Erin Brockovich

Husband Files for Divorce

Erin Brockovich
's husband has filed for divorce, TMZ has learned.

Eric Ellis just filed the docs in L.A. County Superior Court, citing "irreconcilable differences." The couple was married in 1999. They have no minor children. A date of separation is not listed.

Eric wants spousal support, and doesn't want to pay Erin a penny. He's her third husband.

In case you don't know -- even though you should -- Erin was the subject of a 2000 biographical film named after her, starring Julia Roberts.

Erin was instrumental in constructing a case against Pacific Gas & Electric energy company in California in 1993 -- which allegedly tried to hide evidence of mass chemical contamination in a neighboring town. The case resulted in a $333 million settlement.

Julia Roberts won the Academy Award for Best Actress for her portrayal of Erin in the film.

Interesting that TMZ noted that there was a $333 million settlement....do you know where the MAJORITY of that money went??? I do and the answer isn't the actual people that suffered from PGE's chemical contamination. This case is the exact reason why class actions shouldn't be allowed...the lawyers become mega-rich off the pain and suffering of everyday average citizens!!!!

What schister she is. There was no scientific support backing the claim that Pacific G&E polluted the drinking water in Hinkley. They blamed on chemical, Crhomium 6 on vast list of illnesses, none of which was outside the normal population statistics. People miscarry, get cancer etc and it makes for for great emotional testimony, but the cold hard facts are that she made $$ off of emotions, nor facts.
