After more than 13 years of marriage, Jaime King has filed for divorce from husband Kyle Newman

According to court records, the Black Summer actress filed for divorce from Newman on Monday morning in Los Angeles, Calif. The court records also show that she has filed a temporary restraining order against him. 

King and Newman have two sons together, James Knight, 6, and Leo Thomas, 4.

It's unclear yet whether her request has been granted as well as what led to their divorce filing. 

The last time King shared a snippet of her relationship with Newman on social media was from Father's Day 2019, where she shared a couple of family pictures. "How did we get so lucky? Happy Father's Day to the best man and daddy @kyle_newman WE LOVE YOU!!!" she wrote on Instagram. 

As for Newman, he recently shared a family selfie from a trip to Canada back in February of this year.

For Mother's Day earlier this month, King shared a sweet post dedicated to her children.

"I am incredibly blessed to be your mama," she wrote. "Thank you for choosing me my beautiful babies. May I always hold for you and be the safest space that you know with happiness, peace, unconditional loving, support, laughter, abundance, understanding, joy and hearing and seeing you for you forever. Happy Mother's Day to all the mama's out there. #MothersDay."

According to a spokesperson on behalf of Newman to E! News, "Kyle was deeply saddened by Jaime's attempt to obtain court orders based solely on false claims without providing him any opportunity to respond. As a result, he was extremely pleased that the judge nevertheless permitted their children to remain in his care. As Kyle continues to solo parent, as he has done throughout this pandemic, he remains entirely focused on putting the children's stability and welfare first. Kyle wants nothing but the best for his whole family and hopes that Jaime can find the peace and help she needs."

The two first met on the set of Fanboys in 2005. 

King and Newman wed back in 2007.
