Tia Carrere Files for Divorce From Simon Wakelin

Tia Carrere's seven-year marriage to a British photojournalist Simon Wakelin is coming to an end.

The 'Wayne's World' actress filed for divorce from her husband on Friday, according to papers filed in court. The two had been married for seven years, and have a four-year-old daughter, Bianca.

In the papers, which Carrere filed herself, the 43-year-old cites irreconcilable differences as the reason for the split. She is seeking sole physical custody of Bianca and mentions the couple has a prenuptial agreement.

Ironically, Tia Carrere was at Disney when she announced the news on Twitter: "At 'the Happiest Place on Earth' when the saddest, most personal news about my life pours out on the internet... Twisted."

This was Carrere's second marriage. She divorced producer Elie Samaha in 2000, after being married for eight years.
