Peeples, 53, submitted the paperwork in the Los Angeles County Courthouse on Aug. 11, just 20 days short of the couple’s eighth wedding anniversary.
The papers obtained by PEOPLE cite irreconcilable differences as the reason for the split. Peeples is seeking to keep the couple’s home, a Malibu, California, mobile home with an ocean view that’s valued at $875,000. Also listed among the couple’s community assets is a Las Vegas condo worth $91,000.
Peeples, who rose to fame on the TV series Fame, has been married three times before. She and George have no children, but Peeples has two children from previous marriages.
