It was a blue Christmas for Orange Is the New Black star Pablo Schreiber.
The breakout star’s wife, Jessica Schreiber, filed for a legal separation right before Christmas, TMZ reports. Jessica, a yoga instructor, reportedly cited irreconcilable differences.
Pablo and his wife were married in 2007 and have two children together, a 5-year-old son and a 22-month-old daughter. When it comes to who will care for the youngins following the separation, Jessica seems to have taken charge. She is demanding full custody of the couple’s children and requesting that Pablo pay spousal support. Jessica reportedly also wants the judge to reject any bid Paulo might make for spousal support but is open to visitation and may even be willing to share legal custody.
Despite the difficult time, Pablo is maintaining his characteristic sense of humor. In a tweet sent out on December 20, the actor addressed his impending divorce.
“The really f**ked up thing about divorce is that eventually you have to decide who gets to keep the neti-pot,” he wrote.
We’re glad Pablo is managing to keep the jokes flowing in the midst of his divorce drama. If humor doesn’t help, however, the new star has his burgeoning acting career to distract him. Pablo was a hit as George ‘Pornstache’ Mendez on Orange Is the New Black Season 1 and will be back for Season 2. The actor will also star in NBC’s upcoming drama Ironside this winter.
