Debra Messing has filed for divorce from her writer-producer husband.

The former Will And Grace star filed her petition in Los Angeles citing irreconcilable differences.

Debra married Daniel Zelman, a writer and executive producer of the show Damages, in September 2000, but the couple separated in February 2010.

They have an eight-year-old son and she is seeking joint custody. Her petition requests that Zelman pay her legal fees and spousal support.

Debra currently appears on the NBC series Smash.

The filing was first reported by celebrity website TMZ.
