Laura Dern

Divorce Final

No Going Back Now ...

0910-laura-dern-ben-harper-getty
The fat lady has sung in Laura Dern's divorce ... after a failed attempt at reconciliation, the actress' divorce from singer Ben Harper has been finalized.

TMZ broke the story ... Harper blindsided Dern with divorce papers back in 2010 after 5 years of marriage and two children ... but in 2012, before it was finalized, the two tried to get back together.

The reconciliation was a colossal failure ... and months later, Dern decided she wanted out for good, filing her response to Harper’s divorce petition, demanding primary physical custody of their kids.

Now, a year later, it's all over ... a judge has signed the divorce petition, meaning Laura and Ben are officially single.

The terms of the settlement are confidential.   Sources connected with the couple tell TMZ ... the couple will have joint custody, although Laura will have the kids more than Ben.  We're also told she will get "minimal" child support.  We're told neither party will get spousal support.

Another one bites the dust.

another marriage bites the dust....
dont get married if you don't have it in you to fight for it....
point is, make sure you are in love with someone with a good heart (who loves you back), and not in love with the idea of marriage .....

These two have been trying to get away from each other for years. He file for a divorce-he she file. They never seemed happy for long. He was married to a lady name Joanna when Laura busted up that marriage. Love how the media tried to clean that up.
