Los Angeles: Comedienne Rosie O'Donnell has filed for divorce from her estranged wife Michelle Rounds after three years of marriage.

O'Donnell filed for divorce yesterday in Manhattan State Supreme Court on the grounds of "an irretrievably broken relationship", reported People magazine.

Three weeks earlier, O'Donnell, 52, revealed she was separating from Rounds and leaving 'The View' to focus on her health and her children.

O'Donnell and Rounds, 42, wed quietly in June of 2012 at their home in Nyack, New York. Since separating in November, they have shared custody of Dakota, the two-year-old daughter they adopted together.

O'Donnell has four older children with her ex-partner Kelli Carpenter.

According to the divorce papers, O'Donnell and Rounds have a prenuptial agreement.
