Big Bang Theory's Mayim Bialik to divorce

Los Angeles - Mayim Bialik is splitting from her husband of nine years.

The 36-year-old The Big Bang Theory actress said in a statement posted online on Wednesday that she and husband Michael Stone have decided to divorce.

The couple has two young sons.

Bialik recently released a book about attachment parenting, but says the philosophy that encourages forming close bonds with near-constant physical contact played no role in the couple's split.

The Emmy-nominated star said "relationships are complicated no matter what style of parenting you choose."

She said divorce is "terribly sad, painful and incomprehensible" for children and adds that the couple's sons remain their priority.

She holds a doctoral degree in neuroscience from UCLA, specialising in obsessive-compulsive disorder in adolescents.
