Kate Beckinsale’s Husband Len Wiseman Files For Divorce

It's divorce for Kate Beckinsale and director Len Wiseman.

Director Len Wiseman files for divorce from Kate Beckinsale

and her director husband, Len Wiseman, are getting divorced.

Wiseman filed for dissolution of their 12-year marriage on Friday, citing irreconcilable differences.

According to court documents, the couple’s date of separation is “to be determined” and Wiseman has requested that the court’s ability to award spousal support to either party be terminated.

The director also asked that both he and Beckinsale pay lawyers’ fees.

Last November, a source confirmed to People that the actress and the director, both 43, had separated with “no drama.”

The split had been suspected for months, and around that time Wiseman was seen on the town with model CJ Franco and without his wedding ring.

He and Beckinsale met in 2003 when she was starring as Selene in the first “Underworld” movie, which Wiseman directed. They married in 2004.

Another insider added that neither Beckinsale nor Wiseman had recently been wearing their wedding rings.

In addition to kicking off the franchise that revolves around dueling clans of vampires and lycans, Wiseman directed “Underworld: Evolution,” its second installment; the two also worked together on the 2012 version of “Total Recall” with Colin Farrell. Wiseman, who is an executive producer of Fox’s “Sleepy Hollow,” has been a producer on all five “Underworld” flicks, with the newest one starring Beckinsale, “Underworld: Blood Wars,” set to be released on Jan. 6. 

The couple have no children together, but Beckinsale has a teenage daughter, Lily Sheen, from her previous relationship with Showtime’s “Masters of Sex” star Michael Sheen, whom she was with for eight years and still considers a close friend.
