Joey Lawrence is throwing in the towel on his second marriage ... he just filed for divorce.
The former "Blossom" star filed Friday in Los Angeles County Superior Court to divorce Chandie Lawrence as they approached their 15-year wedding anniversary.
Joey and Chandie met at Disney World way back in 1993, when he was 16 years old and on vacation. Joey says he invited her on an ice cream date at the Mouse House when they first met and joked about getting married at the theme park.
After Joey's first marriage to Michelle Vella ended in divorce in 2005, he quickly wed Chandie in July and their teenage wedding fantasies became reality as they tied the knot at Disney World.
It's not clear what led to the split, but Joey and Chandie will have to settle child custody and/or support issues -- they have 2 minor daughters, 14-year-old Charleston and 10-year-old Liberty.
Despite Disney's best efforts ... no fairytale ending this time.
2:16 PM PT -- It's official -- Aaron Rodgers and Danica Patrick are "no longer together," the driver's rep confirmed with E! News.
Seems the couple has called it quits after two years of dating -- shocking considering they were publicly trading "I love yous" ... and had even shacked up together at a recently purchased $28 MILLION mansion in Malibu.
In fact, it was just back in December when Danica posted a super mushy birthday message for Aaron on IG -- saying, "Happy birthday to my best friend and favorite person in the world. You are the one I want to tell my best and worst days to first."
She also dropped an "L-Bomb."

"This journey we are on.... it’s a really really good one. I love you. Happiest of birthdays yet!!!!!!"
Before that, Jenny McCarthy asked Danica on her SiriusXM show back in November about a possible wedding at some point -- and while DP admitted she WANTED to get engaged, she wasn't trying to rush it.
The Green Bay Packers superstar and ex-NASCAR driver started dating back in 2018 ... after initially meeting at the 2012 ESPYs.
We've reached out to reps from both camps -- but so far, radio silence. Seems no one's ready to talk yet.
Patrick previously dated race car driver Ricky Stenhouse Jr. -- but they broke up in 2017. Danica had said she was ready to get engaged -- but Stenhouse refused to pull the trigger and that was that.
Rodgers previously dated Olivia Munn but they split in 2017.

The so-called "it" couple from Netflix's "Too Hot to Handle" are on the outs ... Francesca Farago and Harry Jowsey have ended their relationship.
Francesca made the announcement Tuesday afternoon with a YouTube confessional she dubbed "Our Break Up." She was pretty emotional during the entire 5-minute video and she said ultimately what it came down to was this -- "He decided to break up with me because he couldn't do long distance anymore."
Francesca said she was obviously heartbroken about the ordeal ... adding she tried to make it work but in the end just couldn't make it work. The announcement comes less than a month after they hit up UCLA for a workout.
Francesca -- a model from Vancouver -- and Harry -- who hails from Australia -- were one of the couples that immediately hit it off on the show. But, their chemistry also cost the group some money since they broke a ton of the rules set from the get-go ... like making out and hooking up. If you're unfamiliar with the show, that's a huge no-no.
If these 2 crazy kids can't make it in this world ... what hope is there, really.
11:28 AM PT -- 6/11 -- Anson just explained why he filed divorce docs for the 2nd time in 10 months, telling TMZ ... "When I canceled the divorce filing in September, we agreed for the sake of the children to remain apart and to lead separate lives. However, even that arrangement didn't work and our status needed to be clarified with a decree of divorce."
Ya can't say Anson Williams and his wife didn't give it the ol' college try, but the "Happy Days" star is filing divorce docs for the 2nd time in less than a year.
Anson, who played Potsie on "Happy Days," filed in L.A. last Friday ... and we're guessing all he really had to do was change the date from the docs he filed last September.
Anson and Jackie Williams have been together more than 30 years now, and have 5 kids together -- but things have clearly been rocky since at least last year when they broke up, but pretty quickly decided to try again.
As we reported, Anson first went down divorce road last year on 9/11. However, by October 1 he was back in court, filing to dismiss that divorce.
Fast forward 9 months and they're back in splitsville. Unclear what led to their parting of ways this time around. Last year, Anson told us "sometimes you have to do what's best for everyone."
We've reached out to his rep. No word back yet.

The wife of the former cop who was arrested for killing George Floyd has filed for divorce.
Derek Chauvin's wife, Kellie, announced Friday night she's ending their marriage after 10 years.
Her rep says, "Her utmost sympathy lies with [Floyd's] family, with his loved ones and with everyone who is grieving this tragedy" ... "While Ms. Chauvin has no children from her current marriage, she respectfully requests that her children, her elder parents, and her extended family be given safety and privacy during this difficult time."
Kellie, who was born in Laos and was crowned Mrs. Minnesota back in 2018, says she's devastated by George Floyd's death.
Derek Chauvin has been charged with 3rd-degree murder in George Floyd's death.
Here's the deal ... fans have noticed Brody and Kaitlynn lookin' pretty chummy recently -- BJ was the muscular hunk in the reflection of one of KC's snaps, and they both posted similar photos from the same beach -- but we've learned there's nothing brewing, other than a new dog in the mix.
Sources close to the famous exes tell TMZ ... Brody and Kaitlynn have hung out and bumped into each other a few times, but it's NOT a sign they're getting back together.
When Brody and Kaitlynn were "married" -- it was never a real marriage, there was a ceremony in Indonesia but they never made it legal -- they shared 3 dogs together ... Radar, Tank and Shoey.
Our sources say Brody and Kaitlynn had an agreement when they split ... he would take the dogs full time, and she had visiting rights.
We're told Kaitlynn adopted a new dog, Dash, a couple months ago and wanted to introduce the pup to the pooches she co-parents with Brody, so the exes set up a meet-and-greet for the dogs.
They all hit it off -- the dogs, not Brody and Kaitlynn -- freaking out and playing like good boys and girls.
Brody and Kaitlynn are getting along too ... we're told they said hello and were friendly when the bumped into each other at the beach in Malibu, in what sources say was not a scheduled hangout.
The exes are both moving on, but we're told there's no bad blood ... Brody was spotted quarantining with a UCSB grad and witnesses say Kaitlynn went on a date this week with Amber Heard's ex, Kristopher Brock.
Bottom line for Brody and Kaitlynn ... they'll continue to be in each other's lives because of their dogs and families, but that doesn't mean they're getting back together.
The actress made an appearance Wednesday on a live stream hosted by home decor guru, Colin Wayne, who's the CEO of Redline Steel ... which recently partnered with Megan to plug their company and this $2 million Memorial Day giveaway she was hired to promote.
Her online gig was quite telling ... for a couple reasons.
For one, Megan wasn't wearing a wedding ring on camera -- mind you, this chat went down very shortly after Machine Gun Kelly released his new music video, which shows Megan and MGK in intimate scenes. Colin even congratulated her on it.
Reality is, Megan hasn't been wearing her ring for at least a week or two, and ditto for Brian. The weirder moment came when Colin asked her to show off some of her own Redline goodies ... so, she picked up a custom family tree with "GREEN" stenciled at the bottom.
MF referred to it as her "family name" -- going on to add that she's got one with her kids' names carved in it too. It was kind of an awkward moment, considering BAG himself all but confirmed they're dunzo just 24 hours earlier.
She probably ordered those trinkets in better times, but, at least publicly, Megan's not disavowing her estranged husband's last name. Not yet, anyway.
We'll just call this a hopeful sign their break-up will be as amicable as Brian's making it seem.
"The Bachelor" star Peter Weber learned the hard way mama knows best -- she was never a fan of Madison Prewett and now Madi's a goner cause the couple is dunzo.
Madi and Peter revealed the split Thursday night ... just 2 days after an incredibly tense and awkward "After the Final Rose" finale where Peter's mom, Barbara, let it be known in not so friendly terms ... she's never gonna get on board with the relationship.
Madi, who initially tagged the wrong Pilot Pete account in her Instagram breakup post, said she and Peter decided to go separate ways but never elaborated.
Didn't seem to bother Madi all that much, at least on the surface, because moments after announcing her breakup she was seen partying -- yes, hanging at Target can constitute as partying -- with none other than Selena Gomez.
As for Peter, he seems to be taking this all in stride too. He said, "Madi and I have mutually decided to not pursue our relationship any further. Believe me this was not easy for either of us to be ok with, but after a lot of honest conversations, we have agreed that this is what makes most sense for the two of us."

BTW ... Peter's mom celebrated the breakup by posting video of her and two friends singing, "Leaving on a Jet Plane." BURN!!!
Amanda Bynes won't be walking down the aisle after all -- she and her fiance of just 3 weeks have called off their engagement.
AB's groom-to-be, Paul Michael, confirmed the news Sunday ... telling In Touch they had, in fact, broken up. He added he still loves Amanda, though, and considers her his best friend.
Word of their split comes after Amanda recently cleared her social media pages of any photos of her and Paul together, which led some to believe they'd parted ways. She hasn't spoken on the split herself yet, and the reason for things coming undone remains unclear.
Of course, as we first told you, Amanda's family wasn't going to let it happen in the first place -- so the writing might've been on the wall for this from the get. Her mother is her conservator, and Amanda can't do something like getting hitched without her conservator's consent. We'd been told her family felt it simply wasn't in her best interest.
We came to learn that the engagement ring Amanda was flashing all over the Internet was actually purchased off of Amazon, for a measly $49. No real diamond, either.
Still, Amanda seemed pretty smitten with Paul -- whom she'd met in AA classes, and had only been dating for a few months before he popped the question. She even filmed a video with him and introduced him to the world as the "best person on the face of the Earth."
We were told by sources close to her family that Amanda had a boyfriend right before Paul, and they felt he was simply a rebound. On to the next, it seems.
Jeff Garlin thinks women should always come out on top in divorces ... and he says he's gonna put his money where his mouth is.
"The Goldbergs" and "Curb Your Enthusiasm" star opens up on his own divorce on Laura Wasser's 'All's Fair' podcast ... telling the Disso Queen he's nearing the end of an amicable split with his estranged wife, Marla.
As we reported ... Jeff filed for divorce back in September 2018 after nearly 25 years of marriage.
Jeff says he's still madly in love with Marla, and even though they don't want to be with each other anymore, he's going to make sure she's taken care of for the rest of her days.
Jeff's reasoning for not nickel-and-diming his ex -- the stress just ain't worth it, and he's got tons of female friends with horror stories about greedy ex-husbands.
Bottom line for Jeff ... women are better than men, and they should always win the divorce, even when the wife is the breadwinner.
Sources close to the former couple tell TMZ ... Josie and Logan called it quits about a week ago, this after she completely stopped talking to him. Guys aren't the only ones who ghost.
It was a pretty short relationship ... as we first told you, Josie and Logan only started dating last month after years of running in the same friend circles.
Logan and Tana raised eyebrows this week by going on a very visible "date" in Los Angeles, but our sources say Jake Paul's ex is NOT the reason Josie stopped talking to Logan.
We're told Josie and Logan broke things off BEFORE photos of him with Tana surfaced, so she's no home-wrecker.
Our sources say Josie is telling friends Logan just wasn't the one for her, and she worries he simply used her for publicity. We're told Josie knows about Logan's photos with Tana and feels they are just hanging out as a publicity stunt and aren't actually into each other.
In the eyes of the law, Jenna is known as Jenna Tatum ... but according to new legal docs obtained by TMZ, she wants to have her legal name restored to Jenna Dewan.
We broke the story ... Jenna and Channing finalized their divorce and became legally single back in November ... but their settlement didn't include anything about a name change for Jenna.
The exes are moving on from each other in more ways than one ... as we reported, Jenna recently moved into a new house with her boyfriend and baby daddy, Steve Kazee, and Channing is back together with his former flame, Jessie J, and the reconciliation is Instagram official.
There's still a few balls in the air as far as the divorce is concerned ... Jenna and Channing are locked in a nasty custody battle and are hashing out a property settlement agreement.
Simpson spells out the whole thing in her new book "Open Book" -- in which she finally breaks her silence on the demise of her 2-year relationship with the former Dallas Cowboys QB. Long story short, Simpson claims she ran into Mayer at her parents house and didn't tell Romo, but he eventually found out through an email from John to Jess.
"[Tony] accused me of seeing John behind his back. I hadn’t cheated on Tony at all, but I could not lie and say I hadn’t even seen him," Simpson said.
Jessica told Tony "nothing happened" ... but Romo didn't buy her story because ... well, John Mayer.
"Tony didn’t believe that for a second. And within that second, he broke up with me right there. Two years, gone with an email."
Simpson says she knew Romo wouldn't blab to the media about the real reason for the split because "it would imply that he wasn't enough for me."
Jessica says eventually "Tony soon realized I was telling the truth. Of course I didn’t cheat on him."
"But our breakup had been so ugly that it shocked me into realizing it had been necessary."
As for Mayer, Jessica claims the musician made a full-court press to put a ring on it.
"[John] had said all these things, practically asking my parents for my hand in marriage while I was in a serious relationship. Swearing to me up and down that he was a changed man."
"Now here I was, ready to pledge my love back, and to kiss him as the curtain came down. And it fell on my head ... All this time, all those years, he was breaking up with me to torture himself enough to get good material."
In other words, Jessica was convinced John just wanted to try to be with her so he could get content for his music.
"It felt inevitable to be in love with John, so I continued talking to him for months. But I knew now not to let him get close enough to shoot me down again."
Everyone ultimately moved on with their lives ... Jessica married ex-NFL tight end Eric Johnson. Romo married beauty queen Candice Crawford.
Fun Fact -- Jessica famously bought Tony Romo a $100,000 boat as a birthday present before they broke up ... but told TMZ at the time she wasn't going to ask for it back!
2:59 PM PT -- Warning to all interested parties: Hold off on your marriage proposals for Miley or Liam! According to their divorce docs, the judge kinda postdated their single status. They won't be OFFICIALLY available until February 22.
So, 2/22/20 is your target date, Cody Simpson. Deuces are wild!
According to new legal docs obtained by TMZ, a judge has already put their John Hancock on the former couple's divorce settlement.
TMZ broke the story ... Miley and Liam worked out all the details of their divorce back in December, and their lawyers -- disso queen Laura Wasser repping Liam and Judith R. Forman repping Miley -- quietly worked through stumbling blocks to submit the paperwork to the judge.
It's a pretty quick divorce ... Miley and Liam have no kids, she's keeping their pets and our sources say there's a prenup, which makes dividing property a helluva lot easier.
Liam's the one who filed to divorce Miley back in August, citing irreconcilable differences ... and now they are both single.

The TV host's final judgment got the judge's stamp of approval Tuesday in New Jersey. The docs include some interesting tidbits about who gets what.
The Livingston, NJ house she and Kevin Hunter put up for sale is eventually gonna be split down the middle -- 50/50. Wendy gets to keep a crib they have in Florida, where her mom lives. Kevin, meanwhile, gets to keep the proceeds from another house he owned and recently sold in Morristown, NJ.
The docs say they each owned equal shares of their production company, and apparently Kevin is going to sell off his part of it to Wendy. She'll be the sole owner, but she's paying him a lump sum, plus a severance package. The amounts are confidential.
10:10 AM PT -- Courtney seems to be in a celebratory mood on the heels of finalizing her divorce -- can ya tell?

The former couple filed new docs, obtained by TMZ, informing the court they reached a settlement on divvying up their stuff. Now, once the judge signs off, they'll be officially single in March.
As for the property split ... Doug's taking their Italian Greyhound -- cleverly named, Dourtney -- and Courtney keeps ALL of their furniture and appliances. He's also driving off with a 2001 Jeep Wrangler and his retirement dough ... plus, his personal website, which is apparently worth $100.
They're splitting up their bank accounts by branch -- she keeps Wells Fargo, and he stays with Chase. Courtney and Doug are also splitting their life insurance policy in half.
