"Diff'rent Strokes" star Todd Bridges and his wife are no longer moving to the beat of just one drum -- and they're ending their 14-year marriage.

Todd announced the split on Twitter, saying he wanted to "beat the media to this." He explained ... "Me and my wife our [sic] divorcing our lives are going different directions."

It's unclear if they've actually filed divorce or separation papers yet.

Todd says they "remain good friends." They have one son together.

That's sad. He has overcome a lot. You would think they could make this work, but you never know.

She put up with his drunk, drug addicted ass for 14 years. I hope she gets the gold mine and he gets the shaft.

I think that is his second wife. I think he lost the first one when he was going crazy being a drug dealer and all that. He wrote a very gripping autobiography of all that he did. He got about as far from being Willis as you can imagine.

I believe he is a Christian now. Mabye he can't be in a relationship after divorcing his first wife then. It turns out his birthday is tomorrow also.

I really enjoy watching him on World's Dumbest...he is a riot, and a good actor. Hate to hear this news, and wish them both the best.

He should have stayed quiet--the media would not have noticed. I think his fame ship has sailed.

Bridges was wise to contain any media speculation about his possible relapse from addiction recovery... it marks maturity on his part, or at least his fortunate procurement of good counsel.
