There are some things even Superman can’t fix.
Smallville star Tom Welling, 36, is getting a divorce.
The actor’s wife, Jamie White Welling, filed documents in Los Angeles on Wednesday to end their 10-year marriage, PEOPLE has confirmed.
White Welling, a model, cites irreconcilable differences as the reason for their split and is asking for spousal support. The documents state that the couple, who don’t have any children, separated in December 2012.
The pair reportedly met in a Miami coffee shop in 1998, and they wed four years later in Martha’s Vineyard. They lived in Vancouver, where Smallville was filmed, for most of their marriage, returning to Los Angeles in 2011 after the show ended.
