Ann Lopez, wife of comedian and ‘Lopez Tonight’ host George Lopez, officially filed for divorce Tuesday in Los Angeles, making good on the couple’s Sept. 27 announcement of a mutual decision to split up.

The filing, first reported by TMZ, indicates she is seeking spousal support, as well as primary physical custody of their 14-year-old daughter Mayan. The Lopezes married in 1993.


No indication of whether there will be a custody battle over the kidney that Ann donated to George back in 2005.
