He filed for divorce Monday, seeking to end their four-year marriage, E! News has confirmed. The two have no children.

"It is with deep regret that I share that Michelle and my marriage is coming to an end," Pell said in a statement to E! News Wednesday. "This is a sad and difficult turn of events for our family. I love Michelle, and wish her the very best as her life takes her in a new direction. I want to thank friends and family who have given wisdom and support, and I ask for privacy during this challenging time."
