Ben Harper Files for Divorce from Laura Dern

Ben Harper has filed for divorce from wife Laura Dern.

The 40-year-old two-time Grammy winner cited irreconcilable differences in his divorce papers and is asking the court not to grant Laura spousal support, according to TMZ.

Ben says the two have been separated since January, but sources close to the couple tell TMZ that Laura has been living and traveling with Ben throughout the year.

The couple married in 2005 and has two children together – Ellery, 9, and Jaya, 5.

    A harlot’s comeuppance! My aunt’s maid used comeuppance and I love it.

    I know zip about Dern, but do remember what I read and I remember it well.

    Her present husband was married and his wife pregnant when she started “dating” him. His wife’s baby was born witinh weeks of their first child.

    I remember this becaus Dern and her long term fiance at the time was Thornton and Jolie walked away with him. Dern found out in the newspapers and everyone felt sorry for her.

    Alas, “everyone” didn’t know, Thornton has been married with a baby, when Dern began dating him too.

    Ah, HollyWeird!

    She broke up Billy Bob’s marriage to his wife Petra. Broke up Ben’s marriage to his wife Joanne. Since women love to throw stone at other women, I’m saying the homewrecker deserves it. Team Ben (even though I do think he is a pos). I wonder who gets the Arquettes.

    @Michele Are you serious? Team Ben? They’re both idiots. She didn’t use witchcraft to seduce him- he’s a cheater! Billy Bob is a cheater as well! Why don’t you hold husbands accountable?

    I hope everyone / haters who were hating on our Angie now get to know the real Laura Dern aka X friend. She is one home wrecker. In hollywood they tend to keep secrets and hate on others. This lady was and still is homewrecker number one and she is just as fugly as X. Friends of the same feather flock together.

    Karma is good, Karma is really good to us JP fans this week. First Toni filled for bankrupcy then this . I am having the most wonderful weekend cause all you haters are going deserve what’s coming your way. KARMA IS A B*TCH AND US JP FANS LOVE IT.

    I feel for their kids.. not her.

    Hmm well maybe the Hag Army will group around her. They are already trying to plant stories that she was blindsided..

    Well let’s wait and see.. Ben is moving fast for some reason.. I wonder if she told his wife she was sleeping with her husband.. I mean she loved making statements about things to the press.

    YEAH she lied and now she knows what it feels like. She has been with 2 married men.. yet she got to play the victim when BBT broke up with her, and she was well aware of it…

    I hope he only has to pay child support and take care of his kids.. She can get a job.

    lol@theloons Says:

    You JP loonxs are so pathetic its not even funny. So Laura Dern is a homewrecker(which she is one) but St Angelina is not? Laura Dern is no worse than Angelina they are just as bad as eachother-Both homewreckers- and yes karma is a *****- what goes around comes around-one down one more to go-AJ will be next

    This woman ruined angie’s reputation by making up all this bs about her.
    Burn b****.

    Manners Please Says:

    It is bad for the children but Laura Dern has broken up the marriages of two women so I don’t feel any sympathy for her. I’m sure her next husband-to-be will already be wearing a wedding ring when she grabs him.

    Ssshhii_baby Says:

    Thankyou for answering my question..Im sad that are children involved but you reap what you sow..sorry Laura you got what you deserve …you outright lie and ruin someone else’s reputation ..karma karma karm!!

    Marieme Says:

    For real #1? And that he was cheating with another (& probably others) during his marriage? Ouch and yuck. I always wondered what he saw in Dern and figured it just must be a deep love. Clearly, how wrong that is. Very sad for the kids.

    Angie is getting her Karma now. Her man & her 6 kids are with her in Budapest. Didn’t you see new pictures of the family. Go to JJB. The new photos shown them being happy together and have the same facial expression.

    I hope Jared doesn’t get a subpoena from Dern’s lawyer demanding your IP.

    Sometimes it’s better to hold back on some info we may have. No matter how tempting it is to share. I’m just saying.

    @sasha: You severely need to get a life and stop living vicariously through these idiots. “JP” wouldn’t piss on you if you were on fire, babe.

    Jill Says:

    She cracked me the hell up, whining that Jolie had stolen Thornton away from her while she was “engaged” to him. The “engagement” was in her mind only. Thornton had already dumped him and she was pursuing him trying to get him back. I always thought his quick marriage to Jolie was to send Dern a message that it was over between him and Dern and to stop pestering him.
