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.

erin brock and her law firm are blood sucking lawyers.....the movie was not accurate....they acted like erin was a crusader, but she is really a thief....the law firm kept the majority of the money while the people suffering barely go anything...they even added a huge nonsense bill on top of the original bill to steal more money...hell has a nice place for them....look up the facts

Uh    

Movies are just that. Movies. If one could believe everything seen in a movie, Michael Moore would be the new Messiah, not what he is (a couch potato inhaling large quantities of Tacos on a daily basis). The 333 million was the settlement from PGE , some to be distributed to the plaintiffs based on court arbitration determined by defendentl situations, legal costs, etc.
