George Lopez divorcing wife Ann after 17 years [Updated]
"George and Ann Lopez have made the decision to end their 17-year marriage. The decision is amicable and by mutual agreement. They remain dedicated parents, and committed partners in business and their philanthropic organization, the Lopez Foundation,” said a rep for Lopez in a statement.
The late-night host and comedian has been negotiating the terms of his split from the 17-year marriage "for a long time," according to TMZ.
The pair tied the knot in 1993 and have a 15-year-old daughter.
The couple stepped out together just last week, to attend the yearly gala for Padres Contra el Cancer -- the Eva Longoria Parker-fronted charity that Lopez has long supported.
HuffPo notes that in 2005, Lopez underwent a kidney transplant. His wife was the donor.
[Corrected at 3:20 p.m.: A previous version of this post said the Lopezes got married in 2003; they in fact wed in 1993.]
