James Van Der Beek's Marriage Ends
'Dawson's Creek' star James Van Der Beek has separated from his wife, actress Heather McComb, after nearly six years together.
James Van Der Beek is getting a divorce.
The 'Dawson's Creek' star and 'Party of Five' actress Heather McComb separated two months ago after six years together and are now starting legal proceedings to permanently separate.
The 32-year-old actor's spokesperson said: "Heather and James remain good friends."
Friends suspected a divorce was brewing when the couple sold their $2.5 million home in Studio City, California, last month.
They put the mansion - which features 180-degree canyon, mountain and city views, and a luxurious mist cooling system - on the market in March.
The pair tied the knot in Malibu in 2003, six months after the sixth and final season of 'Dawson's Creek' aired.
Van Der Beek's co-stars Michelle Williams and Busy Phillips attended the intimate ceremony.
Since they tied the knot, Van Der Beek - who played Dawson Leery in the iconic teen drama - has guest starred in 'How I Met Your Mother', 'One Tree Hill', 'Ugly Betty' and 'Medium'.
McComb has appeared in 'Prison Break', 'Crossing Jordan' and 'CSI: New York'.
