Friday, 40-year old musician Ben Harper filed for divorce from his wife and actress, 43-year old Laura Dern. Court documents cited irreconcilable differences as the reason for the filing.
After five years of dating, Harper and Dern were married in December 2005. Sources say the two had been separated for 5 months prior to the filing. Harper will attempt to gain joint custody of their 9-year old son Ellergy and 5-year old daughter Jaya. In addition, documents show that he requests that Dern not receive spousal support.
