Joining the latest pile of dead marriages in the Hollywood graveyard are Michael C. Hall and Jennifer Carpenter‘s brief stint together. The two actors play brother and sister on one of our favorite shows, Dexter. They got married in December 2008, but they didn’t really make this two year anniversary: their statement to Entertainment Weekly reveals that they’ve been separated for a while now. The soon-to-be ex-couple’s joint brief reads, “Having been separated for some time, Jennifer Carpenter and Michael C. Hall have filed for divorce.”
This divorce seems especially sad to report because of the rough 2010 the actor has already had. Michael was diagnosed with Hodgkin’s lymphoma earlier this year. Fighting cancer and getting divorced all in one shot? That’s just harsh. Their reps say the split is amicable, and for once, we’re hoping that’s not a load of crock. He’s in remission now and deserves a break.
