Diane Lane Is Officially Divorced

By: Lindsay McCane - December 3, 2013

After eight long years of marriage, Diane Lane and Josh Brolin are officially divorced. Lane filed for divorce in February and cited the reason as “irreconcilable differences”. Court records that were filed on November 27 made the divorce final, so it looks like the couple will be ringing in the New Year single!

“Diane Lane and Josh Brolin have decided to end their marriage,” their rep confirmed in February.

The Man of Steel star has also decided to change her last name back to her maiden name. Since her marriage in 2004, Lane had been going by Diane Lane Brolin, however she has changed it to just Diane Lane, dropping her now ex-husband’s name. Brolin’s father, James Brolin, and another source say that the decision to end their marriage was mutual. “He’s great,” James said. “You know, everything is mutual. It’s all okay.” “It was a mutual decision, the source said. “It is very amicable. It’s not ugly, it’s just over.”

It seems as though their relationship has been rocky from the start. Just four months after they were married, Brolin was arrested for spousal battery. Lane claimed that Brolin hit her, but never pressed charges against him. In November, Brolin checked into a rehab facility, for substance abuse after a series of public altercations, where he is currently residing.
