Known from movies such as “The Addams Family” or “The Sigh of the Black Snake”, actress Christina Ricci decided to end her 7-year marriage to director James Heerdege.
It was the actress who filed for divorce, shortly after she asked for and obtained a protection order against her husband.
On June 25, the Los Angeles Police Department reportedly responded to a call from the Woodland Hills neighborhood of Los Angeles, right from the actress’ house for an incident of domestic violence. James Heerdegen was not arrested then, but the police made a report, and Christina Ricci received an emergency protection order against her husband.
The actress mentioned that “irreconcilable differences” would be the main reason for the divorce in the documents filed on Thursday in Los Angeles. Christina is also seeking custody of their 5-year-old son, Freddie. On the same day she filed for divorce, Christina stopped wearing her engagement ring.
The two have not yet commented on their separation. Christina Ricci and James Heerdegen first met on the set of Pan Am in 2012. They got married in 2013, and in August 2014 Christina gave birth to Freddie.
