In a court document obtained by PEOPLE and first reported by The Blast, the singer filed for divorce on Friday in Georgia. His filing comes nine months after they announced their separation in March.

The pair previously confirmed the breakup in a joint statement obtained by PEOPLE.

“After much thought and consideration, we have mutually decided to separate as a couple. We remain deeply connected, loving friends who will continue supporting each other through the next phases of our lives,” the statement read. “The enormous amount of love and respect that we have for each other will only increase as we move forward.”
