeks joint custody of their 15-year-old son Michael, and has requested to not pay spousal support to 61-year-old fellow actor Boxleitner, who recently appeared in TRON: Legacy. Her sister, Roseanne star Sara Gilbert, broke up with her partner of 10 years earlier this week.

Reps for David Duchovny and wife Téa Leoni have confirmed that the actors are separated.
It’s been a rocky road for the couple since life imitated art and the Californication star, 50, checked into rehab for sexual addiction in 2008. That same year, Duchovny filed suit against the U.K.’s Daily Mail for alleging that he was having an affair with a tennis instructor. The Mail later issued a retraction. Despite the escalating scandal, Duchovny reconciled with 45-year-old Leoni after a few months apart.
Duchovny met Leoni in 1992 when they both interviewed for a guest spot on the Tonight Show. They reconnected in 1997 and married that same year. After 14 years of marriage, they have two children – daughter Madelaine West, 12, and son Kyd, 9.
