Stacey Dash and Jeffrey Marty are officially going their separate ways.
Court records obtained by ET confirm that the actress filed for divorce from her husband of two years on Monday, June 15, in Pasco County, Florida.
"As I am transitioning into becoming a new and better woman, I am feeling reborn," Dash says, in a statement given to ET via a rep. "I am choosing to only focus on positive things that are important to me. Family, career, and God’s love."
Additionally, Dash's publicist, Claudia Greene, tells ET, "It is a very difficult time for Stacey and right now she’s still keeping close to God and her kids."
Dash announced back in March that she and Marty were calling it quits. At the time, a rep for the former Clueless star exclusively told ET, "It is a mutual and amicable split. It was a hard decision that both of them decided to make."
Dash and Marty tied the knot in April 2018, 10 days after meeting for the first time, and have had their fair share of ups and downs over the years.
"My husband and I have made the hard decision of ending our marriage," Dash wrote on Instagram, in a post announcing the split. "After much prayer, I feel this is the right path for both of us. I wish him nothing but the best. Thank you everyone for your support and respecting our privacy during this difficult time."
News of their split came seven months after Dash was taken into custody on Sept. 29, after an alleged incident involving her husband. According to a cash appearance bond document obtained by ET, Marty paid $500 to bail Dash out of jail.
According to the Pasco County, Florida, complaint affidavit obtained by ET at the time, Dash and Marty allegedly "became involved in a verbal argument. The defendant pushed the victim and slapped him in the face. The victim sustained red scratch marks to his left upper arm from being pushed. The defendant was taken into custody for domestic battery."
Dash's manager told ET in a statement that the couple "had a marital dispute in their Tampa, Florida, suburb."
"Today, the State Attorney made the right call by declining to file charges against my wife, @staceydash," Marty wrote in a statement shared to Twitter in October 2019. "She was arrested over my objection at the time, but due to the pending investigation, I waited to comment until now."
"We both look forward to getting this behind us," Marty concluded.
Dash has been married four times. Her ex-husbands include producer Brian Lovell, British executive James Maby and actor Emmanuel Xuereb.
