Soccer star Landon Donovan, Bianca Kajlich are getting divorced after all




Since Mrs. Juice* is a devout U.S. soccer fan, she's got to have mixed feelings about the news the team's poster boy, Landon Donovan is divorcing his wife, Rules of Engagement actress Bianca Kajlich, only days before Christmas and their fourth anniversary. Too bad for such a cute couple, she'll think, but hey, Landon's on the market!

Donovan, 28, filed for divorce in L.A. on Tuesday, just 10 days before they would have celebrated four years together, Us reports. "We remain the closest of friends and will always be important parts of each other's lives," the couple said in a joint statement. Maybe freedom was the gift they gave each other.

Darn, we really thought it would work out after he blew her a kiss following his game-winner against Algeria during the World Cup. That separation after an allegation he fathered a British woman's child (though false) was probably not the best sign. Papers cited irreconcilable differences, and Landon is seeking spousal support and attorney's fees from his 33-year-old wife. Hey, making $900,000 a year with the LA. Galaxy doesn't go as far as it used to.
