Reese's

Estranged Hubby Wants ...

5/18/2007 1:50 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Ryan Phillippe has fired his shot off the bow in his divorce with Reese Witherspoon.

TMZ has obtained court documents, filed this week in Los Angeles County Superior Court. Phillippe wants to make a clean break from the marriage. He is not asking for spousal or child support. All he wants is joint custody of the two kids.

Witherspoon filed divorce papers last November, citing irreconcilable difference. She asked for joint custody, and also asked the judge to block any attempt on Phillippe's part to get spousal support. Reese also wanted "exclusive use of the family residence."

TMZ first reported that the former couple did not sign a pre-nup, which means their assets acquired during the marriage will be divided even-steven.

Lana,

Are you unable to read or just think? He gets half of everything they made while married. So what is your point? She should have to continue paying him after the split. Get real.

I think that if the roles were reversed she would get half so why not him!
He treated her good and took care of the kids which alot of men don't do
so he should be able to live comfortable. And he should not have to ask for spousal support she should offer it.

Sad...they were a cute couple.

At least they aren't being nasty about it though. It's nice to see that two people in Hollywood can part ways without it turning into a total circus!

Standards are badly needed.    

Reese was more mature. When Ryan catches up I'm afraid he'll finally appreciate her.
Married very young. She's have hung in forever had he remained faithful, & that's rare.

He is crazy!!! Ryan was the one who always stayed with his daughter, so Reese dould be off making millions and advancing her career. The when the little boy came he did the same.

I think he should be awarded half of everything plus spousal support. His life was on hold, and reese was able to do her thing.

Just because he was a stay at home dad, shouldnt mean he gets treated different. Ryan, get what you deserve. Reese, has established herself, thanks to you. She will continue to make millions, while you will have to start over.

It seems they are putting their kids' best interests first. What a rarity that is! Hopefully, they'll continue to take the high road & not bash each other, publicly or privately.
