Casper Van Dien is divorcing his wife, Catherine Oxenberg, after 16 years of marriage.
The two actors headed to splitsville after a respectable length of time together because of the typically stated “irreconcilable differences” on the divorce paperwork.
Casper Van Dien made the move to begin the process of divorcing his wife by filing paperwork in Los Angeles earlier in the week, according to TMZ.
Oxenberg and Van Dien share two teenage daughters together, 14-year-old Amanda and 11-year-old Celeste, and their father is asking for joint custody of the children.
Van Dien already has custody of two children from a previous relationship. Oxenberg also has another child, whose father she never identified.
Van Dien, a Starship Troopers star, does not want to pay spousal support to his soon-to-be ex-wife after the divorcing process is complete. He is also not asking for spousal support from Oxenberg.
Oxenberg starred in Dynasty in the 1980s. She is somewhat of a royal because her mother is Princess Elizabeth of the former country of Yugoslavia, and she is Prince Charles’ second cousin (once removed), according to People.
The actress is 1375th in the line of succession to the throne of the United Kingdom.
