In court documents obtained by PEOPLE, Spelling cited irreconcilable differences as the reason behind her split from McDermott, 57.

Spelling has requested the court to award her spousal support and terminate McDermott's ability to receive the same support, and their official date of separation listed as June 17, 2023.

The actress also asked for sole physical custody of their five minor children — Liam Aaron McDermott, 17, Stella Doreen, 15, Hattie Margaret, 12, Finn Davey, 11 and Beau Dean, 7 — and joint legal custody with McDermott's visitation rights to be determined at a later date.

The filing did not indicate if the former couple had a prenuptial agreement in place. Spelling also stated that the nature and extent of their respective properties have yet to be determined.

Spelling and McDermott tied the knot in a private ceremony in Fiji on May 7, 2006, after meeting the previous year while filming the TV movie Mind Over Murder.

Back in June 2023, on the same day listed as the date of separation between the estranged pair, McDermott announced that the couple had decided to go their separate ways in a statement that was later deleted from his Instagram.

“It’s with great sadness and a very very heavy heart that after 18 years together and 5 amazing children, that @torispelling and I have decided to go our separate ways, and start a new journey of our own,” he wrote at the time.

In recent months, both Spelling and McDermott have both moved on. McDermott is seeing new girlfriend Lily Calo, while Spelling was spotted kissing Ryan Cramer, the CEO of Santa Monica-based agency Neuron Syndicate Inc., in November.

Despite their new love interests, McDermott told Page Six in March that Spelling is still his “biggest fan” and described her as “caring,” “empathetic” and someone who “wants the best for everybody” sometimes “at the expense of her happiness.”
