John Mulaney and his wife Anna Marie Tendler have officially called it quits after nearly six years of marriage. The couple reportedly filed for divorce in a New York Court on Friday, July 23rd.

The pair first announced their decision to part ways in May before filing for divorce. The news arrived after John Mulaney checked himself into a Pennsylvania rehab facility for a 60-day program in December 2020.

The "Saturday Night Live" writer reportedly struggled with addiction and alcoholism after being sober for 15 years. Anna Marie Tendler released an official statement about the separation at the time:

"I am heartbroken that John has decided to end our marriage. I wish him support and success as he continues his recovery."

Meanwhile, a representative for the actor-comedian told US Weekly:

"John will not have any further comment as he continues to focus on his recovery and getting back to work."

The divorce comes after John Mulaney sparked dating rumors with actress and TV host Olivia Munn. The latter was reportedly spotted leaving Mulaney's Los Angeles residence earlier this year.

Last month, the pair were photographed by People while enjoying a lunch date at Rick's Drive In & Out restaurant in LA. According to Page Six, Anna Marie Tendler moved out of her husband's house at the beginning of this month.
