Debra Messing Officially Files for Divorce from Husband

debra messing, daniel zelmanDebra Messing is starting a new chapter in her life. The 43-year-old actress has filed paperwork to officially end her marriage to Daniel Zelman, according to People.

The couple announced their separation back in December 2011. And, according to the court documents, which were filed on Tuesday, Messing is seeking joint custody of their 8-year-old son, Roman, and asking for spousal and child support.

But Messing — who married Zelman in September 2000 — certainly doesn’t seem to be giving up when it comes to love. She began dating her Smash co-star Will Chase around the same time her split from Zelman was announced, though the court officially timed their separation back in February 2010. (Oddly enough, Chase’s character in the NBC hit, Michael Swift, was the main cause behind Messing’s rocky relationship with her on-screen husband throughout the first season.)
