Shannon Elizabeth Files for Divorce
After separating in March, the American Pie star finalizes her split from Joseph Reitman
American Pie and Scary Movie actress Shannon Elizabeth has filed for divorce from actor Joseph Reitman after 10 years together – three as husband and wife – according to court papers, the Associated Press reports.
When the couple separated this past March, their publicist released a statement to PEOPLE saying that the decision was mutual. “The couple will remain friends,” the rep added.
In her divorce filing on Wednesday, Elizabeth, 31, cited irreconcilable differences. She and the 37-year-old Reitman, (whose movie credits include Drop Dead Sexy, and Choices) have no children, but they did have several pets and co-founded Animal Avengers, a nonprofit animal rescue organization.
The two married on June 15, 2002, on the beach in Jalisco, Mexico – and were making still making public appearances together in late February of this year, during Oscar weekend.
