Giovanni Ribisi and Agyness Deyn have split as quietly as they got together.

The American actor, 40, filed for divorce in January from the British model, 31, after two-and-a-half years of marriage. He listed “irreconcilable differences” on the divorce papers, obtained by PEOPLE. The documents list the date of separation as Dec. 28, 2014.

The couple wed in June 2012 after a very quiet courtship that was barely publicized.

This was Deyn’s first marriage and Ribisi’s second. They had no children together. The Selma actor has a daughter, Lucia, 17, from his marriage to Mariah O’Brien, which ended in 2001.

Although the couple remained under the radar for the duration of their relationship, Deyn spoke glowingly of Ribisi to InStyle UK last year.

“He’s incredible. He’s my hero,” she gushed.

“I suppose you meet someone and you’re just like, you know,” she added. “Obviously, if someone’s marrying someone, they’re bringing a lot of really good stuff.”
