Hayden Panettiere's Mom

Pulls Plug On Marriage

1/6/2012 8:58 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

010512_panettiere_family_hayden_getty_EXHayden Panettiere's mother has filed for divorce ... 3 years after her husband pled no contest to battering her.

Lesley Panettiere cited irreconcilable differences in her divorce petition, filed in L.A. County Superior Court. 

The couple made headlines in August, 2008, after Alan was charged for striking Lesley in the face.  He pled no contest to misdemeanor battery and was placed on 24 months probation.

Here's what's interesting ... Lesley lists the date of separation as July 15, 2008, which is a month prior to the incident that led to his battery conviction. 

Lesley is asking for spousal support.

The couple has only one minor child -- a 17-year-old son.  Hayden is 22.  Lesley wants joint custody.

Yeah, "Mom" needs to lay off the plastic surgery....I will never understand how they think they look younger. It's so obvious when someone has had work done, and terrible work at that!!

News or not, divorce isn't fun guys. You could try and have a tiny bit of class and let them alone. We know nothing about why they split other than what we hear on the news and lets face it the news isn't always accurate.

Best just left alone. Let the private stuff happen privately.

Did he tear her nose off in that assault, or did she just do tons of cocaine?
