Landon Donovan -- World Cup Star Files For Divorce

12/22/2010 8:34 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Landon Donovan -- U.S. soccer superstar and World Cup hero -- has filed for divorce from his wife Bianca Kajlich ... and get this .... he filed without a lawyer!

Landon Donovan Divorce

In documents filed in L.A. County Superior Court -- and obtained by TMZ -- Donovan cited irreconcilable differences. According to the docs, the two had separated back in 2009.

Here's the shocking part -- according to the docs, Donovan is seeking spousal support from Bianca ... and he also wants her to pay for his attorney's fees.

FYI -- Bianca is an actress on the show, "Rules of Engagement."

The couple married back in 2006 -- they have no kids together.

Landon famously blew a kiss to Bianca after he scored the heroic game winning goal in the 2010 World Cup match against Algeria.

UPDATE:  We just got a joint statement from Landon and Bianca:  "We remain the closest of friends and will always be important parts of each other's lives."

As a woman, I feel that spousal support is ridiculous whether its a man asking his wife for money or vice versa.

Women are sooo twofaced. He should "man up" and not ask for spousal support while women have it practically in their genes. Lets suck everything out of the ex that we can. But if a guy asks he is a ***** and everything bad. B*tches. (tho IMHO I think if two people divorce neither should be entitled to anything not his/hers. 50/50 is moronic. Unless they really contributed, which lets be honest, is the case in like maybe 10% of cases).
And it is kind of sad and pathetic they are getting divorced after 4 freakin years. What is up with people today, freakin immature kids despite being in their late 30s. Ridiculous.

Its her own fault for marrying a soccer player.
I'm sorry futball player.
He did what every sport is now nearly adapting as standard play.
Used to be if you got your hip dislocated, you'd go and get a shot of cortisone and walk it off like someone who gets paid to play. Nowadays, even actual football players will ask for their mommies to kiss their boo-boos because they got a skinned knee.
Its called a flop, and its becoming far to consistent.
So far as spousal support goes,... really?

Landon's salary is over 3 million a year just for the LA Galaxy. That's not including endorsements. He needs to man up and not ask for spousal support. lol He's had a girlfriend all along. Can't wait for that to come out. He's been a little biotch for years. And now this proves he is still a pansy.

In a related story, David Spade has been all up in her for a while now. That fairy-looking twink somehow manages to be the backdoor man for all kinds of A-list trim.
Then he dumps them. Dave, you're the man.

Maybe they don't have a prenup, and since he figures she'll get half of his stuff, he should get some of it back. Considering she's Z-list and sponged off of him for YEARS. I see no problem with this at all.

We remain close friends....

why do celebrities continue to use this phrase? If they were such close friends they would not be getting divorced. I would like it so much better if the mutual statement was this...

"We have decided to end our marriage because we hate each other so f*cking much and we wish each other nothing but a slow, painful death".

I thought this guy was the one who had someone accuse him of fathering her baby?? It turned out to be untrue but it kinda made it sound like he's been running around for a while (which I suppose would make sense if they separated in 2009...nobody seems able to just divorce and then start dating anymore). And for the record, I don't have a problem with men seeking spousal support if the woman is the major breadwinner. For some reason, though, I don't see this lady making millions a year. I happen to watch Rules of Engagement, but is it really that popular? Would she really be raking in THAT much more money than him? It's not like she is a big name actress (or the one carrying the show)...

I don't think even David Spade (the lead of the show, and the established star) makes $3mil/year, so there's NO WAY she's making more than that. I think this is just a dig at her.
