Ben Harper, the Grammy Award-winning musician filed for divorce from Laura Dern, former “Jurassic Park” actress on Friday.
“Steal My Kisses” singer Harper, 40, reportedly cited “irreconcilable differences” as the cause for the split after five years of their marriage and is asking the judge to deny Laura spousal support, as well as joint legal and physical custody of their two children.
Harper and Dern dated for five years before they got married in 2005. They have two kids named Ellery, 9, and Jaya, 5.
TMZ reports that Harper claims he and Dern separated back in January. But people connected with the couple, who married back in 2005, tell TMZ they have been living and traveling together throughout the year and were even intimate as recently as last week.
Before Dern tied knot with Harper, she was linked with Nicolas Cage, Jeff Goldblum and Billy Bob Thornton. In 2008 she won a Golden Globe award for portraying Florida Secretary of State Katherine Harris HBO film ‘Recount.’
