Julie Bowen Files for Divorce from Husband Scott Phillips

Less than a week after it was revealed that Julie Bowen and Scott Phillips had separated, E! News has confirmed that the Modern Family actress officially filed for divorce from her husband on Tuesday.

According to documents obtained by E! News, Bowen marked irreconcilable differences as the reason for their split and is asking for joint legal and physical custody of their three kids.

Bowen is also asking to terminate the court’s ability to award spousal support to Phillips. The actress also listed December 17, 2017 as the date of the couple’s separation.

Bowen and Phillips, a real estate investor, tied the knot over 13 years ago in September 2004 and the duo has three children together.

Back in April 2007, Bowen gave birth to the couple’s first child, Oliver. And then two years later, the duo welcomed twin sons John and Gustav in May 2009.

There’s been speculation about the status of the couple’s marriage over the last year. In late 2017, a report surfaced claiming Bowen and Phillips were “living separate lives.”

The couple last attended a gala together in 2016. That same year, Bowen went without Phillips to the 2016 Emmys, around the time of their 12th wedding anniversary.
