Jim Belushi Asks for Wife's Divorce Filing to Be Dismissed Days Before 21st Wedding Anniversary

Jim Belushi and Jennifer Sloan will mark 21 years of marriage on May 2

More than a year after Jim Belushi‘s wife Jennifer Sloan filed for divorce, the actor has requested that it be dismissed.

On Tuesday, Belushi, 64, asked that the court dismiss Sloan’s filing, according to court documents obtained by The Blast.

The dismissal comes days before the couple will celebrate their 21st wedding anniversary.

His rep did not return PEOPLEs’s request for comment.

Sloan filed for divorce in Los Angeles Superior Court on March 5, 2018 — the 36-year anniversary of Belushi’s older brother John Belushi’s death — according to court documents obtained by The Blast. (The Saturday Night Live comic died from a drug overdose on March 5, 1982.)

Belushi — who starred on the hit ABC series According to Jim from 2001-2009 — tied the knot with Sloan on May 2, 1998. The couple met in 1993, though they didn’t hit it off immediately.

“He kissed me on the forehead like I was his sister,” Sloan told PEOPLE in 2003. “A couple weeks later he asked me to go rollerblading, and I liked him that day. He was real.”

Their last public appearance together was on Nov. 14, 2017, when they attended a Wonder Woman screening at the Museum of Modern Art in New York City.

They share two children together. Belushi also has a son from his first marriage to Sandra Davenport from 1980-88. He was married to his second wife, Marjorie Bransfield, from 1990-92.
