Valerie Bertinelli is reportedly getting a divorce from her husband, Tom Vitale. TMZ reported the news on November 24 and stated that Bertinelli filed for mentioning irreconcilable differences as the reason.
The split won’t be a big issue since they are not yet the parents of a child or children. Bertinelli’s filing requested that none of them shall receive spousal support, and they had a prenuptial agreement to handle the distribution of their assets.
Valerie Bertinelli and Tom Vitale met for the first time in 2004 and later got engaged in March 2010. Vitale mentioned in an interview that he met Bertinelli through her brother Patrick and was similarly divorced like Bertinelli at the time. Bertinelli is yet to issue an official statement.
