Melissa Gilbert files to divorce Bruce Boxleitner




In today's Hollywood split-up updates, Melissa Gilbert has officially filed for divorce from her husband of 16 years, Bruce Boxleitner. To add insult to injury, she isn't even bothering to seek spousal support, either.

In papers filed last Monday in Los Angeles, Gilbert sought joint custody of their 15-year-old son, Dakota, the AP reports. She cited irreconcilable differences as the reason, but we all know it's because he can only get work on Tron movies anymore.

Well, that's a little harsh, seeing as how she will forever be known as Laura Ingalls from Little House on the Prairie. Maybe he was keeping her back from serving a third term as president of the Screen Actor's Guild.
