Melissa Gilbert has filed for divorce from Bruce Boxleitner, making the move to end their 16-year marriage a little more than five months after they announced their separation.
The petition was filed recently in L.A. and gave the date of the actors’ separation as January, the month of their 16th anniversary. The very common “irreconcilable differences” was cited, with Gilbert seeking spousal support and joint custody of their 15-year-old son, Michael Boxleitner.
“We have loved each other for a very long time,” Gilbert said in March, “and we share four incredible sons together.” In addition to their son together, Boxleitner, 61, and Gilbert, 47, in addition to their son Michael, Gilbert has an adult son from a previous marriage, while the Tron actor has two adult sons from his first marriage.
Gilbert is perhaps best known for her work on “Little House on the Prairie.” Boxleitner, seen reprising his 1982 “TRON” roles in December’s “TRON: Legacy,” starred with Kate Jackson on the “Scarecrow and Mrs. King” and was a regular on “Babylon 5.”
In other Gilbert family news, Melissa’s younger sister Sara Gilbert, 36, has split with Allison Adler, 47, her partner of 10 years. “The Talk” host and her ex plan to share custody of their 6-year-old son and 4-year-old daughter.
In other Hollywood divorce news Mel Gibson and his ex-wife Robyn Gibson have reached a private settlement and their divorce is finalized. The details of their divorce and how their assets have been divided have been kept confidential.
Robyn Gibson filed for divorce in April 2009, just months before the Oscar winner’s then-girlfriend Oksana Grigorieva
gave birth to an infant daughter. Mel Gibson indicated in court filings that the couple separated in 2006. The Gibsons have seven children together, but only one who is under the age of 18.
This settlement has had implications for Oksana Grigorieva, she was originally trying to get millions out of Mel Gibson, now it looks like she’ll only receive $750,000.
