Reed ‘files for divorce’
Nikki Reed has reportedly made her split from Paul McDonald official.
The 26-year-old Twilight star announced her separation from former American Idol contestant Paul McDonald at the end of March.
Now TMZ reports the actress has moved to make the split official.
Legal documents obtained by the outlet show Nikki cited irreconcilable differences.
A spokesperson for the actress in a previously released statement forecasted a divorce would be imminent and revealed the former couple had been living apart for months.
"After much consideration, Nikki Reed and Paul McDonald are ending their marriage. They have been living separately for the past six months due to work obligations,” her representative said earlier this year.
The marriage was the first for both Nikki and Paul, who were wed on July 14, 2011, according to the filings.
The split appears to be amicable. TMZ reports the pair have continued working on an album together.
"They will continue to share their love of music, and are still working on their debut album, I'm Not Falling, releasing in 2014. They remain best friends and look forward to their continued journey together,” the actress’ rep. previously stated.
The pair’s work schedules are rumoured to have been a major factor in the decision to call it quits.
Nikki has spoken in the past about how hard they worked to balance their careers and their marriage.
"It's important to communicate and stay on the same page," she told America’s People magazine last October.
"With what we do for a living, it's important we make each other know they come first."
