Rose McGowan splits from husband

2016-02-05 10:14

Los Angeles - Rose McGowan has split from her husband.

The former Charmed star has filed for divorce from artist David Leavitt - who she married in October 2013 after less than two years of dating - citing "irreconcilable differences", TMZ reports.

The couple have no children and the 42-year-old actress - who is worth an estimated $18m - has asked the judge to reject any claim for spousal support.

It is unclear whether the pair had a pre-nuptial agreement, but the court documents state there will be a "stipulated judgment" which is believed to mean they have already reached a settlement.

Rose - who previously dated rocker Marilyn Manson and director Robert Rodriguez - hasn't spoken out about the split, but she recently slammed the "boring" industry and claimed she stepped away from life in front of the camera because there are not enough "intelligent and daring" films.

In an Instagram post, she wrote: "Thoughts on the current state of tent pole films aka superheroes. I'd like to petition for other stories to be added to the slate. Where are the human stories? I don't want green goblins and tight outfits. I want intelligence, daring, work that drives society forward. I want a mirror, not every cliché regurgitated ad nauseum. From Scarface, to Lebowski, to M, to Anchor Man, to the sublime Carol, to Chinatown,to Sullivan's Travels-. Let's bring complexity back. Let's be the badasses we used to be.

"Open up the director's chair and it'll change. #hollywood #directing think of all the stories not on screen because women are blocked by the status quo. Fuck the status quo. Honestly, it got so boring in front of the camera I had to quit. Boring often times egomaniacal tyrants not making art. Hmmm.. Why ever should that change? Add women. Change the conversation. Promote depth. (sic)"
