The couple called it quits just before their fourth wedding anniversary.

Kathy Griffin's estranged husband has been located and the former couple is moving forward with their divorce proceedings. 

Randy Bick has responded to Griffin's petition for divorce after it was revealed that the comedian hired a private detective to track him down. According to new court documents filed on March 21, Bick is requesting spousal support and attorney's fees to be covered by Griffin per the terms set forth in their pre-nuptial agreement. 

Bick's attorney, Heather Graham, also shared a statement with ET.

"Mr. Bick has been represented by counsel since early January and his attorney has been in contact with Ms. Griffin's attorney about the matter since that time. Therefore, any claims that Ms. Griffin needed to 'hire a private investigator' to find Mr. Bick are disingenuous and are not supported by the facts," the statement reads. "If Ms. Griffin needed to contact Mr. Bick, she should have simply had her lawyer call Mr. Bick's lawyer. Mr. Bick has complied with all statutory requirements and his response has been filed and served."

The response comes two days after Griffin filed paperwork in Los Angeles County Superior Court on Tuesday to inform the court that she had been unable to locate Bick, "despite her efforts to do so." In those court documents, Griffin stated Bick left the former family residence at her request and had not been in contact with her or told her where he is residing or staying.

The court documents stated that Griffin went so far as to retain the services of a private investigator to serve Bick, "but this too has been unsuccessful." Griffin stated she would make further attempts to locate Bick and "take steps to enter his default." A hearing had been set for next week.

The update comes three months after Griffin filed for divorce from Bick, a marketing executive, less than a week before their fourth wedding anniversary. She filed for divorce in December 2023 and cited "irreconcilable differences" as the reason for the dissolution of marriage.

The date of separation was listed as Dec. 22, 2023, and she also requested that the court enforce their prenup.

The pair, who previously dated between 2011 and 2018 before reconnecting in 2019, tied the knot on New Year's Day in 2020, in a ceremony officiated by Lily Tomlin.

Griffin was also previously married to actor Matt Moline from 2001 to 2006.
