Tom Green files for divorce from Drew Barrymore
LOS ANGELES, California (CNN) -- After less than six months of marriage, actor-comedian Tom Green filed for divorce Monday from actress Drew Barrymore, his publicist Ann Gurrola said.
Green filed a Superior Court divorce petition Monday morning, citing irreconcilable differences.
"Drew is a wonderful woman, I love her very much. I wish our marriage could have worked out, I wish her much happiness," the 30-year-old comedian said in a statement released by Gurrola.
Barrymore publicist Jennifer Allen told The Associated Press she was unaware of the divorce filing and she was unable to reach the actress.
Green, 30, and Barrymore, 26, joked for months about whether they were married before tying the knot in July. At one point, they had promised to wed on television's "Saturday Night Live."
In April, Green went on "The Tonight Show" and told Jay Leno that he and Barrymore were expecting a child, but later admitted he was playing a prank that he thought the audience was in on.
The marriage was the first for Green, who starred in the movie "Freddy Got Fingered" this year. It was the second marriage for Barrymore, 26, who most recently starred in "Riding In Cars With Boys."
