Former Full House actor John Stamos, 41, has filed for divorce from X-Men actress Rebecca Romijn-Stamos, 31, according to papers filed Thursday in Los Angeles County Superior Court.
The couple announced in April they were separating after five years of marriage, at which time their publicist Lewis Kay said the parting was amicable and no third party was involved.
The two met in 1994 at a Victoria’s Secret fashion show where she was a model; they began dating two months later and married in September 1998. They had no children, but speculation at the time of their April breakup was that he wanted children and she didn’t.
The very next day after the announcement of the split, Romijn-Stamos showed up at the Los Angeles premiere of her movie, The Punisher, at the Cinerama Dome, but maintained a low profile.
“I’m a little surprised,” her costar, John Travolta, told USA Today at the premiere. “But you can’t judge until you know the situation. … I’ve known John for a few years, but I just met (Rebecca) for the first time on this film.”
