Tia Carrere’s seven-year marriage to a British photojournalist is coming to an end.

The Wayne’s World star, 43, who is acting as her own attorney, filed for divorce from Simon Wakelin in Los Angeles Superior Court Thursday, seeking sole physical custody of their daughter, Bianca, 4.

Her divorce papers, which cite irreconcilable differences as the reason for the split, show the couple has a prenuptial agreement.

This is the second marriage to end in divorce for Carrere, who split from producer Elie Samaha in 2000.

A rep for Carrere wasn’t immediately available for comment.
