According to the site, Wesley, 34, is asking the court to reject any claim her estranged husband might make for spousal report. She reportedly cited irreconcilable differences as the reason for their split.

Married since 2005, Wesley and Fishel — a fellow actor — met while attending school at New York City's Juilliard. But it wasn't love at first sight. Far from it, in fact.
