Some unfortunate news has come in about a beloved Hollywood couple. After 25 years of marriage, the couple has decided to call it quits.
"My Big Fat Greek Wedding" star Nia Vardalos has decided she has enough and filed for divorce from husband Ian Gomez.
The 55-year-old actress filed for divorce on Tuesday in Los Angeles County. She stated that the divorce was due to irreconcilable differences, according to PEOPLE.
Vardalos said that she separated from Gomez over a year ago in June 2017. In a joint statement the couple said the following:
“We’ve been respectfully separated for a lengthy period of time. Our relationship became a friendship so the decision to end the marriage is completely mutual and amicable. It is our hope that decency will prevail on the reporting of this story which will soon be yesterday’s news. Thank you for respecting our privacy.”
Vardalos and Gomez, 53, got married in September 1995. They share an 11-year-old daughter named Ilaria Vardalos Gomez whom they adopted in 2008. Vardalos is requesting joint legal and physical custody of their daughter.
As for spousal support, Vardalas is asking that to be "determined in mediation."
