Landon Donovan has given his wife a red card.

The soccer star filed for divorce yesterday from actress wife Bianca Kajlich after nearly four years of marriage—one of which they spent separated, according to the petition filed in Los Angeles Superior Court.

"We remain the closest of friends and will always be important parts of each other's lives," they said in a joint statement.

There was talk of a possible reconciliation this summer after the World Cup, but then Donovan became the target of love-child rumors when a British woman claimed the L.A. Galaxy forward had seeded her field while on loan to the English Premiere League's Everton club.

After finding out for sure, Donovan told E! News, "I know now that I will not be a dad anytime soon, which is good for me."

Speaking of which, he and Kajlich have no children together. Donovan cited irreconcilable differences as the reason for the split and is asking for spousal support from the Rules of Engagement star.

Guess someone isn't making David Beckham money out on the field.
