Mena Suvari files for divorce after 18 months of marriage
London: Mena Suvari has split from her husband Simone Sestito after just 18 months of marriage.
According to a website, the 32-year-old actress filed for divorce in a Los Angeles court.
Suvari blames the split on “irreconcilable differences,” and asks that Sestito receive no spousal support, court papers revealed. Suvari, who shot to fame in 1999 Oscar-winning film ‘American Beauty’ will also change her legal name from Mena Suvari-Sestito back to Mena Suvari.
She lists the date of their separation as November 2011, a mere 18 months after they tied the knot in a lavish wedding in Vatican City in June 2010, wearing a custom-designed Alice + Olivia gown.
Suvari and Sestito, a concert promoter married at Santo Stefano degli Abissini, an eight century church, and held their reception at Castello Odescalchi, a 15th-century castle in nearby Bracciano, where Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes also married, a leading daily reported.
She was previously married to cinematographer Robert Brinkman. They divorced back in 2005 after five years of marriage.
