Bianca Kajlich, Landon Donovan: actress and soccer star to divorce
"We remain the closest of friends and will always be important parts of each others lives," the two said in a statement.
The Los Angeles Galaxy player, 28, and actress Kajlich, 33, were married on New Year's Eve 2006, then separated in October 2009. Donovan blew his estranged wife a kiss after scoring the winning goal for the U.S. team in a World Cup match against Algeria on June 23, but a rumored reconciliation didn't stick.
Documents obtained by TMZ on Wednesday reveal that Donovan is seeking spousal support and attorney's fees to be paid for by Kajlich.
