EXCLUSIVE

1117-Olivia-D'Abo-Patrick-Leonard-gettyThe wonder years are over for "Wonder Years" star Olivia d'Abo and mega music producer Patrick Leonard ... the couple is calling it quits on their marriage, TMZ has learned.

Patrick -- who produced some of Madonna's biggest hits, i.e. "Like a Prayer," "Cherish," "Who's That Girl," you get the idea -- filed the docs in Los Angeles County Superior Court last week ... citing irreconcilable differences.

The couple married in August 2002. According to the docs, the couple has been on the rocks for over a year ... Patrick listed the date of separation as August 2011. 

Patrick and Olivia (best known as Kevin Arnold's hippie sister Karen in "The Wonder Years") have no minor children together and Patrick is asking the court to deny spousal support.

I'm sorry to hear it. She's actually a pretty good actress. I liked her as Nicole Wallace on Law and Order: Criminal Intent. Best of luck to them both.

I loved her as Goren's nemesis Nicole Walker on Law & Order: Criminal Intent! She made a wicked serial killer.

Olivia is better looking than the husband.. Patrick doesn't care to give Olivia spousal support.. He is a total ass!

She might not need spousal support, but at least he could of offered it; the guy is getting off too easy from the marriage!

You married a hot chick for 10 years you dork! She didn't try to have kids to get child support. She must have cared about you for most of those 10 years. Give her some support for awhile you cheapskate.
She deserves something for looking at YOU for 10 years...

BETTER GRAMMAR    

ATTN TMZ WRITER: 'i.e' does not mean "for example," like you tried to use it. It means "that is." i.e., you used 'i.e.' wrong. You should have used 'e.g.,' which translates roughly to "for example."

Olivia d’Abo, famous for her role as the older sister in the Wonder Years, is now facing divorce proceedings initiated by her husband of ten years, Patrick Leonard. Leonard is famous in his own right, having produced songs for the likes of Madonna. Leonard is requesting that the Court deny spousal support for d’Abo and it is noted that the parties have no minor children. In Virginia, these parties would be eligible to divorce following a six month separation and the execution of a property settlement agreement since they have no minor children in common. Apparently, the couple has been separated since August 2011, so once a separation agreement is reached, the couple could be divorced in a matter of weeks. However, if d’Abo intends to contest spousal support, the matter will likely need to be set before a judge, causing a much longer road to the ultimate divorce.
