Soccer star Landon Donovan has filed for divorce from his actress wife Bianca Kajlich on Tuesday, December 21, 2010.
Twenty-eight-year-old Donovan (best known for his performance on Team U.S.A. in the World Cup) wed 33-year-old Kajlich (best known for her role in Rules of Engagement) on New Year’s Eve 2006.
The couple separated in October 2009, but there were rumors of reconciliation after the World Cup this year. Donovan finally made the separation official by filing divorce papers in Los Angeles Tuesday.
“We remain the closest of friends and will always be important parts of each other’s lives,” Donovan and Kajlich said in a statement.
