Actor Guy Pearce and wife Kate Mestitz split

Guy Pearce, 48-year-old British-Australian actor of Memento fame, announced on October 13 that he and his psychologist wife, Kate Mestitz are divorcing after eighteen years of marriage. Pearce posted the announcement online, confirming rumors that have been circling about the couple’s status, and revealed that he and Mestitz have actually been separated since January of this year.

Pearce is known to keep his personal life private, so it was not surprising that the actor did not provide a reason for the separation. The now ex-couple met back in 1980 and had been married for eighteen years after tying the knot in 1997.

The divorce was amicable, according to reports and Pearce himself. The actor had nothing but kind words for his ex-wife in posts made to his social media accounts after news of the divorce broke.

Pink Floyd legend Roger Waters divorces wife

After three years of marriage, music legend and Pink Floyd bassist Roger Waters, 72, is divorcing his filmmaker wife, Laurie Durning.

The couple had been living together for ten years before finally tying the knot in 2012. Durning has also reportedly been telling her friends and Hamptons neighbors that she and her husband have been spending more and more time apart lately.

This is the fourth marriage for Waters, and it has been revealed that the couple did have a prenuptial agreement in place at the time of their marriage.  However, some sources still suggest that the divorce proceedings may take a long time and may be very expensive considering the prominent career Waters has had in the past decades.

Going through a divorce is one of the most difficult things a couple can do, especially if there are any children involved. Separation from a spouse means adapting to an entirely different and new lifestyle that often makes for a rocky transition.
