Fox and Green have both cited irreconcilable differences as the reason for the termination of their marriage, however Green is the only one seeking financial support.
In his petition for divorce, Green’s filing mirrored nearly every point made by Fox in her earlier petition, except for the spousal support. Fox could have asked the court to terminate Green's right to seek support in her initial petition but chose not to.
Green, who is best known for his work on the 1990s soap Beverly Hills, 90210, hasn't had consistent work since his role on the sitcom Anger Management in 2014. Fox, on the other hand, has several upcoming films -- including Zeroville and Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles 2 -- as well as a role on New Girl.
The 42-year-old Green and 29-year-old Fox were married for five years and the couple share two sons – 3-year-old Noah and 18-month-old Bodhi. Fox filed for divorce on Aug. 21. Both parties are seeking joint custody of their children.
The dissolution of Fox and Green's marriage came as a surprise to many of their fans, but is one of many shocking splits during this summer of celebrity heartbreak. Check out the video below for a look at some other Hollywood power couples who couldn't keep the spark alive in recent months.
