Kate Beckinsale and her director husband, Len Wiseman, have reportedly split, but on good terms, after more than a 11 years of marriage.

“There has been no drama,” a source told People, which confirmed the long-suspected breakup through a source Friday after Wiseman was spotted hanging out at the Nice Guy in Los Angeles on Tuesday with CJ Franco, 24, sans wedding ring.

It wasn’t the first time those two were out on the town together either, TMZ pointed out early Thursday, noting a couple of sightings in October.

Apparently, Wiseman and Beckinsale have been uncoupled for months now, People’s source said. They got married in May 2004.

“They have both had complicated schedules and have grown apart,” the source told the magazine, adding that the actress, 42, and the "Underworld” and “Underworld: Evolution” director, 42, are still friendly and spend time together when she’s in L.A. Currently, she’s in Prague working on that franchise’s fifth installment.

Franco is a hairstylist and aspiring actress/comedian, reports.

Beckinsale, who’s also been seen without her wedding ring in recent months, isn’t interested in dating right now, another source told People. While she and Wiseman have no children together, she’s been focused on 16-year-old Lily, her daughter with first husband Michael Sheen.


A rep for Beckinsale did not respond to The Times’ requests for comment Friday. “Underworld 5" is due out next October; Wiseman has a writing credit on the film.
