Reese Witherspoon Officially Files for Divorce as She Announces Reason For Separation

The court documents, obtained by People, revealed that Witherspoon listed “irreconcilable differences” as the reason for their divorce. The documents also shared that the couple already has a pre-nuptial agreement between the two of them.

Additionally, when it comes to their son, Tennessee James, 10, Witherspoon asked for joint custody.

As Mamas Uncut previously reported, just days before what would have been her and Jim Toth’s 12 wedding anniversary, actress Reese Witherspoon has made an emotional and heartbreaking statement.

In a statement shared on her personal Instagram account, Witherspoon revealed that she and Jim have made the decision to end their marriage. Reese and Jim married in 2011 just one year before welcoming their son Tennessee James Toth into the world in 2012.

Jim was also a stepfather to Reese’s two oldest children, Ava and Deacon, whom she shares with her first husband, actor  Ryan Phillippe.

As Reese began in her statement, she wrote, “We have some personal news to share,” seemingly speaking for both herself and Jim. “It is with a great deal of care and consideration that we have made the difficult decision to divorce.” 

“We have enjoyed so many wonderful years together and are moving forward with deep love, kindness, and mutual respect for everything we have created together. Our biggest priority is our son and our entire family as we navigate this next chapter. These matters are never easy and are extremely personal. We truly appreciate everyone’s respect for our family’s privacy at this time.”

The statement was signed with both of their names, “Reese and Jim.” Reese made the decision to disable her comments on the particular post.

Mamas Uncut will update this article as new information regarding their split comes to light.
