Conners star Sara Gilbert and his wife Linda Perry have split after five years of marriage, according to a new report. The 44-year-old actress and producer filed documents for a legal separation from minor children on Friday in Los Angeles.
According to TMZ, Gilbert said in legal documents that the date of separation was August 13 and she asked the court not to grant support for himself or Perry.
The couple tied the knot in March 2014 during a ceremony on the theme of the rock concert. Perry, 54, is a singer and songwriter who is best known for being the lead singer for 4 Non Blondes, which was a huge hit in the 1990s with What’s Up. She is also the founder of two record labels and has written or produced songs for many artists, including Pink, Gwen Stefani, Christina Aguilera, Alicia Keys, Céline Dion, Ariana Grande and Adele.
One year after their marriage, Gilbert gave birth to their son Rhodes Emilio Gilbert Perry. The former co-host of The Talk also has two children from her previous relationship with television producer Ali Adler.
In April, Gilbert announced that she was leaving The Talk to be able to spend more time with his wife and children because her life was unbalanced.
“I decided it was time for me to leave the show at the end of this season,” said Gilbert at the time. “I obviously love it here, and like I said, it was extremely difficult. Last season, I made The Conners and I produced and [also animated] here. I have not been able to spend as much time with my three children as I would like, nor time for myself. “
Now that Gilbert and Perry have separated, some fans believe there have been signs for months that the relationship is coming to an end. And, they think the biggest indicator was Gilbert’s decision to leave The Talk.
A fan wrote on social media that Gilbert must have left a job she likes to try to save the relationship, but couldn’t make it work because it was too late. The fan added that when someone in a relationship is all work, it repels people.
Another fan wrote that the news of the separation was sad, but they saw it happen last year. However, they hoped it was not true.
Last month, Linda Perry spoke about Sara Gilbert, saying that she couldn’t be more proud of his wife because she had created her own thing [The Conners] and that he was finally flourishing and shine.
