Melanie Lynskey, star of Two And A Half Men, has announced her divorce from her Always Sunny In Philadelphia acting husband Jimmi Simpson, according to a report by TMZ. The news was reported last week by the gossip website, with the couple apparently citing irreconcilable differences behind the split. The papers were filed on September 25, 2012, bringing to a formal end to a marriage that began in 2007. The pair had been separated since April of this year, so the news comes as no great shock, but does seem a shame given the apparently amicable parting of the two. Both have apparently waived their right to receive spousal support.
A quick look at Lynskey's Twitter shows that she's been quiet on the subject of the divorce, instead focusing her attentions on the Canadian music group who she saw play over the weekend. " music lovers" she wrote. "If you're not going to see @teganandsara tonight at Staples Centre you're missing out! They sounded AMAZING last night." There was no mention on her Twitter about the divorce on the day that the papers were filed either, on September 25th.
The divorce puts a sour note on an otherwise good year for Lynskey, with the star appearing in three movies this year including the recently released The Perks Of Being A Wallflower.
