Following 18 years of marriage, Tori Spelling divorces Dean McDermott.

On Friday, Tori Spelling submitted a petition for divorce from her husband, Dean McDermott, who was a former co-star on reality television.

In Los Angeles Superior Court, the actor who had previously been on "Beverly Hills, 90210" filed a petition to terminate the marriage that had lasted for nearly 18 years. She noted disparities that could not be reconciled.

According to the petition submitted by Spelling, the two have been living apart since June 17th.

The ages of their three kids and two daughters range from seven to seventeen years old, and she is requesting sole physical custody as well as joint legal custody of your children. Legal custody is the parent who has the authority to make the most important choices in the children's lives, while physical custody is the parent with whom the children primarily dwell.

Spelling has submitted a petition to the court requesting that McDermott be ordered to pay her spousal maintenance as well as the fees involved in her divorce. There was no monetary sum provided.

One of the reality shows that aired on the Oxygen network from 2007 to 2012 was called "Tori & Dean: Home Sweet Hollywood." The show was initially called "Tori & Dean: Inn Love," but subsequently changed its name to "Tori & Dean: Home Sweet Hollywood."

Spelling, who is now fifty years old and is the daughter of the late television magnate Aaron Spelling, starred in the original version of "Beverly Hills, 90210" from the years 1990 to 2000 opposite Luke Perry, Shannen Doherty, and Jennie Garth from 1990 to 2000. Both "Scary Movie 2" and "The House of Yes" featured her as a character in their respective flicks.

McDermott, a Canadian actor who is 57 years old, has been a guest on the television series "Due South" in Canada and has also hosted the cooking competition show "Chopped Canada."
