Reese and Ryan, Pam and Kid Rock still have a ways to go, but two other couples are now enjoying singlehood in the eyes of the law.

Earlier this week, actress Selma Blair and actor Ahmet Zappa finalized their divorce, as have Christian Slater and his estranged wife Ryan Haddon, report celebrity news sources.

In June, the 34-year-old Blair filed for divorce from actor-writer Zappa after two years and five months of marriage. They have no children together. The couple had a whirlwind romance, and after only three months of dating, became engaged in fall 2003. They wed in January 2004 in a low-key ceremony at actress Carrie Fisher's Beverly Hills mansion with Zappa's sister Moon Unit and brother Dweezil as guests.

Blair has starred in "Cruel Intentions," "Legally Blonde," "The Sweetest Thing," "Hellboy," "A Dirty Shame" and "The Fog." She recently wrapped shooting on Ed Burns' upcoming "Purple Violets," in which she plays a writer and reprised her role as the voice of Liz in Cartoon Network's animated "Hellboy: Sword of Storms."

Zappa, 32, is the son of late musician Frank Zappa. He's guest starred on various sitcoms and released his debut novel "The Monstrous Memoirs of a Mighty McFearless" in July. He's also set to write a treatment for the big-screen version of the Jim Henson Company's "Fraggle Rock."

Slater, 37, was married to Haddon, a 35-year-old TV producer, for five years, wedding on Valentine's Day in 2000 and officially separating on Jan. 5, 2005.

The couple have two children together, Jaden Zach, 7, and Eliana Sophia, 5. Custody details were not released.

"I am grateful that it has been resolved in the way that it has, and I have an extraordinarily amicable relationship," Slater tells People, adding that he was bringing his kids to Toronto for the holidays to visit their great-grandparents.

Slater's film credits include "The Name of the Rose," "Gleaming the Cube," "Heathers," "Young Guns II," "Pump up the Volume," "Robin Hood: Prince of Thieves," "True Romance," "Broken Arrow," "Windtalkers" and the big-screen flop "Alone in the Dark." After a departure on the stage in "One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest" and "The Glass Menagerie," he's once again in theaters in Emilio Estevez's "Bobby."
