'Dexter' Star

Files for Divorce from

Michael C. Hall

12/16/2010 8:40 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

TMZ has learned ... Jennifer Carpenter just filed her petition for divorce this afternoon from her "Dexter" co-star Michael C. Hall ... but it turns out they've been separated for a long time.

According to the document, the date of separation is listed as August 9, 2010

Carpenter cites "irreconcilable differences" in the petition filed in L.A. County Superior Court.

Carpenter is also asking for spousal support and for attorney's fees.

The couple, who married in 2008, have no children.

Julia Stiles -- who guest starred on "Dexter" this season and is rumored to have gotten "close" to Hall  -- just issued a statement saying they're just "good friends" and she's not the cause of the breakup.

Ding dong the witch is dead. Good for Michael. He gets to live with what he deserves. Anything that isn't her. Woman transplanted into a 16 year old lankey boys body does not make a good wife when your loaded.

I don't have anything against Jennifer Carpenter, but I don't think she deserves spousal support either...after only 2 years? And it's not like she isn't making her own money.

And really, I hear a lot of people putting her down, we really know nothing about her, him, or the marriage, so unless you were the a fly on the wall........

Wow, what a gold digging ****! She expects spousal support after only being married for like 10 seconds. I guess her plan to marry him to further her career back fired. Once Dexter ends she'll fall of the face of the earth. Michael, go find someone who deserves you and preferably someone that isn't so ugly she breaks mirrors by looking at them.

I love both of these actors but working together and being married would be too much for most ppl. I agree with the poster who said she caught him cheating and that's why she's asking for spousal support. Makes sense, and he should have to pay for it, I'd say the same if the roles were reversed. Sucks for them, and me cause I thought they were so cute!
