Sara Gilbert has filed to legally separate from her wife, mega music producer Linda Perry, after five years of marriage.
The Conners star, 44, filed legal paperwork in Los Angeles superior court two days after Christmas, listing the date of separation as August 13 and citing "irreconcilable differences." Gilbert requested joint legal and physical custody of the couple's 4-year-old son, Rhodes, TMZ reports. The actress, who spearheaded ABC's The Conners reboot last year, requested that no spousal support be awarded to either Perry, 54, or herself.
The breakup news comes seven months after Gilbert announced she was leaving her moderator post on The Talk to focus on her family and other aspects of her career.
Gilbert and Perry tied the knot in March 2014, three years after they began dating. The couple welcomed son Rhodes Emilio Gilbert Perry in February 2015. Gilbert also shares children, Levi Hawk, 15, and Sawyer Jane, 12, with her ex Ali Adler.
The split comes as a surprise to fans, who saw Perry as a doting partner to Gilbert. The 4 Non Blondes alum was front and center on Gilbert's last day on The Talk earlier this year, and she even helped her daughter Sawyer compose a surprise sendoff song for The Conners actress as she said goodbye to the CBS chatfest after nearly 10 years.
