Ed Asner Divorce : Actor Files for Divorce 8 Years After Separating from Wife Cindy Asner

Ed Asner, 85, files for divorce from wife Cindy after nearly a decade of marriage…eight years after the pair’s separation.

The pair, who first split all the way back in 2007, reportedly reached a financial settlement of sorts in 2009, according to TMZ, but neither of them actually filed for divorce until now.

It’s unclear what led the 85-year-old Mary Tyler Moore Show actor to finally file.

Asner wed Cindy in 1998. Their initial split almost a decade later quickly turned contentious when he tried to cut off his wife’s spousal support, alleging that she wasn’t making an effort to become self-supporting.

But when rumors surrounding their breakup subsided, there was speculation that the two had reconciled.
