It is official. Hollywood actress Olivia Wilde is now separated from husband Tao Ruspoli. The judgment was finally given on Sept. 29. The 27-year old actress has ended her eight-year long marriage to Ruspoli, an Italian prince.
The petition for divorce was made in March, at a Los Angeles Superior Court. Ruspoli is also a flamenco guitarist and documentary film producer.
The couple had a pretty interesting start to their relationship. They eloped in 2003, when Wilde was just a teenager and were married inside a school bus.
The turning point, reportedly, came after the couple spent long periods apart from each other. Wilde has been working in and around Los Angeles for about 10 months now and Ruspoli has been busy doing his own thing. The distance, as much as anything, proved to be too much. Wilde says she took the decision to part ways, once she felt that neither of them was, in any sense of the term, partners with the other, according to reports in Hot Momma Gossip (HMG).
The trauma of the whole thing has been humbling, Wilde told Marie Claire in July, and for the first time, I'm a little bit wobbly.
The formal request for divorce, according to Wilde's petition, was irreconcilable differences. Wilde, who starred in the recently released Tron, did not seek spousal support and, according to reports from People magazine, the couple reached private agreements on division of property.
