Sara Gilbert and Linda Perry are separating after over five years of marriage.
E! News can confirm Sara Gilbert has filed for legal separation involving minor children from wife Linda Perry at a Los Angeles courthouse on Friday, Dec. 27, 2019. According to documents obtained by E! News, Sara cited "irreconcilable differences" as the reason for their separation. She also requests that neither she nor Linda receive spousal support.
This filing comes months before the stars would've celebrated their sixth wedding anniversary. They tied the knot in an elaborate ceremony in March 2014, which was attended by Sara's former The Talk co-star Aisha Tyler. After the ceremony, Tyler described it "the most beautiful ceremony at sunset overlooking the ocean."
In total, the celebrity pair was together for nearly nine years. The Roseanne star and the 4 Non Blondes singer first started dating in 2011 after they "instantly connected."
Moreover, the star shared that she wanted more privacy, which isn't exactly easy to have when you're on an intimate talk show. "There is some relief in thinking like, well, if I go through anything in my personal life, now I don't have to talk about it," she said. "I think I put myself on the show to try to push the boundaries like that and grow spiritually and psychologically, but I'm OK with letting that piece of it go."
