Looks like Tom Welling still needs to find the Lois Lane to his Superman. The actor, who played the hunky comic book hero on Smallville, is getting a divorce. TMZreports that Tom’s wife, model Jamie White Welling, filed the paperwork on October 16.
In the papers, Jamie cites “irreconcilable differences.” She’s also asking for spousal support.
The couple got married 10 years ago but have been separated since last December, says TMZ. They have no children together.
Since Smallville wrapped in 2011, Tom’s kept busy with various projects. Remember when he dabbled in executive producing for the short-lived cheerleading drama Hellcats?
At the time, Tom, who was still donning the red cap for Smallville’s tenth and final season, told The New York Times, “I wish I could split into two people I desperately want to be in two places at once.”
More recently, Tom landed a spot in the forthcoming historic drama, Parkland (you know, that film about the JFK assassination that also stars fellow dreamboat Zac Efron.)
So are you surprised by Tom and Jamie’s split or secretly glad Superman’s back on the market? Don’t be shy. Sound off in the comments below.
