Abrams, 36, filed Friday in Los Angeles County citing irreconcilable differences, according court documents obtained by The Blast, which first reported the news. Their date of separation is listed as Aug. 29, 2017.
“It was unreal,” the Beverly Hills, 90210 alum, 46, told PEOPLE at the time. “It was perfect.”
“Things just lined up and I was like, ‘I don’t need it, I don’t want it,’ and there it came,” she added. “He completes me.”
In November, a source close to the couple told PEOPLE that while the two were not separated, they were “going through a rocky patch.”
Another source revealed that stars were trying to fix their issues and were not filing for divorce.

In November, Garth shared a message on Instagram about staying strong during challenging times.
“Resilience means the capacity to recover quickly from difficulties,” she wrote.
“But it doesn’t mean we’ll never experience sadness. It proves we’re able to spring back into shape after struggle has pushed us further than we ever imagined we could go. Resilience allows us to overcome and bounce back from heartache stronger and more flexible than before,” she continued. “I am resilient You are resilient.”
