'True Blood' Star

Marriage Sucks

Files For Divorce

"True Blood" star Rutina Wesley is ending her marriage, but she's taking steps to make sure she's not sucked dry ...  TMZ has learned.

The actress -- who plays Tara on the show -- filed divorce docs to end her 8-year-marriage to actor Jacob Fishel ... citing the go-to reason -- irreconcilable differences.

Rutina is more successful than Fishel and presumably pulls in a lot more bank, but she's asking the judge to reject any claim he might make for spousal support.

Rutina and Jacob met at Juilliard back when they were students ... and tied the knot when they graduated in June, 2005.  They have no kids.

Pepsi Chick, Why would a man be any more embarrassed getting money from a woman he was married to than a woman being embarrassed for the same reason? That wouldn't take anything away from his manhood. Men want equal rights too. Especially when it comes to getting child custody and alimony. Why should having a vagina mean that you have more rights than a man?

What a double standard. Men do not dump women because they aren't as successful as them. Women want equal rights and yet...

With that accent I don't really blame the guy... but all honesty she looks like a delicious piece of chocolate. Once you had a taste though it gets old.

She waited too long... true blood can't have much longer on the air... and I hope he does get spousal support, not because I have anything against her but women go for all the spousal support they can get when the situation is reversed so why shouldn't men? We wouldn't want to be discriminatory.
